Fitting Florets Happy Birthday Card. Touches of Ink Blog Hop November 2022

 Good Evening Everyone

Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all well.

Today I'm blog hopping with the fabulous Touches of Ink ladies. Each month we get together a hop to share our creations. We don't have a set theme as such, we are just encouraged to focus within a Suite or use a coordinating bundle.

I could not resist sharing a Project using the Fitting Florets Suite. This suite is absolutely gorgeous - I love everything about it. It will, in part, feature in our new upcoming Mini catalogue out in January - but for now we can get our hands on Stamp sets and dies, and additional seasonal stamp set, DSP and swirl embellishments. feel free to contact me if you would like more information on the suite - Once you have been through the hop!

But first, I best get on with sharing my card. I have used the Framed Florets Stamp Set and Dies as well as some of the beautiful DSP. It's a simple layout, and easy to create but thanks to Stampin' Up and their amazing products it came together in no time and looks pretty fabulous - if I do say so myself! haha


Night of Navy Card Stock

1pc - 4 1/8" x 11 3/4". scored at 5 7/8"

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

1pc - scrap

Polished Pink Card Stock

1pc - scrap

Fitting Florets DSP

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

1pc - approx 1/2" wide

2pc - fussy cut flowers


Take the Night of Navy Card Stock and fold along the score line to create your card base, adding the basic white panel to the inside.

Bring in your Mini Cut and Emboss Machine and cut out the Oval Frame in both Polished Pink and Basic White. Keep the Polished pink outer frame and the Basic White centre. 

Stamp the Sentiment in Night of Navy ink into the centre of the oval.

Now, it's just a case of building up your design.

Add the thin strip of DSP across the centre of the larger panel of DSP. trimming off any overhanging edges. Glue this to the card front.

Pop some liquid glue to the bak of the Polished pink frame and again, add to the centre of the card front. I placed the white oval (without glue) into the centre to help me line it up.

Add some dimensionals onto the back of the white oval and place it into the centre of the polished pink frame.

Arrange the two fussy cut floral clusters around the sentiment, adhering down with dimensionals. 

I hope you have enjoyed my card today, please do continue through the hop for lots more crafty inspiration from these very talented ladies. Melanie is up, she please do check out her blog first.
