Christmas Cards or Birthday Cards - Fitting Florets Collection has you covered


  • Fitting Florets Collection works for Birthday Cards or Christmas Cards
  • Last week to order From the North Pole Paper Pumpkin Kit
  • North Pole Treat Sack Add-On for Paper Pumpkin Kits 

If you're looking for a single Collection that will cover your needs from Christmas Cards to Birthday Cards, you'll want to take a closer look at the Fitting Florets Collection -- a limited time collection that you'll use over and over.  Today's cards show how you can use this Collection, and the same greeting card layout, for both a Christmas Card and a Birthday Card.  I made two version of this card that shows the versatility of the two stamp sets included in this collection -- The Framed Florets Stamp Set and the Framed & Festive Stamp Set -- along with the dies and Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper.    I used Basic White, Balmy Blue and Silver Foil Sheets as my color palette for these cards.  I added die cuts flowers using the Framed Florets Dies, and a Silver Foil snowflake from the Chic Dies.  I used a Vellum insert for the Silver Foil Frame so the gorgeous Designer Series Paper showed through, and I embossed the sentiment onto the Vellum insert.    You'll love the assortment of print and florals you find in this Collection, and the fresh, new multi-occasion Collection to work with.
Birthday Card and Christmas Card using the same layout using Stampin' Up! Fitting Florets Collection

These cards use a basecard of Thick Basic White Cardstock.  Then a layer of Balmy Blue, and then an image layer of one of the floral print from the Fitting Florets 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper Pack. The sentiments are Heat Embossed White Embossing Powder.

Christmas Card using Silver Frame from Framed Florets Dies and sentiment from Stampin' Up! Framed & Festive Stamp set

I die cut Silver Foil Sheets with the Framed Florets Dies to create a frame for the sentiment layer, and added a Vellum Cardstock oval to the center of the frame using the Framed Florets Dies.  I added Silver Foil stems and Snowflakes as accents around the frame.  The stems were cut using the Framed Florets Dies, and the Snowflake was die cut using the Chic Dies.  The Christmas sentiment is White Embossed using the Framed & Festive Stamp Set.  I added a few Blue Pastel Pearls as accents.  

Birthday Card with a Silver Frame and a sentiment from the Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Bundle

This card uses the same layout as the card above.  However, with different accent elements around the Silver Foil Frame, and a Birthday Sentiment from the Framed Florets Stamp Set, this same basic layout can be used for different occasions.  The flowers and stems on this card were cut from Basic White Cardstock.  The flowers are from the Framed Florets Stamp Set, stamped in Starry Sky Ink, and colored with Balmy Blue Blends with Starry Sky Blends centers.  The leaves are colored with Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen Blends.  Then I used the Framed Florets dies to Die cut the floral.  Its mounted on Dimensionals.  I finished the card adding 3 Blue Pastel Pearls.
