Peaceful Moments, Fine Art Floral DSP, Thank You Card, 2021 Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog

Here's a perfect way to use up some Designer Series Paper (DSP) and make a bunch of cards at the same time. It's quick and easy too.

The base of this card is a folded half-sheet of Blushing Bride card stock. This card opens at the bottom and the fold is at the top.

I cut a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Blushing Bride card stock and textured it using the "Ornate Floral" embossing folder. Then I cut it to 4" x 5-1/4".  

Next I die cut the Mossy Meadow frame piece using the die from the "Ornate Layers" that was part of the "Ornate Style" bundle. 

The DSP is from the "Fine Arts Floral" 12" x 12" package. I cut it at 3-1/2" x 2-1/8".  I glued it in place on top of the frame piece using Tombow mono glue.  You can tape yours but I wanted to make sure I was able to move the piece around a bit to get it centered before it was set in place permanently.  

The frame piece was set in place on top of the card using Dimensionals. 

The words are from the "Peaceful Moments" set and were stamped on Basic White using black Memento ink. I used the smallest rectangle in the set of 8 "Rectangle Stitched" Framelets. There's 13 dies in that set, one single small almost squarish one, 4 long rectangle ones and 8 graduated rectangles. It's a fun set to have. Once the words were die cut I set them in place using glue on the upper part and Dimensionals on the lower part. You really do need to add the Dimensionals to the lower part or it will sag. I slipped the Dimensional under the frame piece. Enough sticky showed through to make contact with the word piece. Plus even if it didn't stick, the glue will and the piece won't sag. Kind of a win win! 

I didn't have any current ribbon so I used some that I had on hand and I tied a bow and glued it in place.

A large rhinestone was added to the upper corner of the word piece. And to finish off the card, I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White to the inside and I was done.

Now I'm going to dig out a bunch of my old retired DSP and make some cards using this layout. I can use up a lot of DSP this away!

Thank you SO much for taking your time to stop by and see what I was up to today,

This is a beautiful card and so versatile with the change of sentiment. My goal this year is to use my stash of DSP. Thanks for the inspiration, Wanda. Enjoy your day.

The fancy die cut behind the beautiful designer paper makes the flowers look like a framed painting. Very pretty!
