Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team is showcasing “Gifts From the Garden.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
Can’t you see a garden filled with gorgeous peonies? Today’s “thank you” card has step-by-step instructions, plus my supplies in the Product List below. Enjoy!
Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, fold in the middle at 4 1/4″, making your card base.
Layer with Whisper White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″, embossed with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.
Prior to gluing the embossed layer to the card base, tape a strand of Linen Thread to the back, positioned as shown.
Cut a panel 2 1/4″ X 5 1/4″ from Neutrals 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper in Crumb Cake, and glue in the center of the embossed layer.
Cut a second panel 2″ X 5 1/4″ from Soft Sea Foam Cardstock, trim the sides using a Peony Die, and glue in the center of the Designer Paper.
Stamp the peony, from the Prized Peony Stamp Set, in VersaMark on Whisper White Cardstock. Sprinkle with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and set with the Heat Tool.
Color with Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends, which is SO MUCH FUN! The embossing keeps the color within the lines, which you’ll have to try to see what I mean. Use the darker Stampin’ Blends to add definition to the petals. After cutting with the Peony Die, place the flower on Dimensionals.
Stamp three leaves in Soft Sea Foam Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, cut with Peony Dies, and glue in place.
Using a Forever Flourishing Die, cut the sprig from Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and glue in place.
“Thank you” is from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set, stamped in Soft Suede Ink, and fussy cut. This means I used Paper Snips to cut by hand. Glue the “k” to the flower, and attach the remainder with Dimensionals to be the same level as the flower.
Add a few Woven Threads Sequins (white tone), and your card is complete.
Thanks so much for visiting me today. I wish you a garden filled with peonies!

Gorgeous card Su, as usual! Thanks for showing us how to use that border die on both sides of a strip…love it!

Great card! The coloring with the embossed Peony is absolutely gorgeous!!
What a beautiful card Su! Thanks for sharing it with us!
Thank you, Denise! You are most welcome!
I love the peony embossed in white! How careful do you have be when coloring it in? Will the alcohol markers actually color the embossed part if you’re not fairly diligent about coloring within the lines, or can you just go wild splashing color around and wipe off the color from the embossing after?
Thank you, Amanda! Be careful close to the outside line, otherwise go wild!
Love all your layers, Su. Even with the layers, your card feels clean and gorgeous!
Thank you, Sue! That’s a very nice compliment!
