I began today’s card with the background, using a Gorgeous Garden Die as a stencil. I placed the die on top of Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/2″, and smoothed on Lost Lagoon Ink with a Blending Brush. After coloring, I trimmed the cardstock to 3 3/4″ X 5″, and rinsed the ink from the die with water.

Gorgeous Floral


Next, I glued the pattern of leaves to Bubble Bath Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″, which I glued to a Lost Lagoon card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.


The flowers and foliage are from the Textured Floral Bundle. To create the flowers, I used a Blending Brush to apply Bubble Bath Ink to Basic White Cardstock. Then, I stamped the flowers, from the Textured Floral Stamp Set in Berry Burst Ink, used their Textured Floral Die for cutting, and placed them on Dimensionals.

Prior to attaching the flowers to the card front, I glued three bunches of foliage in a circle. The foliage was cut with a Textured Floral Die from Lost Lagoon Cardstock.


The sentiment, “with a grateful heart,” is from the Textured Floral Stamp Set. I stamped it in Memento Black Ink, used a Sending Die for cutting, and attached it with Dimensionals.

I completed the design with three, 2023-2025 In Color Dots. The dots are Moody Mauve, but I’m pretending they are Berry Burst, shhhh.


I was inspired by The Paper Players.
