This is a LONG post, so stay with me.

I am using the new Ornate Garden Suite. As I’ve said before, its awesome. All of the cards will fit into my card holder, which you can get the pdf for FREE with a $50 order. Details are at the end of my post.

Ornate Garden Suite

The first card has a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Terracotta Tile card base. The Mint Macaron is 3 1/2″ x 5″ and stamped with Mint Macaron Ink with the large background stamp in the bundle. I also stamped it on a piece of Whisper White (Black Memento Ink) and colored just the daisies and leaves with Stampin’ Blends. The daisies are tucked under the sentiment that is 3/4″ x 4″. Then the sentiment with the flowers have Dimensionals and adhered to the Stitched So Sweetly die label. I added the little bow with the matching ribbon. Finished off with a few of the Gilded Gems.

I used Daffodil Delight & Old Olive, light & dark Blends.

Don’t forget the inside. I used one of the Ornate Layers Dies and stamped the single flower in the corner and colored with the Blends.

For this one I started with an 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Old Olive cardstock. The next layer is 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White. This piece I die cut just the right edge with one of the Ornate Border Dies. Isn’t it pretty with the border? I added a few of the Gilded Gems in the center of the flowers. That layer is adhered with Tombow Liquid Glue. You will also need a piece of the Ornate Garden dsp cut at 1/2″ x 5″.  Before you adhere, you will need  to die cut a border die in Terracotta Tile and adhere to the dsp strip, then onto your Whisper White c/s.

Stamp Seriously in Terracotta Tile and cut down to a small strip, and Stamp the THANK YOU in Old Olive and die cut with the Stitched Rectangle. That piece is attached with Dimensionals. Stamp the daisies from the large stamp, color and fussy cut. Tuck them under the sentiment with Glue Dots. Add a few of the Gilded Gems.

Die cut the large frame in Whisper White and adhere to the inside of the card.

This card has a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Of Mint Macaron for the card base. You will also need a piece 4″ x 5 1/4″  Mint Macaron embossed with the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder. Adhere with Tombow (that way it gets in all the nooks and crannies). Die cut 2 of the large frames, one in Terracotta Tile for the front, and one in Whisper White cardstock for the inside.  Attach the Terracotta Tile with Dimensionals. Add a 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ piece of dsp. Stamp the Single Daisy in Memento Ink and color with Stampin’ Blends. Fussy cut and add to the left side of the frame with Dimensionals. Add a Old Olive Bow.  With a 1/2″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White, stamp the sentiment in Terracotta Tile, attach with Dimensionals.

Add a few Gilded Gems.

Stamp the flower and color with Stampin’ Blends on the Whisper White frame, and attach with Tombow.  If you forget to stamp and color the flower, I would leave it off. The color from the Blends might bleed onto your card base.

This last card has a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Terracotta Tile card base. You will need a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of dsp for the next layer. Adhere to your card base. Add the Old Olive Ribbon and tie into a bow to one side. Stamp the sentiment in Terracotta tile onto Whisper White. Die cut with the Stitched Rectangles Die. Die cut a frame from the Ornate Dies and layer the sentiment. Attach with snail.

Stamp the single flower 5 times in Memento Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Color with Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut. Layer with Dimensionals on two corners. Add Gilded Gems to flower center. Stamp for everything on a strip of Whisper White, 3/8″ x 2 1/4″, add Dimensionals and attach at bottom right side of card.

Add a Whisper White frame with stamped single flower. Color with Blends.
