S oft and pretty thinking of you card using Stampin' Up! products and heat embossing.
Cut cardstock, designer paper, and vellum pieces to the following sizes using a Paper Trimmer:
- card from Petal Pink Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from whisper White Cardstock

- 3-1/2" x 5" from Vellum Cardstock
- 2-1/2" square from Petal Pink Cardstock
- 2" x 3-1/2" from Whisper White Cardstock
Adhere the piece of Peony Garden Designer Paper to the large rectangle of white cardstock.
Pick out the large, open frame die that cuts out a filigree rectangle that is 3-1/8" x 4-5/8" from the Ornate Layers Dies. Put it on top of the vellum rectangle on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Run through the machine. Use the Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip and Take Your Pick to remove the pieces.
Put the vellum rectangle cut out on your work surface upside down so the rectangle is longer horizontally. Put a small amount of adhesive in the lower left corner and upper right corner. Flip the vellum rectangle over so the adhesive is facing down (it should now be in the upper left corner and lower right corner) and adhere it to the center of the matted designer paper rectangle.
Mount the "My thoughts are with you" sentiment from the Prized Peony Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Petal Pink Ink Pad. Stamp it near one end of the horizontal white strip . Leave room to punch it out.
Unlock the Label Me Fancy Punch. Hold it upside down so you can see the punching area. Slide the stamped sentiment into the punch and get it centered in the large, tag punching area. Punch. Leave the punch unlocked. Keep the punched out tag and the remainder of the punched white strip.
Lay the remainder of the punched white strip on one end of the sentiment label punch out so the small round hole is centered over one end of the sentiment label punch out. Use the pencil to mark the hole onto the sentiment label punch out. Repeat on the other side.
Hold the unlocked Label Me Fancy Punch upside down so you can see the punching areas. Slide one end of the sentiment label punch out into the punch and get the small hole punching area centered over the mark you made with the pencil. Punch. Repeat on the other side.
Cut a 6" piece of Silver 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon.
Thread the sentiment label punch out onto the ribbon and get it positioned on the ribbon on the right side. Put some lines of adhesive on the BACK of the sentiment label punch out.
Adhere the ribbon with sentiment punch out threaded on it across the matted designer paper/vellum rectangle so the sentiment label punch out is in the lower right corner of the vellum rectangle just inside the dotted lines. Fold the ends of the ribbon over and secure the ribbon in place on the back with strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backings from the Tear & Tape pieces and add SNAIL to the back of the white rectangle. Adhere the rectangle to the front of the Petal Pink card.
Mount the large peony flower only image from the Prized Peony Set on Block D. Ink it up with the VersaMark Pad. Stamp it in the center of the Petal Pink square.
Lay the stamped peony flower square on top of some Grid Paper in the center. Sprinkle on some White Stampin' Emboss Powder so it covers the stamped image. Tap off excess powder. Return the excess powder to the container to use again later.
Heat the powder with the Heat Tool until it is completely melted (shiny and smooth).
Tip: Use a clothespin to hold the cardstock while using the Heat Tool to avoid burning your fingers.
Pick out the matching, open, peony flower die from the Peony Dies. Put it on top of the stamped and heat embossed peony image so it is centered over the image. Run through the tool.
Adhere the peony flower cut out to the front of the card so it is in the upper left corner of the vellum rectangle. The bottom of the flower will tuck under the ribbon on the card front and the lower right side of the flower will overlap the top left edge of the sentiment label punch out a bit.
Cut a 4" piece of the Silver 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon.
Slide one end of the ribbon under the ribbon already on the card on the left side of the sentiment label punch out. Tie in place with a half knot. Trim the ends.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up 2 different sized pearlescent white gems and 1 small clear gem from a sheet of Elegant Faceted Gems making sure that you get the adhesive backings as well. Adhere them in a rough triangle in the upper right corner of the vellum rectangle.
