Another floral greeting card using Stampin' Up! Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper


  • Stampin' Up! Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper
  • Are you ready for Sale-A-Bration and the new Stampin' Up! 2023 Mini Catalog
  • Valentines Treat Boxes add-on with the Key to My Heart  January Paper Pumpkin Kit
Here's a different look using another floral prints from the Stampin' Up! Flavored Flowers Designer Series Paper.  Beginning January 5, customers can begin earning Free Sale-A-Bration items and ordering from the new January-April 2023 Mini Catalog.  Today's card uses a focal point of Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper, a FREE Sale-a-Bration Selection with a $50 order, before tax and shipping.    I used a color theme of Calypso Coral, Basic White, and Evening Evergreen.  Then I added a floral print from the Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper.  I struggled  finding a bow using current ribbon, but finally broke down and pulled a couple of different ribbons from my retired ribbon stash to use on the card.  One card uses a Petal Pink and Gold -edged ribbon and the other card uses a Calypso Coral Satin Ribbon.  Both pick up colors from the floral print.  The sentiments are stamped in Evening Evergreen ink on Basic White Cardstock die cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I used a few of the tiny Soft Succulent pearls from Festive Pearls pack from the July-December mini Catalog. Good news:  The Festive Pearls are a carry-over item.  This means you'll be able to purchase them after January 4 when most of the items in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog retire. I could make these cards all day to have on hand for so many different occasions!

The basecard for this card is Calypso Coral Cardstock.  Then a layer of Basic White, and then another layer of Calypso Coral cardstock.   

Floral Greeting Card using Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration 2023 Selections

I selected a floral print from the Favored Flowers 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper, a Free selection from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure with a $50 USD purchase.  I matted the floral print onto Evening Evergreen Cardstock.  

Floral Greeting cards using a Free Sale-A-Bration 2023 Designer Series Paper Selection from Stampin' Up!

I used a "Thanks" sentiment and the "Thinking of You" sentiment from the Go To Greeting Stamp Set.  I could have used sentiments from the coordinating Fragrant Flowers Stamp Set from the Stampin' Up! 2023 January-April Mini Catalog, however, they looked too heavy with the small piece of floral Designer Series Paper.  I stamped the sentiments in Evening Evergreen ink onto Basic White rectangles die cut using the Stitched Rectangles Dies. Then, I added a  bows of Calypso Coral Satin Ribbon on one card and Petal Pink Gold-Edged ribbon on the other card from my retired ribbons stash.  Another option would have been to use Calypso Coral Blends on White 1/4" Crinkle Seam Ribbon or 3/8" Open Weave Evening Evergreen ribbon, but I wanted to keep a lighter look to my cards.  I added pearls from the Festive Pearls pack to each card.  These pearls will carry over to upcoming catalogs, so these are available for purchase now.
