Demonstrator Training Blog Hop - December Customer Thank you

I'm excited to be training with Bruno and Kylie again this year and participating in our monthly Blog Hop with amazing Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world. The purpose of the group is for the group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that are part of the share ideas and to learn from each help us in our Stampin' Up! Business. Our theme for our blog hop each month is "Thank You" and I've created this beautiful card using the new Stampin' Up! Simply Citrus Bundle from the upcoming 2023 January to April Mini Catalogue.

This is one of my favourite new bundles!  It's a hybrid embossing folder which means that you can cut and emboss using the dies and embossing folder!  Love it!

Isn't this a pretty card!  Anyone who places an order in December will receive one of these cards in the mail!  I hope they love it as much as I do!


  1. Cut Thick Basic White cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4".  Fold and burnish on scoreline with Bone Folder to form card base.
  2. Cut Daffodil Delight cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Cut Mango Melody cardstock 3 3/4" x. 5"
  4. Stamp flowers randomly on Mango Melody cardstock using Mango Melody ink

  6. Adhere to Daffodil Delight cardstock
  7. Wrap ribbon around cardstock and tie a bow on left side
  8. Adhere to card base
  9. Stamp fruit on Basic White cardstock using Mango Melody ink for the outline and Daffodil Delight for the inside of the fruit.
  10. Cut and emboss using Dies and embossing folder

  16. Stamp flowers in the bottom right corner on the inside of the card using Mango Melody ink
  17. Add Wink of Stella to the fruit (I always do this last as it take a little time to dry).
