Thank You card using Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!


  • Another Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper Card
  • Days Remain to order February Sunshine and Smile Paper Pumpkin Kit
  • New Sale-A-Bration Selections added by Stampin' Up!

I'm still having fun using the Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper.  I decided to make one more card using the same color theme as my previous two cards which you can see here and here.  I again used Fresh Freesia, Blackberry Bliss, and prints from the Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper.  This paper is a Sale-A-Bration selections; free with a $50 order, less tax and shipping.  It coordinates with the Fragrant Flowers Stamp Set and Dies Bundle from the 2023 January - April 2023 Mini Catalog.  This stamp set includes several very bold sentiments, and I used them on this card.  The Fragrant Flowers Dies include several sizes of sentiment labels, which fit both the bold worlds and the smaller sentiments in the Fragrant Flowers Stamp Set.   I used both the front and back sides of one of the prints from the Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper, and added a Fresh Freesia ribbon to the card layout.   There are so many ways to use the prints in the Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper, you'll be playing with this paper for months to come.  Be sure to pick up some of this beautiful, dramatic paper before Sale-A-Bration ends at the end of February 2023. 

Floral Greeting Card using Stampin' Up! Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper

The basecard for today's card is Fresh Freezia  Cardstock.  Then a layer of Black Berry Bliss.  The image layer is two prints from the Favored Flowers 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper

Next, I selected a die from the coordinating Fragrant Flowers Dies and die cut a Fresh Freesia sentiment layer.  I stamped the sentiment from the Fragrant Flowers Stamp Set in Rich Razzelberry, but I just inked my Rich Razzelberry stamp pad, and the sentiment looks more like Blackberry Bliss.  Both work equally well on this card.    

Two Greeting cards with Thanks and Hello using Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper

I finished the card by added a ribbon of Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon between the two Favored Flowers Designer Series paper.  Then I added a Pastel Pearl to the edge of the sentiment layer.
