My stamp group had a challenge recently where I was sent the designer series paper and Ornate Layers die-cut. We were to make a card using these pieces, and I found it super satisfying to create my card!

Sometimes it helps to limit yourself to just a few choice supplies, and expand out.

Originally I wasn’t super excited about the Ornate Garden suite — I know, it’s very pretty but I couldn’t figure out what I would make with it. But now that I had a piece of the DSP in my hands, that all changed and I’m falling in love with it.

Have you ever had that happen? Maybe seeing it in person and getting to work with it confirms how great some supplies can be.

See below for how to make this card using the Ornate Garden DSP and die bundle.


Recipe for an Ornate Garden Vellum Card

Cut your paper:

  • Whisper White: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. Don’t fold yet!
  • Mint Macaron: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/4″.
  • Vellum: 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″.
  • Designer Series Paper: 5″ x 3 3/4″. Cut the flowers apart. I used an X-acto knife because this paper is fairly detailed, but scissors will work well too.

Create the Flap Layers:

  • Glue your flowers to opposite sides of the Mint Macaron.

  • Cut left side of Mint Macaron at the flowers. Cut right side with the flowers on Mint Macaron to 4″.

  • Glue left side flowers to Vellum, and then adhere this whole flap layer to the RIGHT side of the unfolded White card base. Ensure the most narrow edge of the DSP is flush with the white edge.

Score your Card Base:

  • Score at the Vellum. Depending on your DSP and how your cut it, the score line should be between 1″ and 2″.
  • Next, measure 4 1/4″ from your first score line and score your second line.
  • Now that you have your card base scored, glue your green layer to the middle flap of your cardbase against the edge. Trim to be flush with the white cardstock.
