Softly Sophisticated for Any Occasion

stampin' up! softly sophisticated bundle hello there card with starry sky embossed background and red ribbon behind red flowers

In Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-a-Bration 2024 catalog, the Softly Sophisticated bundle is my favorite offering! It requires a $100 purchase to earn it for free, but it will be money well spent. The versatility of both the stamp set and the embossing folder will have you turning to it all year round.

I love that the flowers are 2-step stamps, meaning that you stamp the leaves/stems and the flowers separately. The flowers line up perfectly within the leaves/stems, and it’s easy to see where they go as the stamps are photopolymer, allowing you to see through them.

As for the embossing folder, you’ll find that you can use it as an accent or background on just about any card. I love using it with white cardstock to add subtle texture to a background. (I shared one in my Quick Class recently).

Below is a tutorial for the card above. I feature cards like these in my virtual and in-person classes. For info about my upcoming in-person and virtual classes, check out my class descriptions here and my calendar here. I hope to see you at a class sometime soon, but you can always find ideas here on my blog as well as on Facebook and Instagram.
