Fabulous Florets

This is the card I sent to my mother-in-law for her birthday. She always had a garden full of flowers and loved to spend time growing many different varieties. Since she is in a nursing home now she rarely gets a chance to get out but when she does she loves to just sit outside in the sunshine enjoying nature. Since she lives in another state I make sure to send her cards made using my flower stamps. When I first saw this set in the mini catalog I knew I had to have it and this is the first card I have made using this set. I stamped the blossoms using pretty in pink and pink passion ink twice on whisper white card stock and then cut them out and layered them using dimensionals. The blossoms were spritzed with frost white shimmer mist which helped to tone down the pink passion ink. The stem image was stamped on whisper white card stock using certainly celery ink and then the blossoms were attached with dimensionals. The flower panel was attached to a layer of pretty in pink and then pink passion with a scalloped edge on the right side. A piece of whisper white card stock was embossed using the framed tulip embossing folder and then trimmed to 3 7/8" x 5 1/8". The embossed layer was attached to a piece of pink passion (4" x 5 1/4") then to a piece of pretty in pink (4 1/8" x 5 3/8") and then the entire panel was attached to a standard A2 card base of whisper white (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"). The sentiment was stamped onto whisper white card stock using pink passion ink and then the end was notched to create a banner and then adhered to a piece of pretty in pink with the end notched to match.
