Card Swap Sunday - Petal Passion Suite

It's Card Swap Sunday, the day I share a card I've created for a swap or received in a swap.  Today I'm sharing a card I received using the Petal Passion Suite of products.

Card Swap Sunday Petal Passion 4

I love how the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper has been used in this unique way.  It's like a spotlight technique but instead of with stamps it's with the patterned paper.  The Petal Palette Stamp Set and Petals & More Thinlits Dies are from the Occasions catalogue. Both are going to be carried forward to the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue BUT they will no longer be bundled.  Bundled products save you 10% and in this case that's a savings of $11.25!

Card Swap Sunday Petal Passion 5

The flowers are stamped in Archival Black ink and coloured with the Stampin' Blends (which will be back with even more colours in June!). I love how the images can be cut out with the Petals & More Thinlits Dies so no fussy cutting is necessary. Fussy cutting means hand cutting with Paper Snips.

Here's how to make today's card:


  • Whisper White Thick - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"
  • Whisper White -  4" x 4"; 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"; 3 1/4" x 1"
  • Petal Passion Designer Series Paper: 5 1/4" x 4"; 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"


  1. Score the Whisper White Thick cardstock at 4 1/4" to form card base.
  2. Glue the Designer Series Paper to the front of the card.
  3. Cut out a 3 1/4" circle from the 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" Whisper White cardstock with the Layering Circle Framelits using the Big Shot.
  4. Cut out a 3" circle from the DSP with the Layering Circle framelits and glue to the Whisper White cardstock.
  5. Pop up both circles on the right side of the card with Stampin' DImensionals.
  6. Stamp the flower images in Tuxedo Black Ink on the 4" x 4" Whisper White piece, colour with Stampin' Blends and cut out with coordinating framelits.
  7. Pop up on the card as shown in the picture on the circles.
  8. Stamp the sentiment on the 3 1/4" x 1" Whisper White in Tuxedo Black and cut out with framelit.
  9. Pop up the sentiment to the lower left of the circle with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  10. Add a Rhinestone to each side of the sentiment label.
