Simple Ornate Garden Card

Hello and welcome to Part 4 of my Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite Showcase. If you have missed the previous instalments you can find them here… part 1, 2 and 3.

If you would prefer to watch me create the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

It’s very tempting with this Suite to do as the name suggests and create ‘ornate’ projects. However, I wanted to showcase something simpler and was inspired by the latest CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge. You can find out more about these challenges, see the other entries and join in by clicking the link above. The sketch for the latest challenge is shown below…

I immediately thought about using strips of Designer Series Paper (DSP) as the focal point of my project…

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Old Olive cardstock and this is followed by a layer of Whisper White cardstock.

I cut three different lengths from three different sheets of the Ornate Garden DSP and adhered them to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set and is stamped in Old Olive ink directly on to the card front.

This is such a simple card but I love the clean, fresh look. If you have any questions or comments please leave them below or email me at

Next time…

Next month my Suite Showcase will be replaced by a Retiring Product Showcase! Normal service will be resumed in June!
