  • Blushing Bride card base:5-1/2” x 8-1/2”, scored at 4-1/4” then folded on the crease with the Bone Folder plus a scrap about 1” x 1”
  • Smoky Slate: 3-1/2” x 2-1/4”
  • Whisper White: 2” x 2-1/4” and 1-1/2” x 1-1/4”
  • Rose Glimmer Paper: 3-1/4” x 3-1/4”
  • Ribbon: 13”


  1. Using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder, emboss one half of the Blushing Bride card base.
  2. Stamp perfume bottle and flower with Basic Gray ink on Whisper White cardstock. Stamp Blushing Bride inside perfume bottle. Stamp off once with Melon Mambo and stamp flower. Color in leaves with the Old Olive Light Stampin’ Blends marker. Die cut both with your die-cutting machine.
  3. Stamp the perfume bottle again with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Blushing Bride scrap. With Paper Snips cut out the “parfum” center and the box around it. With SNAIL Adhesive, affix to the full perfume bottle as its label.
  4. Stamp the “hello fabulous!” sentiment with Basic Gray ink to right side of your Smoky Slate cardstock. Die cut with the notched rectangle from the Painted Labels Dies so that sentiment is on the right side, leaving room for the perfume bottle. The exclamation point in “fabulous!” should end about ¼” from the edge of the die cut piece.
  5. Using Rose Glimmer Paper die cut the circular swirl from the Painted Labels Dies.
  6. Overlap ribbon so it appears like a big bow. Affix the area where it all crosses with Tear & Tape Adhesive then affix to the card front to the left of center.
  7. Affix the perfume bottle and flower to the sentiment piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Affix this piece to the Rose Glimmer Paper with Mini Glue Dots and so the swirl is popped out from the left side about ¾”.
  8. With Stampin’ Dimensionals, attach the whole center piece on top of the ribbon.

Enjoy the day & HAPPY STAMPING!
