Flourish Filigree Simple Thank You Card

Create a simple thank you card with Stampin Up Flourish Filigree Stamp Set - Mary Fish StampinUp Ideas

The Flourish Filigree stamp set (Stampin’ Up! 2018 Holiday Catalog, p. 41) deserves to be noticed.  It offers a beautiful filigree image and sentiments that work for year round thank yous, Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

I loved throwing Melon Mambo in with Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede for a chic, modern look on today’s card.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base using Stampin’ Up! Thick Whisper card stock and the Stampin’ Trimmer.  Layer and adhere a 1 1/2 (part will be covered) by 5 1/4 stripe pattern from Brights 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper on the left side.  

Using the Stamparatus stamp positioning tool for best results (why you want a Stamparatus here),  stamp the large filigree image from Flourish Filigree stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a 3 1/4 x 5 1/4 piece of Whisper White card stock.

Wrap the filigree layer with Linen Thread and tie in a bow.  Adhere to the right side of the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the Stamparatus, stamp the “thankful” sentiment from Flourish Filigree stamp set twice in Soft Suede ink – first on Melon Mambo card stock and second on Granny Apple Green card stock (approx. 3″ wide).

Center and crop the Melon Mambo sentiment with the Pretty Label Punch.  Carefully trim the word “thankful” from the Granny Apple Green sentiment using scissors or the Stampin’ Trimmer.  Center the “thankful” sentiment and crop with the flagged ends banner from Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies, the Big Shot and the Magnetic Platform. 

TIP:  The Granny Apple “thankful” is not as high as the top to bottom opening of the banner die but crops the ends perfectly.

Adhere “thankful” with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the center of the Melon Mambo sentiment.  Adhere the Melon Mambo sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the center of the large filigree image.

For the perfect pop of personality, add three self-adhesive and coordinating Melon Mambo Glitter Enamel Dots as shown.  

Coordinating inside & outside sentiments!  Using the Stamparatus, stamp the interior of the card base with the friendship sentiment from Flourish Filigree stamp set in Soft Suede ink.

  1. Gorgeous layout and color combination. I love how you’ve positioned this emblem on its side – <3

  2. What a lovely card, Mary. I love this stamp set and it is near the top of my wish list. It reminds me of a stamp set I has intended to buy a few years ago but forgot. I believe with filigree stamp was a word stamp that “Heartfelt”. I saved it somewhere but of course, cannot find it at this moment. Your card is truly beautiful and will serve as wonderful inspiration when I get the set. Thank you for sharing so kindly of your beautiful cards.
