Well, here we are again with another floral card. This time it is all about the Fine Art Floral Suite from Stampin’ Up! I have to say, in no uncertain terms, this is one of my all-time favorite suites of products. If you love everything floral as much as I do, the Fine Art Floral Suite – Thinking of You is perfect!

Hydrangeas are awesome! I remember my Grandmother always having huge, I mean HUGE hydrangea bushes in front of her home. The flowers were purple and blue and absolutely gorgeous. Clearly, my Grandmother could grow anything. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for me. At least, now I can stamp them to my heart’s content, and in any color I choose. Hopefully, you will create a Hydrangea “For You” card for someone in your life. Your thoughtfulness will certainly be appreciated.

Even though we often need them, creating a heartfelt sympathy card can be very difficult. It does not matter whether it is for a loved one or a casual friend; they become a necessary part of our card making repertoire.
Wanting to design a card that was not only easy to replicate, but timeless, and thought-provoking, the Love of Leaves bundle, came to mind. With minimal stamping and the simplicity of a single leaf, this card ultimately expresses heartfelt sympathy.
I am hopeful the recipient will appreciate the calmness this card portrays and the thoughts of nature. When the time comes, and you require a sympathy card, I hope this will come to mind, and you too will create one.
THICK Whisper White cardstock (card base) — 4-1/4″ x 11″; score and fold at 5-1/2″
Gold Foil Sheet (1st layer) — 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″

Just when we least expect it, we are in need of a sympathy card. Sympathy cards are never fun to create and often bring tears to our eyes. I am hopeful that this card will fill your need. When designing this card, I wanted something that you can use for a variety of occasions. I think I have accomplished that. This beautiful card is also appropriate for birthdays, Mother’s Day, Weddings, Congratulations and more. I hope when you are in need of a unique and beautiful card, you will consider it!
Cutting Instructions: Thick Whisper White cardstock 4-1/4″ x 11″, score at 5-1/2″ and 4-1/4″ (card base); Gold Foil Sheets 4″ x 4″, 1″ x 4″ (cut scalloped oval framelits die from center of piece) (place on card base and side panel); Springtime Foils Speciality Designer Series Paper 3-7/8″ x 3-7/8″ (layer on gold foil); Whisper White cardstock scrap die cut oval stitched shapes framelits die (layer on gold oval)
I love this unique fold that allows the best usage of a 12″ x 12″ piece of cardstock. The Gold Foil Paper is cut to 4″ x 4″, the Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper is cut at 3-7/8″ x 3-7/8″. By cutting the paper in this manner, you will get nine pieces out of the 12″ x 12″ paper. Where if you cut the dimensions of 4″ x 5-1/4″ you would only get six pieces. It is always a treat when your paper goes farther!!
