Peony Garden Thank You Card & How To Make The 3D Flower!

Stampin' Up! Prized Peony Stamp Set & Peony Dies


Do you want to know how to assemble the 3D flower that I've featured on my cards today? Find out how by watching my video!


These cards were inspired by a previous project of mine - if you haven't seen this project you can check it out here.

The Prized Peony Bundle is such a great set to have in your stash - did you know if you purchase the Prized Peony stamp set and Peony dies as a bundle you can save 10%!

For this card I have predominately used the colour Petal Pink, adding accents of Basic Gray and Whisper White. 

Did you know you can heat emboss onto the Stampin' Up! foil sheets? Well you totally can and it looks great!

I stamped the 'Love and thanks to a dear friend' sentiment from the Prized Peony stamp set in Versamark Ink onto the Silver Foil sheet. I then added white embossing powder and used my heat tool to heat emboss it. 

Just make sure you use your embossing buddy before stamping! After the heat embossing has set, you can carefully wipe the foil sheet with a baby wipe to remove the powder residue from your embossing buddy.

For this card, I've mainly used Gray Granite and have added elements of Basic Black, Whisper White and Champagne Foil sheets.

Stampin' Up! added Gray Granite into the colour pool a few years ago. I really wasn't sure we needed another grey colour in addition to Smoky Slate and Basic Gray, but they were totally right - they know their stuff! It's a beautiful subtle, classy colour that pairs perfectly with the Champagne foil sheets.

Blushing Bride is my second favourite Stampin' Up! colour (right behind Pool Party). Whilst this colour does not feature in the Peony Garden suite, I was able to pair this colour with the Basic Gray patterned DSP. I've also used Basic Gray and Whisper White cardstock and the Silver Foil sheets again.

If you have the Peony Garden DSP, why not try mixing it with colours that do not feature in the suite?
