Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Thistle Thinking of You Card

I used the Beautiful Thistle Bundle along with paper from the Dainty Flowers 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper pack to create this pretty thinking of you card.  You can earn the Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper for free with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration and this paper perfectly coordinates with the Dainty Delight Bundle which is availalbe in the Jan-Apr 2023 Mini Catalog!  The Beautiful Thistle Bundle is also available from the Jan-Apr 2023 Mini Catalog.

I adhered a strip of the Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper in an Old Olive floral pattern to a Starry Sky lattice patterned paper from the same designer series paper pack. This unit was then adhered to a white mat, then adhered to the front of an Old Olive card base.

The largest thistle image was stamped onto a scrap of Basic White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and I used Stampin’ Blends in Old Olive, Fresh Freesia and Highland Heather to color in the image. The coordinating die from the Beautiful Thistle Dies set was used to cut out the image. The large thistle flower was adhered to the card front at an angle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A sentiment was stamped onto a piece of white cardstock measuring approximately 2-1/2″ x 1-1/4″ in Starry Sky ink and I die cut the label using the smallest rectangle from the Deckled Rectangles Dies set. The sentiment label was adhered to the lower left of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside panel I stamped an additional sentiment in Starry Sky ink and stamped the smaller thistle image using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I used Stampin’ Blends in Old Olive and Highland Heather to color in this smaller thistle image. The panel was then adhered to the inside of the card.

The same small thistle image was stamped onto the lower left of the envelope front, and I used Stampin’ Blends to color in the image. A piece of coordinating designer series paper was adhered to the envelope flap, and I trimmed the excess paper away from the flap.

A small double bow was tied using white twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack and the bow was adhered just under the thistle flower head on the card front using a Mini Glue Dot. A single Dragonfly Trinket was adhered to the card front, just to the right of the thistle flower.

The beautiful Scottish Thistle from the Beautiful Thistle Bundle makes for a lovely card that would be suitable for male or female. Today’s card is a Thinking of You card but this set would also make great birthday cards, friendship cards or sympathy cards.
