This card looks rather simple and it is but there are a few tricks I wanted to show you with this one! That flower bouquet from the Number of Years Stamp Set is a multi-step stamp so that you can create a beautiful bouquet!! I am loving all of the looks you can create with it. There are 3 different types of flowers you can use – the purple double flower image, the coral 5 petal flower, and the blue flower.
I started with a Whisper White card base and added some of the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper to the left hand side. How appropriate to use that DSP with a flower bouquet on a birthday card!?!?! Love it! 🙂 After I added the Designer Paper, I wrapped some Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the card twice and tied it into a bow. I always recommend tying the twine into a double knot to get a tight wrap and then make the bow! Now for the bouquet of flowers. I used the Number of Years Stamp Set and stamped the greenery image in Mint Macaron. You want to be sure to press hard in the center as it seems this larger image needs firm pressure. A few of the times, I noticed if I didn’t press in the middle, it would be light or missing a few leaves. I stamped the double tulip flower in Wisteria Wonder. This image needs to be stamped on the left hand side on the double stems. Then I stamped the 5 petal flower in Calypso Coral and the coralbells (I think) in Marina Mist. The 5 petal flower is a single flower that I stamped twice. You can use only one of the flowers for all of the stems or mix and match. I love that! It’s so much fun and each look is different! For the greeting, I used the Rose Wonder Stamp Set and Marina Mist ink! This look is perfect for any occasion and you can mix up darker colors or brighter colors too. I love it.
