Paper Florist Trellis Sympathy Card & Video Tutorial

Paper Florist Trellis

Do you love making floral cards that are stunning? If so, then hold on because you are going to love this one using the Stampin’ Up Paper Florist Dies. No coloring is required unless you want to do some on the inside of the card. Just cut all the flowers and greenery out using the dies and your Cut & Emboss machine. 

Even the trellis is not complicated to assemble and you have a video to watch to see how to do it. Choose your favorite colors and have fun creating what you want. Best of all, the dies go on sale Tuesday, April 9th for half off the list price. Happy Stamping!

Card Directions

  1. Crop all the flowers and greenery using the Painted Florist Dies. Assemble flowers using Mini Glue Dots.
  2. Cut and score all cardstock and papers as listed under Cutting Directions below.
  3. Fold the Basic White Thick Card Base in half on the score line, and burnish it with a Bone Folder.
  4. Attach 2 vertical 3/8” x 3-1/2” strips to the lower portion on the card front 3/4” in from each side with Glue Dots.
  5. Attach the six 4-1/4” x 3/8” vertical strips to the card base with Glue Dots, leaving 1/4” space between each strip. I like to start at the bottom and work up.
  6. Arrange the flowers and greenery to see how you want them to lay out, and adhere with Glue Dots. (Note – make sure your Glue Dots adhere directly to the trellis and will not stick to the inside of the card. Try patting your Embossing Buddy to the back side of the trellis to remove any stickiness).
  7. Stamp greeting in Night of Navy Ink onto 2-3/4” x 1-1/2” Basic White Cardstock. Crop with the smallest Deckled Rectangle Die, and adhere to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  8. Embellish with Adhesive-Backed Shiny Sequins or Blooming Pearls.
  9. The inside of the card was finished by stamping the sentiment in Night of Navy Ink onto Basic White Cardstock. Greenery was stamped in Black Memento Ink, colored with Stampin’ Blends, and then adhered to the inside of the card.
  10. Emboss Lemon Lolly Cardstock with the Layered Florals 3D Embossing Folder, and adhere to the Envelope flap with Liquid Glue.
