Last month when the Ornate Garden Suite was released, I loved it all and was excited to start creating with it…and haven’t stopped since. One of the reasons I really like this suite is that along with the 2 stamp and die sets in the suite, it coordinates wonderfully with the Daisy Lane stamp set, Daisy and Medium Daisy punches. That’s a lot of crafting possibility! You can see all the amazing products packed into this suite HERE.
Materials & Measurements
- Whisper White thick cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Old Olive cardstock: 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ & 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside)
- Ornate Garden DSP: 5 1/4″ x 4″
- Whisper White cardstock: 5″ x 3 3/4″ (inside)
- Early Espresso cardstock: small scrap
- Glue the DSP to the Old Olive cardstock.
- Cut a circle using a die from the Layering Circles dies.
- Wrap a piece of Old Olive ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo around either side of the cut out circle. Adhere the bow with a mini glue dot.
- Cut a Whisper White scalloped circle to create a frame and glue around the cut out circle.
- Glue this panel directly to the card base.
- Note: You could make this a little easier…and skip cutting the circle through the cardstock and DSP panels. Wrap the ribbon around the entire panel. And cut a Whisper White scalloped circle to glue on top of the card. I liked the inlaid look of cutting a circle in the card front but that’s totally optional and the end result will look equally nice.
- Stamp 2 large daisies and 2 medium daisies from the Daisy Lane stamp set on Crushed Curry cardstock with Crushed Curry ink.
- Form the flower by layering and offsetting each daisy. I punched the center from Early Espresso yardstick and embossed it with the Subtles Embossing Folder for a little bit of texture.
- Adhere the daisy in the center of the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The sentiment, from the Ornate Thanks stamp, is stamped in Soft Suede ink and punched with the Classic Label punch.
- I combined two more sentiments from the Ornate Thanks stamp set to create the inside sentiment.
- It only takes a few little strips of Old Olive cardstock and Ornate Garden DSP to go a long way to add a pretty touch to the inside of the card and envelope. The daisies are just so cheerful!
Like always this time of year in our little stamping world, there’s so much coming and going. So much to look forward to and so much to be sorry to see go. I’m happy that Stampin’ Up! released this suite early and that it will be around for the whole next year. It hasn’t left my desk since it was released!
