Prized Peony Friendship

Birthday Card

This is an easy card to make but you need to have the right supplies…here is a list of what you’ll need to make this card:

Gray Granite Card Stock                                       
Whisper White Card Stock
Petal Pink Card Stock                                          
Granny Apple Green Card Stock
Pear Pizzazz Card Stock                                       
Prized Peony Stamp Set
Band Together Stamp Set                                    
Peony Garden Designer Series Paper
Gray Granite Satin Ribbon                                  
Gray Granite Stamp Pad
Petal Pink Stamp Pad
Petal Pink Blends                                                   
Hippo and Friends Dies
Peony Dies

Card Face:      

  • Cut card stock Gray Granite 5 ½ x 8 ½ and score at 4 ¼
  • Cut Whisper White card stock 4 x 5 ¼ and scallop the edge with the die from Hippo & Friends Dies.  
  • Cut print DSP 3 5/8  x 5 and adhere all of the liners to the card face with snail.
  •      From a piece of Whisper White Card Stock, stamp the greeting as shown from the Prized Peony stamp set with Gray Granite ink and cut out with the die from Hippo and Friends in the rectangular shape.
  • Cut out the four pieces that make up the Peony flower from the die set. Each piece fits INTO each other.  Color with a dauber in Petal Pink ink and use the Petal Pink blends to color in the flower.  Then take your bone folder and curl the ends of the flower petals so they don’t lie flat against each other.  They should show some life and dimension on the face of the card.  Once colored, attach them together using snail.   
  • Cut out 3 leaf patterns from the Solid and partial leaf dies.  The partial leaf die cuts should be from Granny Apple Green card stock and the main leaf structure should be cut from Pear Pizzazz card stock.  Once cut, glue patterns together and add to the back or sides of the peony flower.
  •       Cut two labels from Petal Pink card stock and Gray Granite card stock.  Trim the granite one so that it shows behind the flower and also shows part of the Petal Pink label.  This label is from Hippo & Friends dies.
  • Split the Gray Granite label in two pieces and arrange behind the peony flower and within the borders of the Petal Pink label.  Attach the labels together with snail and attach the peony flower and the leaves with dimensionals.  
  • Attach the flower and leaves to the granite and petal pink labels and attach the labels to the front of the card with dimensionals.   Attach the greeting on white card stock to the bottom of the card face with dimensionals.
  •      Add a bow made from the Gray Granite satin ribbon with glue dots.

  •         On Whisper White card stock, stamp the inside greeting “Wishing You a Happy Birthday” from the Band Together stamp set with Gray Granite ink.  Stamp a couple of the small peony flower images to the lower right of the card.  Add leaves stamped in Pear Pizzazz.  Color the flowers in with the ink on a dauber in Petal Pink ink and add color with the Petal Pink Blends.
  •         Attach a strip of DSP, 1 x 4, to the lower edge of the card.  In the middle cut a strip of petal pink card stock ½ x 4.  Attach to the middle of the DSP and the card is complete.
