Special Day, Special Person – Framed Florets

Happy Sunday! I had an opportunity to squeeze in a clean and simple card for the Freshly Made Sketches (#558) and Color Throwdown (#715) challenges.

Did you have a chance to be creative this weekend?

Here is the result: 



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Basic White cardstock.
  • Squares:
    • I was gifted a Creative Memories Designer Paper Pack – Fresh Focus some time ago, and I chose the Green and Orange Plaid pattern.
    • Three Squares were die-cut with the (1⅞” x 1⅞”) stitched square die from the Stylish Shapes Dies set.
    • The sentiment, For a Special Person on a Special Day, from the new Framed Florets stamp set (available in November) was inked with the retired Fresh Fig ink on a scrap of Basic White cardstock and also die-cut with the same sized square die instead of directly to the card front because I wanted to be sure of my placement. 
  • Additional Accent – Tiny Flower and Leaves: Pumpkin Pie and Granny Apple Green cardstock scraps.
    • Flower: Using the Mini Four Petal Punch from the retired Itty Bitty Shapes Punch set, two pieces were punched, scrunched and adhered together.
    • Leaves: Using the Open Leaf dies from the new Framed Florets Dies set, two leaves were die-cut.

The Squares were arranged and the Floral Accent was added.  A retired Gold Iridescent Enamel Gem was added to the center of the Mini Flower completing the card.

 A fun bright Birthday card…

  1. I’m in awe of how perfectly lined up your plaid squares are, Jolanda! Love the sweet details on the sentiment square. Thanks for playing along with us at FMS this week.
