Here's another idea for using your Stampin' Up! Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper and the coordinating Dainty Delight Stamp Set.  The Dainty Flowers is a Free Sale-A-Bration Selection with a $50 order, less tax and shipping.  The Dainty Delight Stamp Set can also be purchased as a bundle with the Dainty Delight Dies. As we move into February, the final month of Sale-A-Bration for 2023, if you haven't already done so, you'll want to pick up the Dainty Flowers bundle, Item #160675 | $54.75 USD, which will earn you the Free Dainty Flowers 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper Sale-A-Bration selection.  My card today uses sentiments from the Dainty Delight Stamp Set, and I created Petal Pink butterflies using the  Brilliant Wings Dies.  Then, I used two different prints from the Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper Pack to use on the card front and as a background banner on my card.  I love creating cards with this Designer Series Paper.  There are so many fun ideas, and you'll love sending these cards to friends and family.

The basecard for today's card is Thick Basic White Cardstock.  Then, I created an image layer using one of the floral prints from the Dainty Flowers 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper.  I used an Old Olive matte for the floral print.

Next, I used the Brilliant Wings Dies and die cut three of the smallest butterflies from Petal Pink Cardstock.  I cut Dimensionals to a very thin boarder and mounted the butterflies before adding them to my card front.

I then selected a piece of Old Olive Cardstock and stamped sentiments from the Dainty Delight Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I covered the sentiments in White Embossing Powder, and set the embossing powder using my Heat Tool. Then I selected dies from the Stylish Shape Dies and from the Stitched Dies to die cut my sentiment labels.  I popped the sentiments up on Dimensionals before adding them to my card.  I finished by adding two Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins to my card.
