  • Basic White card stock (cs) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches
  • Basic White cs: 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches to die cut the large scalloped rectangle and 2 x 3 1/4 inches for the sentiment
  • Blackberry Bliss cs: 1 1/8 x 2 3/8 inches to go behind the sentiment
  • Hues of Happiness DSP; enough to die cut the flowers and leaves needed


  • Happiness Abounds stamp set
  • Blossoming Happiness Dies
  • Scalloped Contours Dies (also on sale!)
  • Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder (also on sale!)
  • Blackberry Bliss Ink
  • Foam Adhesive Sheets: one sheet cut into 1/4 inch strips
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Multipurpose Liquid Glue
  • Opal Rounds
  • Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine


  1. Run the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch Basic White cs through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. Then run it through with the large scalloped rectangle in the Scalloped Contours Dies. Set aside
  2. Use the Blackberry Ink and the “You are wonderful in every way” sentiment. Stamp onto the 2 x 3 1/4 inch Basic White cs. Run this through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the smaller scalloped rectangle in the Scalloped Contours Dies.
  3. Adhere the sentiment to the Blackberry Bliss cs. Set aside.

4. Use the Blossoming Happiness Dies to die cut the flowers from the Hues of Happiness DSP.

Tip: When adding dimension to the card with a large card piece, use the Foam Adhesive sheets cut into 1/4 inch strips. You get more even support of the card piece.

5. Adhere the large embossed scalloped Basic White cs rectangle to the front of the Basic White cs card base with the 1/4 inch strips of the Foam Adhesive Sheets.

6. Adhere the sentiment with the 1/4 inch Foam Adhesive strips. Use a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals in the center of the larger flower to adhere it. Add the smaller flower and leaves by sliding them under the larger flower. I use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue for this. It is easier to slide the card pieces.

7. Add the Opal Rounds and Voila! you have a very elegant card!

Demonstrators from all over the world who want to improve their Stampin’ Up! business. Be sure to see everyone’s Blog on the hop and you will be amazed at all the inspiration and creativity!

My Card

The Fitting Florets Collection has been available to Demonstrators since October 4, 2022. Today, November 1, 2022 everyone will be able order it! This lovely collection includes: Framed Florets and Framed & Festive stamp sets, Framed Florets Dies, Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper (DSP) and Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls.

Here is how to make my card


  • Thick Basic White cardstock (cs): 4 1/4 x 11 inches for the card base. 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 3 x 4 inches for cutting the frames.
  • Vellum cs: 4 x 5 1/4 inches to cut the inside oval for the sentiment
  • Basic White cs: 4 1/4 x 11 inches to stamp the flowers & leaves on.


  1. Stamp the flower & leaf images onto the 4 1/4 x 11 inch Basic White cs. Color with Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. I used: Poppy Parade combo, Dark Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce combo, Dark Mint Macaron and Light Daffodil Delight.
  1. Use the Framed Florets Dies to cut all of the images out. You will also need to stamp and color an additional small single flower, large single flower, sprig of leaves and the pair of leaves for the inside of the card.
  2. Run the Thick Basic White cs card base through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder on the front panel. Set aside.
  3. Cut out the larger frame in the Framed Florets Dies from the Vellum cs and from the Thick Basic White cs.
  4. Cut out the smaller frame from the Thick Basic White cs.
  5. Use the Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment “Thank you with all my Heart” in Stazon Black Ink onto the oval created when you cut the large frame from the Vellum cs.
  6. Adhere the stamped Vellum cs oval to the Thick Basic White cs oval with Mini Glue Dots around the edges such that they will be covered with the flowers.
  7. Adhere the large frame cut from the Thick Basic White cs to the front of the card base.
  8. Adhere the Vellum/Thick Basic White cs oval to the center of the large frame.
  9. Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere the smaller frame over the sentiment piece.
  10. Lay the flowers and leaves down the way you would like them to look.
  11. I adhered some with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and some with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  12. Add the Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls.
  13. For the inside of the card adhere the images as shown below.

Voila! You have a very elegant Thank You card!
