I LOVE the color combination and had a lot of fun designing this card!
I used the new Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper in the Stampin' Up 2015-2016 Annual Catalog on page 144. I die cut the two pieces of DSP with the Scalloped square in the SU Square Framelits Dies.
I made a black banner piece for behind the sentiment using the new SU Triple Banner Punch to flag the ends. This punch cuts banner ends in 1", 1 1/2" and 2" widths and is on my FAVE list. No more hand cutting banner ends. Yay!!!
The sentiment was stamped in SU's Black Memento Ink using the You're in my Thoughts stamp found in the SU Best Thoughts stamp set. I then die cut it out using the SU Lots of Labels Framelits Dies and adhered it with SU Stampin' Dimensionals.
The flowers are from a Retired SU stamp set called Petals Potpourri. I LOVE this stamp set and can't believe that SU retired it. The flower centers are snipped from a SU Calypso Coral Pom Pom trim which is also retired. There is a new Real Red Pom Pom Trim in the new SU 2015 Holiday catalog available to purchase Sept. 1st. This new trim will be so much fun to use for Christmas cards and projects. The SU Bird Builder Punch was used to punch the leaves that are tucked behind the flowers with some Multi-Purpose Mono Glue.
Another of my FAVE's in the SU Annual Catalog is the Silver and Gold Metallic Threads. I swirled the Gold Metallic Thread behind each flower and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals. It's hard to see in the picture; but, it is so gorgeous in person. There will also be a new Silver and a new Gold Cording in the SU 2015 Holiday Catalog. It's fabulous to use for bow's and for Christmas Tags. It just ties so nice and neat.
