Stampin’ Up! Petal Park Best Wishes Card

I used the Petal Park Stamp Set, the Sentimental Park Stamp Set and the Sentimental Park Dies along with the new Neutrals 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper to create today’s card. The Petal Park Stamp Set and punch and the Sentimental Park Stamp Set and Dies set will be carrying over into the new 2023-2024 Annual Catalog…good news! But, you can still receive the bundled savings of 10% up until May 1 on each of these sets! The Neutrals 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper will be available on May 2 from the new catalog!

I chose a bold diagonal Blackberry Bliss stripe pattern from the Neutrals 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper pack for my card front. I used the Countryside Corners Dies to die cut a white panel and stamped the large multi-leaf image onto the panel in Granny Apple Green ink. I used Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends to color in the leaves. The dark shade of a Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend was used to splatter ink onto the panel. I then wrapped Linen Thread around the panel several times.

I used the small solid and open flower dies from the Sentimental Park Dies set to cut multiple flowers in both Bubble Bath and Blackberry Bliss. For my focal flowers, I stacked a Blackberry Bliss outline flower onto three of the Bubble Bath solid image flowers. These flowers were adhered to the octagon panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The remaining “outline” flowers were adhered around the panel using liquid glue. The octagon panel was then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the smallest die from the Countryside Corners Dies set to cut out a sentiment label and stamped the “Best Wishes” sentiment from the Sentimental Park Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss ink. The sentiment label was adhered to the card front and I added a double Linen Thread bow over the wrapped thread.

On the inside panel I partially stamped the multi-leaf image onto the top and bottom of the panel, colored in the images using Stampin’ Blends then used a Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend to ink splatter the panel. The panel was adhered to a Blackberry Bliss mat then this unit was adhered to the inside of the card.

The same partial leaf image was stamped onto the envelope flap and colored in. I also added ink splatter to the envelope front. A piece of coordinating designer series paper was adhered to the envelope flap and I trimmed the excess paper away from the flap to finish off the envelope.

Lastly, multiple pink Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins were added to the card front.

Wishing you a wonderful day!
