The more I use the products in the Flowers For Every Season Suite, the more I love them. I have wanted to use the gingham ribbon since the first time I saw it. Because Stampin Up does such a great job of color coordination, everything in the Suite goes together so well.

Card Base: Cut Bumblebee 8 ½ X 11 paper in half widthwise. You now have two pieces 8 ½ X 5 ½ . Fold one of the pieces in half lengthwise for your card front. The card front now measures 4 ¼ X 5 ½.

Card Mat: Cut Just Jade paper 4 X 5 ¼. (Tip: die cut the second smallest stitched circle from this mat before assembling card front - see picture).

Card Front: Cut floral print paper 3 7/8 X 5 ⅛. Attach floral print card front to Just Jade card mat.

Cut 6 inches of the white and gingham ribbons. Attach the gingham ribbon to white ribbon (I used tear & tape). Attach these ribbons1 inch from the bottom of the card front/card mat. (I used tear & tape to attach to card front).

Attach card front to Bumblebee card base.

Stamp sentiment on Whisper White with Just Jade ink. Punch out with 1 ½ inch circle punch. Attach this circle to Just Jade stitched circle die cut from the card mat. Attach these circles to card front over ribbon. Attach 3 Bumblebee enamel dots.

That’s it; you have finished your card front. Wasn’t that easy? For the inside of your card, cut a piece of Whisper White 4 X 5 ¼. Stamp a sentiment or write a note before attaching this piece inside your card.
