Today I want to share with you a card I created using products from the Peony Garden Suite. This is a birthday card for my very dear friend, neighbor and crafty team member. Deby has the most beautiful flower gardens, so of course this set was perfect!
Here is the card, using the Prized Peony Bundle, the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper and of course the 1/4″ Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon. I did use some of the Petal Pink Organdy Ribbon to offset the Shimmer ribbon. All supplies used will be listed below for your to add to your shopping cart!
The background technique is the #scrappystriptechnique that was launched by Bruno Bertucci. This technique is very simple yet adds a stunning background to your project. Starting with a Petal Pink A2 cardbase, I cut the DSP into 1.5″ x 4″ strips and them cut them at varying angles using my mini-trimmer. Seriously, NO MEASURING NEEDED. I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere them to a remnant piece of Gray Granite cardstock that measures 3″ x 5″. After the strips are adhered and the glue is dry, trim excess edges using a pair of Snips. Matte the strip piece to onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock measuring 3 1/8″ x 5 1/8″. Then add to the card base.
The shaded peony was die cut from Whisper White card stock and using a sponge dauber with Petal Pink ink, lightly blush the edges of the petals. Assemble the peony matching the bottom curves, so easy! The leaves were cut from scrap pieces of Gray Granite and Basic Gray.
The little “happy birthday” sentiment is from the Posted for You stamp set.

I have officially taken a break from sewing face masks and am back creating in my happy place. Today I would like to share with you a card named “Coming Up Daisies”.
