The card today is another Celebrating Birthdays sample from the monthly class. It is a quick and simple card. Yet the use of the Country Floral Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF) creates a look of elegance. The Petal Pink and Whisper White color scheme provides a soft look. Another reminder, the Country Floral Dynamic TIEF is currently available for FREE during Sale-a-bration. (psst – here’s a secret: the embossing folder is carrying over in the new catalog out on June 3rd but why wait and pay for it when you can get it free with a $50 order through March 31)
Below are the materials and directions for recreating the card:
Petal Pink Cardstock: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base); 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ square (for circle)
Whisper White Cardstock: cut two: 4″ x 5-1/4″ (one for card front, one for interior); 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ square (for sentiment)
Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF)
Layering Circles Framelits
Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins
Petal Pink/Whisper White Variegated Ribbon
Clear Block Size D
Use the Country Floral Dynamic TIEF to texture emboss one 5-1/4″ x 4″ Whisper White cardstock. Attach to front of Petal Pink card base with adhesive.
Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Special Celebrations stamp set on the small Whisper White cardstock square. Cut circle using a Layering Circles Framelits Die.
Cut the Petal Pink cardstock square using the next size of Layering Circles Framelits.
Punch 2 sets of leaves from the Vellum cardstock using the Leaf Punch. Sandwich the leaves between the sentiment layer and the Petal Pink cardstock circle layer. Attach to the center of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Embellish by adding Petal Pink adhesive-backed sequins and a Petal Pink/Whisper White Variegated Ribbon bow to complete the card front.

There are many wonderful techniques you can use with the Florentine Filigree stamp set. It’s almost like creating magic before your eyes. Bryan from Stampin’ Up! has some wonderful projects to show you exactly how you can use this stamp set. There are some wonderful sentiments to use for a variety of occasions.
Have you seen the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper on page 11 in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog? It is a gorgeous paper! The beauty of the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper is the elegant design. In my opinion, the catalog photos do not do justice for the paper! A vellum print from the designer paper creates the primary background layer on the card below. The Floral Romance Suite includes the Wonderful Romance bundle with the Wonderful Romance Stamp Set and Wonderful Framelits Dies. The sentiment and coordinating leaf embellishments are easily stamped and cut using the Wonderful Romance bundle. The beauty of the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) is that you do not need to add a lot of embellishment…let the paper be the feature!
Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper (5″ x 3-3/4″)
Pear Pizzazz Cardstock (card base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ – score at 5-1/2″; 3″ x 3-1/2″ for leaves)
Scrap of Mossy Meadow cardstock for small leaves
Whisper White Cardstock (card layer: 4″ x 5-1/4″, 2-1/4″ x 2-1/2″ for sentiment)

Frosted Flower Embellishments
Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals
Fold the Pear Pizzazz cardstock at score line to create a side fold card base.
Attach the Whisper White cardstock layer to the Pear Pizzazz card base with adhesive.
Use adhesive to attach the Floral Romance DSP to the Whisper White cardstock layer.
Stamp sentiment from the Wonderful Romance Stamp Set with Fresh Fig Classic Stampin’ Ink onto the small piece of Whisper White cardstock. Use the die from the Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies to cut the oval shape.
Stamp the large leaves shape using Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Ink onto the Pear Pizzazz cardstock. Cut using coordinating framelit die. Use the small leaves dies to cut and emboss Pear Pizzazz cardstock to create three (3) leaves.
With the leaf framelit (stem with 5 leaves), cut a scrap of Mossy Meadow cardstock. Trim the two (2) small leaves to use on front of sentiment.
Layer the Pear Pizzazz leaf and the Mossy Meadow leaves behind the sentiment oval. Attach to card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Embellish the front of the card with the individual leaves and the Frosted Flower embellishments.
Finish by adding a triple loop bow tied using Fresh Fig 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon.
