Stronger than most with Petal Promenade Suite

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which a beautiful encouragement card made with the Petal Promenade Suite! There may come a time when a friend or loved one may be going through a rough time, and what better way to let them know that you are thinking of them, with some words of encouragement, than sending them a heartfelt card. The Petal Promenade Suite is a beautiful suite and perfect for such occasion!

Start with a base layer in Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and then the next layer is this design from the Petal Promenade DSP, cut a 3 ¾” x 5”:

For the rest of the card front, you will use the doily die from Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies to cut out of Champagne Foil Sheet, stamp the sentiment from Beautiful Promenade stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut it out with the smallest oval from the Layering Ovals Thinlits Dies, cut out a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock with the smallest scallop oval from the dies to layer the sentiment on, cut out two of the leaves from Beautiful Layers in Mossy Meadow cardstock, and cut enough Very Vanilla Lace Trim and Fresh Fig Sheer Ribbon to wrap around the front of the DSP:

Layer the Fresh Fig Sheer Ribbon on top of the Very Vanilla Lace Trim and adhere the end pieces to the back of the DSP. Then adhere this piece to the Very Vanilla cardstock base layer:

The oval layers are adhered together, the leaves are adhered to the back of this piece, and then this is adhered to the foil doily piece. To adhere the foil doily to the DSP, I cut a dimensional in half, placing one piece at the top and the other on the bottom, and then adhered to the DSP. By doing this, the ribbon will be in between the dimensionals and the foil doily will stay in place and keep the ribbon in place:

This completed piece is then adhered to a Fresh Fig card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

The inside sentiment is on a 4” x 5 ¼” Very Vanilla cardstock, stamped in Fresh Fig ink. I used the background stamp in Fresh Fig ink along the left side and the flowers in the bottom corner are in Fresh Fig and Mossy Meadow inks, which I used a Sponge Dauber to color the stamp:

Isn’t this a beautiful card that was so easy to make?? Card making shouldn’t just be limited to birthdays or holidays, but for any reason to get you creative!

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
