Today’s post is a real ingenious and clever gift card holder that my friend and customer Sheri made me for my birthday. It is made from a Stampin Up Treat Bagthat was folded to create a double pocket holder- One for the gift card and the other for the message. Sheri used my favorite paper(Botanical Garden DSP) and the Botanical Builder Framelits that are no longer available. Loved it and the gift card was a real treat!

I wanted to make a card to showcase all the new In colors (2017-2019) from Stampin Up: Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, and Tranquil Tide. I used the now retired Botanical Blooms stamp set and coordinating Botanical Builder Framelits to make a bunch of flowers and leaves. I used the fabulous new Wood Textures DSP #144177 as the background and added 2 pieces of 5/8 inch Burlap ribbon #141487 to anchor the flowers to. The sentiment is from the Beautiful You #143004 stamp set to create this bright and beautiful card.
I made this card before the all new Detailed Floral Thinlits came out. It would have been much easier then the way I did mine using the Bloomin Heart Thinlits #140621. To create the lacy background, I cut 4 hearts from the Bloomin Heart Thinlits and then overlayed them on a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock. I stamped the sentiment using the now retired Perfect Pennant stampset and mounted it on Wisteria cardstock. I finished by adding a bouquet of flowers cut using the Botanical Builder Framelits #140625 and the coordinating Botanical Blooms #140757 stamp set.
I love everything about today’s post. The natural color scheme that Cammoie used for this card is on trend and lends itself perfectly with the beautiful Botanical Blooms #140757 stamp set and the coordinating Botanical Builder Framelits #140625. I am so happy Stampin Up carried over both of these items in the all new 2016-2017 annual catalog.
I am so sad that the Shine On DSP #140579 is not being carried over from the Stampin Up Occasions catalog. It is so beautiful because the designs are printed on Kraft paper with silver foil designs on one side. The catalog images really don’t do this paper justice. I used the non shiny piece for the background layer and then added a piece of gold satin ribbon I then cut flower and leaves from the Stampin Up Botanical Builder Framelits #140625 and added pearls to the center. The sentiment is stamped from the Rose Wonder #140619 stamp set and then cut using the coordinating Rose Garden Thinlit #140619.
Today’s card is full of details that are sure to pack a punch and a BIG wow factor. Cammie started with a Real Red cardstock and then layered a piece of the Stampin Up Go Wild DSP #138441. She stamped the sentiment from the Stampin Up A Dozen Thoughts #131056 stamp set. The gorgeous floral accent is cut from the Botanical Builder Framelits and the leaves were stamped with the coordinating Botanical Blooms stamp set #140757 prior to cutting the the leaves with the Botanical Builder Framelits. Cammie added pearls on each petal of the center and a faceted rhinestone to produce a stunning card.
