  • Christmas Card using upcoming Fitting Florets Collection - avail 1 Nov
  • Ho Ho Ho Paper Pumpkin unboxing video and gift sack add-on
  • Final Days for Starter Kit Special:  Select $155 in merchandise for $99

Yet another card showcasing the Fitting Florets Collection, which will be available for purchase beginning 1 November 2022.  This fabulous Collection from Stampin' Up! includes two stamp sets, coordinating dies plus Designer Series Paper and accessories that works for Fall and Christmas Holidays and takes you right into Spring with hearts and beautiful floral prints.  I used one of the prints from the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper as my focal point.  I colored the berries in the Designer Series Paper using a Cherry Cobbler Blends Marker to make the paper more Christmassy.  I used the Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen colors of the print as my color palette for the card, including the Evening Evergreen frame I die cut using the Framed Florets Dies.   I also used the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder on my Soft Succulent layer, and added die cuts using the more dies from the Framed Florets Dies.  For a little sparkle, I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels.   Add this Collection to your November order, and you'll have a fresh, new multi-occasion Collection to work with as you create cards, tags and gifts wrapping during the next several months.

Christmas Card idea using the Stampin' Up! Fitting Florets Collection

This card uses a basecard of Soft Succulent Cardstock.  Then a layer of Evening Evergreen, and then layer of Soft Succulent Cardstock dry embossed using the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder.  Then I selected a print from the Fitting Florets 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper an matted it using Basic White Cardstock.

Next, I created an Evening Evergreen Oval Frame die cut using dies from the Framed Florets Dies.  I the same die on Basic White Cardstock and used the inside oval as my sentiment layer.  I stamped one of the sentiments from the Framed & Festive Stamp Set in Soft Succulent Ink on the Basic White oval.    

Christmas Cards using Ovals and Christmas greenery

To complete the  card, I die cut a Basic White and Soft Succulent die cuts using additional dies in the Framed Florets Dies, added a bow of Evening Evergreen Open Weave Ribbon, and a few Red Rhinestone basic Jewels.
