Welcome to the Cardz 4 Galz two-week challenge.  I am the host for #198 and chose Flowers for a Friend or Flowers for Mother’s Day, which is in a couple of weeks in the U.S.  When you finish here, I hope you will visit the challenge site to see the cards from the rest of the design team.  I’m always fascinated by the variety of projects created by my fellow design team members.  I look forward to seeing what you create and upload to our challenge gallery!

I’ve made my card for a dear friend who is having surgery next week.  She’s much more of a clean and simple person, so this card is perfect for her.

Here’s my card:


Clean and Simple:

I used the Dainty Delight stamp and die set for this card.  The DSP was the coordinating paper from the Sale-a-Bration in the beginning of this year.  It’s beautiful and I need to use it more often.


  • The Rich Razzleberry base measures 4-1/4 by 11 inches, scored at 5-1./2 inches to create a tent fold card.
  • The DSP background measures 4-1/8 by 5-3/8 inches.
  • Trim a piece of DSP to 6 by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap.
  • Punch a 1-inch circle from coordinating DSP for the envelope seal.
  • After stamping the floral spray using Momento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock, I cropped it using one of the Dainty Delight dies.
  • Stamp the sentiment in black ink on white cardstock. Crop it using one of the deckled rectangle dies.
  • Trim a piece of white cardstock to 4 by 5-1/4 inches for the inside panel.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the inside.
  • Add a floral spray to the bottom left side of the white panel and color.
  • I also cropped the curved branch and leaves piece from the die set from Old Olive cardstock..
  • Color the floral spray using the blends combos for Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, and Petal Pink.
  • Tie a length of Old Olive ribbon around the DSP.
  • Adhere the DSP, using dimensionals.
  • Adhere the floral spray and branch using multipurpose liquid glue.
  • Add dimensionals under the sentiment and adhere under the ribbon.
  • Adhere the inside panel to the base using multipurpose liquid adhesive.
  • With that, I’d finished this coordinated set of the card, envelope, and envelope seal.

Have a Peachy Day!
