Just when you think you’ve seen all the flowers, the Prized Peony comes along! I couldn’t wait to see the flower in Vellum, and I wasn’t disappointed.
Keep scrolling to see my easy-to-follow instructions, and supplies in my Product List.
Step by Step Instructions:
Cut Gray Granite Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, and fold in the middle at 4 1/4″ to make your card base. Layer the card base with Peony Garden Designer Paper, 4″ X 5 1/4″.
Make a Whisper White Cardstock panel, 3″ X 5 1/4″, and use the Peony Border die to cut both sides of the panel. Glue to the middle of your card front.
Now for the gorgeous peony, which will take some explaining. Opening this pack of dies can be intimidating, especially for someone new to stamping, so I made a chart. Five images in the stamp set have dies for cutting. Plus, there is one border “trim” die, five “build-a-peony” dies, three leaf dies, and three leaf detail dies.
Use #1- #5 “build-a-peony” dies to cut from Vellum Cardstock. They will slide into one another (smallest to largest) through the openings. Before putting together, use a Sponge Dauber to apply Petal Pink Ink to the petals and Bumble Bee Ink to the stamen. Apply small dots of glue at the bottom of the petals, as you slide them into place. Add glue to the middle of the back of the completed flower, and attach to the panel.
Cut three leaves from Vellum, and color with a Sponge Dauber and Pear Pizzazz Ink. Cut the same leaves from Whisper White Cardstock, and use a tiny dot of glue at the base to attach to the Vellum leaves. Slide the leaves beneath the flowers with a dot of glue.
Stamp the sentiment, from the Prized Peony Stamp Set, in Gray Granite Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Use a Stitched So Sweetly Die for cutting, and place on Dimensionals.
I think you will be pleased with your completed card. My husband said this is one of his all time favorites.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
The peony in vellum and a soft palette is stunning! Thanks for the inspiration Su!
Thank you, Kylie! I don’t usually have comments on cards from a year ago.
Love the Delicate Vellum Peony, such a pale softness to it. Well done.
Thankyou for sharing this technique with us.
Lovely card, Sue! Love the soft color on the peony. I must try this on the vellum! Thanks for sharing your talent!
Thank you, Connie! I think you’ll enjoy working with the vellum!
I love that you used vellum…I have a bunch of it. I am going to try to use today. love and hugs
I’m so glad you like it, Liz! Have fun and enjoy your day! Hugs back!
Your card is beautiful. I think this stamp bundle is the prettiest flower set they have created, but the sunflower set is a very close runner up. I don’t even care for sunflowers. Both the peony and sunflower sets have so many layers to them that they just look like eye candy. Great job with your card. Oh yes, the grey granite shimmer ribbon looks so delicious.
I’m so glad you like it, Stella! I don’t have the sunflower, but I’ve seen beautiful cards made with it.
WOW! That is a beautiful card. So soft looking made in vellum. Great job.
Thank you, Karen! This bundle will be getting lots of use!
Su, that is gorgeous! I love the vellum and soft colors. So pretty! Enjoy your day!
Thank you Hilda! You enjoy your day also!
