If you like to make all-occasions cards to have on hand, you’ll love the Flourish Thinlits from Stampin’ Up! It’s super easy to make a striking card with the Flourish die-cuts. Create a background with some texture for interest, use layers to accentuate your color scheme, and voila! You have a handmade card for any occasion: birthday, friendship, thinking of you, even anniversary and sympathy cards! At least for a woman, I don’t think I’d use these dies for a guy.
This card is super simple. The colors are Peekaboo Peach, Rose Red, and Rich Razzleberry. Yum! The background was made with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder, and the little heart in the bottom right corner is from the 2016 In Color Enamel Shapes.
You’ll love the Enamel Shapes, new in the 2016 Annual Catalog. They’re just like Candy Dots, only better, as each color comes in dots, hearts, and stars. They’re available in Metallic Gold and Silver, as well as in Brights, Regals, and Subtles color collections.

If you’re like me, sometimes you need a little embellishment rather than a big bow, button, or tag. I tried some ribbons and twine on this card, but they were either too big or the wrong color. Then I remembered the subtle little Enamel Shapes. It added just the right amount of interest without detracting from the Flourish die-cut.
The biggest challenge with intricate die-cuts is how to adhere them to your cardstock. I created a new video for you that shows some of the options, with the downside of each.
Now you can make quick and easy all-occasions cards with the Flourish Thinlits from Stampin’ Up!
