WOW! Video.  Build a Beautiful Zinnia with Me!

Create a Gratitude Card using the Simply Zinnia Bundle from Stampin' Up! Card by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

The Simply Zinnia dies (one of My Favorite Things) are at the heart of this card for the layered flower, stem and leaves.  I layered the flower with an ombre of color (bottom to top) in Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Sweet Sorbet (retiring – get it NOW) and Petal Pink.  Want to build this flower with me?  Watch my latest 1 Minute to WOW!

WHAT I LOVE! Today’s zinnia card takes dimension to a new level, literally!  I love how the deckled layers separated by Stampin’ Dimensionals give a really rich, sophisticated look in white on white.  It looks très chic (reminds me of a wedding invitation) when you add a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of vellum on top to protect it in the mail.

  • Old Olive – Leave Veins (2)
  • Poppy Parade – Solid Zinnia Flower

POP OF PERSONALITY! Embellish the sentiment and zinnia flower center with 3 (each) Gold Festive Pearls. TIP: I love using vellum to protect the fronts of my cards in the mail. Looks elegant, too!

PERFECT POLISH! Adhere the 5 3/4 x 2 1/4 Flowering Zinnia Designer Series Paper to the Basic White Medium envelope flap with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. IMPORTANT: Add glue to the flap first, not the Textured Specialty Paper. Center and line up the Basic Borders curved edge die, tape to secure (Post-It Tape) and crop with a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard). Watch my Stampin’ Pretty WOW Video here.
