Today's card features Stampin' Up Prized Peony in a super simple pocket card. I used the Peony die cuts to create a beautiful embellishment to stand out front and center among Stampin' Up's gorgeous Peony Garden DSP.
I started out with a sheet of Petal Pink Card stock to create the base. Once I scored the base, I took Stampin' Up Tear and Tape adhesive to the edges to create a pocket. I next decorated the front 2 panels with coordinating DSP from the Peony Garden suite.
I stamped the sentiment "love and thanks" from the Stampin' Up Prized Peony set to a scrap of Whisper White and die cut it with Stampin' Up Tasteful Label set. I gave the sentiment a little height with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I created a card for the inside with several stamps of the Prized Peony set in Basic Gray.... Now to the fun part!
Creating the front embellishment was so fun and super easy. The end results are amazing! The Peony die cut set has 4 die cuts that when cut line up perfect to create this beautiful flower. I added mini glue dots to keep them lined up but allow some wiggle room to curl the petals up to provide dimension. I cut the dies with Whisper White and sponged the edges with Stampin' Up Petal Pink. The finishing touches were a black stamina and leaves.... Oh but wait! I know its difficult to see but I spritz the flower and leaves with a mixture of water and Stampin' Up Shimmer Paint in Frost White- look at the glimmer!
I cut a circle out with Stampin' Up layered circle dies to use as a base. I used more Stampin' Up Tear and Tape to insure that flower would be secure.
I love how this card turned out and I can't believe how easy it was!
Thanks for stopping by!
