Hello again! It’s been awhile since my last post, so I’m popping in to show you what we made in my card class this week. This week’s class was a showcase of the gorgeous Floral Boutique suite.

inbetween lineWe made 3 cards in this class. For the first card, I used one of Stampin’ Up!’s designs from the Annual Catalogue, as inspiration. We used a card base of Night Of Navy cardstock. A layer of DSP from the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper was glued to the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White card, we stamped the floral stamp from Floral Phrases twice, using Night Of Navy ink. One stamp was the right way up: the other was upside down, so the two images met.

We used a card base of Whisper White. Using the Detailed Floral Thinlits dies, we cut a 14×10.2cm card front out of Night Of Navy ink. The edges were trimmed off using the accompanying Edgelit die. You need to cut the Detailed Floral die on the Steel Precision Plate; but I swapped over the a standard cutting pad when using the Edgelit, so I didn’t cause damage to it.

On the center of the card front, we stamped a sentiment with Versamark, and heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

Inside the card, we stamped a sentiment, and behind the sentiment, we stamped the floral image again – but stamped off on Grid Paper 3 times before stamping on the card, so it was a fainter image.

A banner of Floral Boutique DSP was glued in place over the floral stamp, followed by a strip of Silver Glimmer Paper.  A banner of Whisper White, stamped with a sentiment from Floral Phrases, was held in place over the DSP and Glimmer Paper using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Inside the card, we stamped the long border image from Floral Phrases.
