I’m excited that Stampin’ Up released the Ornate Garden Suite early so we could use it for Spring, Easter, and Mother’s Days cards or any occasion for that matter! This card uses the Ornate Style stamp set and Ornate Layers Dies to create a simple but pretty card using just stamps, ink and dies! This card uses only the small, single flower from the Ornate Style stamp set–imagine what can be done with the larger flower image! I will be showing more of this Suite here and on my other social media links!
The first step is to die cut the whisper white frame and terracotta tile rectangle from the Ornate Layers die set as shown in Figure 1. Other die cuts include an Whisper White oval and a Terracotta layering stitched oval for the sentiment.
The rest of the steps are straight forward. Layer the white lace rectangle onto a Terracotta card base. Use the Detailed Trio punch to round the corners on the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series patterned paper then layer onto the white rectangle. Next layer the Terracotta rectangle on top of the patterned paper. Layer the ovals together and stamp the sentiment and the small flower from the Ornate Style stamp set on the white oval. Color in the flower with blends and then apply the oval to the card using dimensionals. Tie a bow and add to the card.
Give to your favorite person to brighten their day!

This card base was inspirational when Easter rolled around. The bunny and the squirrel from Fabled Friends was looking for a home and this card base was perfect! They look like they are sitting in a field of flowers!
