Textured Peony


Step by Step Instructions:

Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, and fold in the middle at 4 1/4″ to make your card base.

Glue a Square Vellum Doily to the card base, as shown.

Hand paint stripes of Soft Sea Foam with a Stampin’ Blend across Whisper White Cardstock, 3 1/2″ X 5″.

Use the Nature’s Thoughts Die to cut the striped layer, and adhere on top of the doily.


Cut the five “build a peony” flower parts from Very Vanilla Cardstock.

Emboss all, but the stamen, with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.

Brush the edges of the petals using a Sponge Dauber and Blushing Bride Ink.

Slide the flower parts together, smallest to largest, matching the bottom edge, and adding a dot of glue to hold them together.

Stamp three leaves in Soft Sea Foam Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with Peony Dies. Add color with a Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blend.

Attach the flower and two leaves with Dimensionals. You’ll add the third leaf after placing the sentiment.


The sentiment, “for you” is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set. Stamp it in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, cut with the smallest Stitched Nested Labels Die, and tuck under the flower with a dot of glue. Now, add that third leaf.

For a touch of blue, like Manuela, add some Woven Threads Sequins, and you’re done!
