Thanks for joining the Color Fusers blog hop where I am sharing a project made with the Around the Bend bundle and the Sale-a-bration 2023 Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper.

The Around the Bend Bundle is new from the January – April 2023 Mini Catalog which launches January 5th. New catalog launches are always so exciting! And the annual Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration promotion starts next week, too! Who doesn’t like to earn free gifts with purchase?!

I love how the dies in this bundle allow you to easily make creative edges and card fronts on your projects. This set has different options, and the stamps coordinate perfectly to work with the card edge. On this project, notice how the dots and strip align perfectly with the die cut edge!

This decorative border is accented by adding a layer of designer series paper on the inside of the card. Not only does it help the scalloped edge pop, but it showcases this beautiful Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper. This paper collection can be earned as a gift with purchase starting January 5th.

In addition to the edge dies, this die set has awesome accent pieces. I created this flowers using a floral die with Rich Razzleberry cardstock, and one of the leaf dies with Designer Series Paper.

To Create This Card:

  • make a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Thick Basic White card base scored at 4 1/4″
  • cut a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ layer of designer series paper for inside the card
  • die cut a flower and leaves from scraps of cardstock and designer series paper

Die cut a decorative front edge using the Around the Bend dies. Stamp coordinating edge in Versamark ink, and heat emboss with Gold Embossing Powder. Die cut flower with Rich Razzleberry cardstock, and leaves from designer series paper. Add a large gold sequin for flower center, and top with a gold cord bow. Scatter gold sequins around flower. Bend sentiment stamp to coordinate with embossed edge, and stamp sentiment in Granny Apple Green ink.

Thank You
