Beautiful Banners, Thoughtful Banners, Falling Flowers, Detailed Floral Thinlits, Fun Fold Card, Stampin Up

Hello, my Stampin’ friends! This is a fun card that I made for my daughter’s upcoming birthday. She will be 19 years old, and being the youngest of all of my children, I wanted to really make a bright and cheery card for the last of her teenage years. Wow! Where did they all go?? I had such a fun time playing with lots of new stamp sets and their coordinating framelits to make this card. I don’t believe that any of them outshine the others – you simply have to get them all because you will absolutely love them all! I barely know the names of all of these incredible products since they just arrived on my doorstep last Wednesday.

  • This card started out with me wanting to play with the Detailed Floral framelits, so I did that panel after cutting the Z fold cardbase and layering it with the new Affectionately Yours DSP.
  • The back panel was next, using the Beautiful Banners stamp set, and cutting it out with the Banners framelits.
  • A very simple flower was then stamped from Falling Flowers stamp set and cut out with the coordinating framelit. I had two leaves that were already cut out from Rose Garden Thinlits and they matched perfectly so used them to fill up some space.
  • The celebrate sentiment was stamped, from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set, after stamping the banner and cut out with the coordinating punch. Flowers were cut from the new May Flowers Thinlits.
  • After the card was assembled, my favorite bling, Rhinestones, were added. The back of card (you can’t have a blank surface with a fun fold card!) is where we will sign it and I even made a little pocket for a gift card. What teenager doesn’t love those?!? Here’s more photos:
