Stampin' Up! Fabulous Florets

Today I have to show you another card we made at Carole's last week. She is great at making big cards! I rarely veer from A2's! Hers is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" and I will need to make an envelope for that. Stampin' Up! has the solution here.

The paper is Graphic 45 and if you recall, I LOVE it!  Here ya go...



Carole had a ribbon on her example but for some reason I chose to use retired enamel dots that are Always Artichoke, a retiring color. I won't miss it because they are bringing back Mossy Meadow! Woo hoo!
The stamp set I used inside is from 2013 and it's called Fabulous Florets. It contains a sentiment much like the one on the front and I stamped it in the new color "Pineapple Punch", available June 1. I stamped the stems in "Mossy Meadow", which is a retired ink but is returning, like I mentioned, on June 1. Because the stamp set is way over a year old (2013), I am entering it at Retro Rubber #86
RRCB 86

I fussy cut some flowers from the Graphic 45 paper and adhered them to the stems with dimensionals. The corners were rounded with Carole's Cropadile but SU is coming out with the Detailed Trio punch, which does the same thing but more! It has 3 different type corners.

Thanks for stopping by and be happy peeps!

  1. That's a really pretty card, Karen and not at all like most of your cards. I think it's that glorious paper you've used. Clever to stamp the stems and fussy cut the flowers like that. Thanks for joining us again at Retro Rubber Challenge.
