This card features the Stampin Up Field Flower stamp set. It’s so pretty! I needed another card for my Stamp Camp so I turned to my handy Stampin Up catalog for ideas and inspiration. As I was flipping through I saw this card. I decided to give it a try. For the most part I C.A.S.E.D. (copy and share everything) it as is; however, I’ll share with you a couple changes to make it my own.
The base of my card is actually chocolate chip. I also used whisper white and primrose petals. To make the two tone primrose petals flowers I inked up my flower and stamped it off and then onto my good card stock. I did the same technique with the lighter flower. The only difference is I stamped the flower off a couple more times before stamping it on my card stock. I used lucky limeade for the stem… Stampin it off first. I used early espresso for my So Sorry. After trying my sentiment various ways I ended up liking this way the best. With the “you’ve been ill” in primrose petals. I cut the sentiment and popped it up for interest.
The inside is my favorite part of my Stampin Up Field Flowers get well card. I tried all sizes of tissue boxes. I ended up really liking this one. 3″x 5″. You score the long side or 5″ side at 1″, 2-1/2″, and 3-1/2″. After I scored my card stock I stamped it with primrose petals. After you fold and prep your score line you must punch the hole for your tissue first. The punch doesn’t reach far enough to center your hole… so I fold a 1″ side on top of the 1-1/2″ side center and punch the top of your tissue box.
Glue two sides of your tissue box in your card so the your decorative punch section is on top and the other punched piece is against the top flap of the card. Add your tissue and you have an adorable Kleenex box inside your “Get Well” card.
That’s it! Thanks for stopping by. Have a blessed day and shine bright!

You do not say what size to cut your card and also what size is the white card stock. I may have missed it. I am 67 and just starting out in the card making world and I need all the help I can get lol. Thank you for a wonderful tutorial.
Hi Brandy, I am all the way over in the UK and have just recently become a Stampin Up demonstrator, you creativity really inspires me and I have been busy making this for my first class. Thank you for sharing your inspiration. Ps I love the tissue box so cute. X
Hello Brandy… I found this card by looking up card tutorials w/ stampin up. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A CUTER CARD! I AM ALWAYS IN AWE OF PEOPLE WHO CAN COME UP WITH THING S LIKE THAT ON THE FLY,( the tissue box part). Thank you. I got the chance to look at a few other cards that you made and put onto the brandy’s cards website, when looking for measurements. MAN WAS I IMPRESSED. I have a question and would appreciate an honest answer…. i.have a demonstrator currently, so i probably won’t be purchasing from you,but would it be alright if i still read your blog, ( as sometimes some people have solutions or easier ways to do things),and your brandy”s cards site. Would you mind? I so
I will u.derstand. BLESS YOU. lisa
Thank you for sharing your tissue box tutorial! I just made the card and have a little tip for those (like me) that are bothered by the back of the box that is partly punched: just cut a matching strip of cardstock at 15/16″ x 3″ and adhere to the 1″ box back! It totally disguises where the was so if the tissue is removed the box looks complete. I love this card and your personality shines through on your videos! 🙂 Laura
I love this idea, it is really cute and considerate. Thanks for sharing it sure makes it easy when someone CASE the projects they make, so thanks for sharing. I was just wondering what size punch are you using for the kleenex box. Thanks.
Thank you for dropping by. I used the Stampin Up Scallop Oval to punch out the oval where you pull your tissue from. Hope that helps! Thanks again for stopping by. Have a great day!
Brandy, this is too cute, I cased it for my Friday group and will be sure and give you credit. I love watching your videos. Where did you find your paper holder? Thanks for sharing your designs they are great.
Awesome! I am so excited to know that you enjoyed my project. Yes, CASE it and have lots of fun. Share the Love right! My paper holders… for my card stock. I purchased the slat board from Lowes and the 12 X 12 Acrylic holders are from Dynamic Displays. Happy Stampin’! Brandy
I love, love, love your tutorials! I teach a class here in Mansfield, Ohio at a local Hobby Lobby and we made this card! It was a hit!! I didn’t have an oval punch, so I had to improvise, but it turned out really cute. I have a couple of aunts that have had the flu, so one night I made eight of these cards, sent each aunt one, sold one, and kept the rest for future use.
Thank you so much for sharing your talents! You are a delight to watch and I learn so much from you. I wish I lived closer so that I could attend a Stamp Camp. I think they would be so much fun! Maybe someday……..
God’s blessings to you, Mary Jo
I love the card you did. Field Flowers W/ Tissue Box. So cute. Thanks. Can you please direct me to where on the website I will find the actual written directions. Your video is so good! Keep up the nice work! Mary
OH MY GOODNESS! That is the cutest card ever! I love it. i will be using your style as a sample for one i MUST now do! LOL – thanks!!
WOW…you continue to amaze! I am trying this today after work! This is an awesome card! I wish I lived closer to you so I could make it to your stamp camps. (I live in WV).
Cute, cute, Thanks for putting the tuturial on, it made the card super easy to make. It came out adorable. I have a cuttlebug and a scalloped oval which made the center of the kleenix box super easy. Thanks again, love your cards.
This is DARLING card, and just the right time of year! Thanks so much for sharing! Video is good as well.
I love this card. thanks for sharing & doing the video!!!
Beautiful card! I saw it in the demo magazine. I love what you did to the inside! I will definitely make a few.
Can I share a tip with the Baker’s Twine and buttons? Get some of those plastic floss threaders, they look like sewing needles with a large eye – the ones those with braces use (GUM® Eez-Thru® Floss Threaders – can be found with regular dental floss). Use the flosser as a needle. You can put Baker’s Twine through EVERYTHING using those flossers and save yourself a TON of frustration. My customers went crazy when I showed them that tip.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful card!
I love the tip!!! You rock!!! Thanks so much for sharing 😉 Have a great day! Brandy
This is adorable!
I love this! I’ll have to give it a try at some point. 😉
Just love your website and your ideas. This is an adorable one. But I need to see the tisue box done on a video. I just don’t get it. I see your comment that you made a video but I cannot find the link. Have you posted it yet?
The tissue box was very easy to make. Initially I used the scallop punch but the paper got tore when it was coming out of the punch so I used the regular punch. I live in Hope Mills, NC.
This is fabulous – how innovative and special – thank you for sharing all of this card!
Thanks for stopping by and for leaving such a kind comment. I sincerely appreciate your feedback and am so glad to know you enjoy it. I taped the video to go along with it today! I’ll post it soon. Hugs, Brandy
Sooo cute! I’m still a little fuddled on the tissue box inside. I guess I’m more of a visual person.
Yes, Lol!!! I didn’t do a very good job explaining it. Sorry about that. I taped a video today and its so much better! I’ll post it tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by and thanks for leaving a comment. I sincerely appreciate it! Hugs, Brandy
Will definitely try to make the tissue box today as I love the idea. I live in NC and wish I could come to your stamp camp.
I wish you did live closer because you are always welcome! Let me know if your ever passing through and if we have something going on… you’ll have to join us. Where do you live? Thanks for stopping by… I sincerely appreciate it. Many Blessings, Brandy
For some reason, I don’t understand the tissue box part, can you explain it again??
Its not you… its me and some bad directions. Lol! I shot a video today and its much better. I’ll post it tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week! Brandy
