I started with a Lovely Lipstick card base and stamped the flower from the Bloom By Bloom Stamp Set all over. Using Lovely Lipstick Ink, it gives a nice watermark or tone on tone look. Be sure to fall off the cardstock so the pattern looks continuous. Next, I took a piece of the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper (2″ x 4″) and punched it with the Banner Triple Punch. I added it to the card front flush with the left side.
Next, I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flower on it. Be sure to stamp the flower first and then the stem. This will ensure that the stem isn’t too high or too far over for the bloom to fit. The bloom was stamped in Lovely Lipstick and the stem in Call Me Clover. I added the greeting in the lower right corner from the Well Said Stamp Set. It was stamped in Night of Navy.
I love the Well Said Stamp Set because it has perfect inside and outside greetings! I added a message on the inside as well as a little flower!
Back to the front focal point! After stamping, I layered this onto another piece of the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper. Taking a piece of the Calypso Coral Satin Ribbon folded in half, I laid it across the banner on the card front. The Stampin’ Dimensionals on the stamped flower layer secure this ribbon loop in place just perfectly!! To finish off the card, I added some Enamel Shapes to the flower for texture! Just perfect!
