I'm finding more ways to use the new Stampin' Up! Countryside Inn Suite.  Today I'm combining it with the Something Fancy Dies and and flowers from the Two Tone Flora Stamp Set.  My color combination is Basic White, Boho Blue, and Night of Navy  This is such a simple, fun layout.  I selected a print from the countryside Inn Designer Series Paper, and cut it on the diagonal to create interest.  Then I die cut tags using the Fancy Dies, one in Boho Blue and the images are stamped on the Basic White tag die cut.  I added a bow using the new 3/8" Boho Blue Textured Ribbon.  This ribbon looks like it would be bulky and hard to tie into a bow, but it turns out that the ribbon is nice and flat, and very pliable making it easy to work with.  I tied a double bow in a very small size and it turned out great.  On the tag, I tried several different flowers from several different stamp set, and the one I ended up using is from the Two Tone Flora Stamp Set.  I stamped them in Boho Blue and Night of Navy, as this is a two-step stamp.  I found several sentiment that worked with this size tag in the Circle Sayings Stamp Set.  I finished by adding three of he large size Blueberry Bushel Gems from the Tinsel Gems Four Pack.  It's always a little unnervinig to begin playing with new and unfamiliar products, but then you begin to pull from your past  and realize that these novel, new products are enjoyable and quickly become familiar and relaxing to play with.

Floral Thank You Card using Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper From Stampin' Up!

The basecard for today's card is Thick Basic White Cardstock.  Then a layer Boho Blue Cardstock--one of the new In Colors for 2023-2025.  Then I used the same print I used on yesterday's card from the Countryside Inn 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper. I cut it at a diagonal angle, and then finished off the edge with a strip of 1/2" Boho Blue Cardstock.

I stamped images from the Lazy Days Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink on the Basic White Layer.  There are separate image's for the rocking chair, the side table and the wood flooring, so you can position them as you please.  I also used the Lazy days Dies to create masks for the Rocking Chair and side table before I stamped the flooring.  

The sentiment is also from the Lazy Days Stamp Set and it is stamped in Night of Navy ink.  I added a Blueberry Bushel Gem from the Tinsel Gems Four Pack to the side of my flap.  I also added half of a Velcro Dot to the underside of the flap so that the flap would stay closed.  (See below)

Here are the cutting Dimensions for this card.  

Align the score line of the Boho Blue layer against the 5-1/4" edge of the Inside cardstock and glue to the underside of the Inside layer.  Then glue the Inside layer into place inside the card.

Stamp the images onto the smaller tab, and then glue the smaller layer onto the larger tab layered under the Inside of the card.

Add a Velcro dot to hold the card closed.   Below are the Stamps, Dies and accessories used on this card.
