How to Make a Special Moments Card


  • Calypso Coral – 4 ¼” x 11”, score and fold at 5 ½”.
  • Old Olive – 4” x 5 ¼”
  • Basic White – 3 ½” x 4 ¾”, 1” x 2”, 4” x 5 ¼” (inside)


  • Cut a 7” piece of white Baker’s Twine. Color the twine with Calypso Coral Blends marker. Set aside to dry
  • Die-cut Old Olive cardstock with the largest rectangle die in the Color and Contours set. Set aside.
  • Use Daffodil Delight ink with a blending brush to stencil the floral bouquet onto the 3 ½” x 4 ¾” panel of Basic White. TIP: (use old washi tape or painters’ tape to hold paper and stencil in place, lining up on a grid pad)
  • Remove and reposition the corresponding stencil over the yellow flowers. Use a different blending brush to add Calypso Coral ink.
  • Find the stencil with various leaves. Line the leaf sprigs, one at a time, by lining up next to the flowers. Apply Old Olive ink with a third blending brush. TIP: Use tape to cover the nearby stencil openings to avoid brushing ink where you do not want it.
  • Die-cut with the second largest scallop rectangle in Contour Dies.
  • Stamp the sentiment with Old Olive ink on the 1 x 2” scrap and die-cut with the smallest rectangle die in Stitched So Sweetly set. Then, re-apply the die to cut it again to make it shorter.
  • Make a tiny bow with the colored Baker’s Twine. Add to the sentiment with a mine glue dot then dimensional the sentiment as shown.
  • Dimensional the floral panel to the Old Olive panel then glue to the card front as shown.
  • Add the Basic White panel to the inside of the card.
