One More Floral Essence Card

Today I’m sharing the last of a group of cards I recently made using products from the Perennial Essence Suite.


I CASEd this card here from Mary Deatherage. Here is how I made the card:

Card base – Flirty Flamingo cardstock cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and fold in half.

Cut piece of Designer Series Paper from the Perennial Essence DSP pack and adhere to card base.

Stamp large floral image with Flirty Flamingo ink, first stamping off and then stamping onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock. Stamp the greeting using Blackberry Bliss ink. Die cut with the next to largest Stitched Shape circle die.

Stamp four flower petals with Calypso Coral ink on a piece of Calypso Coral cardstsock. Punch out with the Perennial Flower Punch. Attach two of the petals together with a Mini Glue Dot to make each of the flowers. Attach flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals to card front along left side of the circle image. Add those adorable Perennial Essence Floral Centers to each flower for an extra pop of color.

Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″ for inside of card. Stamp one of the floral images from the set with Flirty Flamingo ink on the bottom corner and adhere to card.

I love how the color combination works on this card! I can’t get enough of this gorgeous impressionist looking paper so I know you will be seeing more cards from me using this paper in the future.

Floral Essence Butterfly Card

Hello! I hope you had a wonderful July 4th holiday weekend! I’m back to posting more regularly again after having to take a short break. I took a few days two weeks ago to visit my home town of New York City to visit with friends I haven’t seen in a number of years. When I arrived back home I unexpectedly got project work for my information consulting business from a new client, which was a very pleasant surprise! So, some of the cards I made for my June club and a private workshop were photographed but I never got to upload them until now. Over the next few days I will be sharing them with you.

Today I’m sharing one of several cards I made using the gorgeous Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper. These papers look like impressionist paintings and could easily stand on their own with little embellishment. This card also features the butterfly from the Springtime Impressions Dies.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base: Cut piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and fold in half.
  • Cut piece of Designer Series Paper at 4″ x 5 1/4″ . Cut piece of Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon at 4 1/2″ and attach to the DSP, folding the ends in to the back of the paper. Attach piece to card base.
  • Use a die cutting machine to cut the butterfly from a piece of Purple Posy cardstock. Attach to center of card over the ribbon by dotting liquid glue around the butterfly.
  • Cut a strip of vellum cardstock at 1/2″ and stamp the greeting from the Floral Essence stamp set with Blackberry Bliss ink. Make sure the ink is dry before cutting flags at both ends of the strip. I’ve found that sometimes the ink smudges on the vellum if you touch it because it doesn’t always dry instantly. Attach to center of the butterfly.
  • For the inside of the card, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Cut a strip of the DSP at 1″ x 4″ and attach to bottom of white piece. Attach to inside of card.
