Floral Framelit ~ Friend

Well this is my attempt at CASE’ing a card design from a picture that I saw in the new 2013-2014 Stampin’ Up! catalog.  I actually like the one in the new catalog better because it uses all of the awesome new colors!  That being stated you have probably guessed that I designed this card based on my “retirement” theme for the events I held during the month of May!   

Most of the colors on this card are retiring at the end of May….Bravo Burgundy and Pretty in Pink!  I have learned that many of my fellow demonstrators were not very fond of the Bravo Burgundy color but I found myself using it quite often! So, I bet you are wondering how to make this card?? Of course you are…so let me give you the nitty gritty.

I started out with a 5 x 10 inch piece of bravo burgundy cardstock and folded the 10 inch side in half…this will give you a 5 x 5 inch sized card base. Unfold the card and place it on your big shot cutting pad….using the large floral framelit, cut out the design on the front of your card. Cut a 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 inch piece of whisper white cardstock to use for stamping the daydream medallions.  This will serve as the backdrop for the large floral framelit you just cut out of your card front. Stamp the largest daydream medallion in crumb cake ink onto your white cardstock…then, using your stamp-a-ma-jig, stamp the second largest daydream medallion in the middle of the first one…I used pretty in pink for the color. Once you have completed those steps, emboss the third medallion on a piece of scrap whisper white cardstock and cut it out with the appropriate floral framelit.  I decided to emboss my medallion with pewter embossing powder. Secure the 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 piece of cardstock to the inside of your card…so the images show through the floral “window”…I secured the cardstock with dimensionals to achieve a more layered look. Then embellish!

  1. Thanks Lori! I chose those colors for my card class “retirement” theme. 🙂 I love the framelits and daydream medallion set. Your Christmas card is the one that got me excited about the framelits!
