Today is all about enjoyment. There is so much to be thankful for in the world. I created a card using the Prized Peony Bundle. I am a big fan of coral and brown. So today’s card uses one of my favorite color combinations.

And I combined one of my favorite stamp sets, Very Versailles, with Prized Peony. I even managed to use some Paper Pumpkin leftovers. Here is my card.

  • Whisper White cardstock: 4″ x 5-1/4″ for card message insert
  • Thick Whisper White cardstock: 3″ x 6″ for stamping and die-cutting peony & leaves

CREATING PIECES & PARTS

PEONY

  • Stamp peony and leaves with Basic Gray ink on Whisper White.
  • Color with Stampin’ Blends. I used Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, and Just Jade.

BACKGROUND & SENTIMENT

  • Stamp script from Very Versailles stamp set onto the Early Espresso card panel with gold ink. Let dry.
  • Die-cut stamped Early Espresso panel with Stitched Rectangle dies.
  • Stamp sentiment with Versamark ink and heat emboss with gold embossing powder.
  • Trim sentiment to size.

ASSEMBLY

  • Add gold hoop and secure with Paper Pumpkin gold foil leave stickers as shown. (You may see a slight stamp on the background here. That was a mistake but not a big deal so I continued to use the panel.)

  • Layer elements.
  • Add Dimensionals behind the large peonies.
  • Use mini black Dimensional behind the far right side of sentiment strip and a glue dot on sentiment strip that covers peony.
  • Customize the card insert and envelope with additional die-cuts, stamping, or DSP.
