I hope everyone had a fabulous Mother's Day or even a fabulous weekend!
I have been fooling around with one of the flower images from the stamp set Fabulous Florets and embossed several ones using Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, So Saffron and Blushing Bride card stock. Most of the cards you've seen to date have used vibrant colors such as Melon Mambo and Tango Tangerine because the stamp set coordinates with the Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper. Yes, they are bright cheerful and gorgeous colors but I thought I would try something a little different.
I stamped the card stock with Versamark and then embossed with Whisper White Emboss Powder and set it with the Heat Tool. For the leaves, I stamped the leaf image from Fabulous Florets with Versamark and Wild Wasabi Emboss Powder on Wild Wasabi Card Stock. I cut out the flowers and leaves with the Paper Snips. The Very Vanilla Card Stock Layer was embossed with the Flower Garden Embossing Folder to give the layer some interest and as a balance to the flowers on the right side.
The base card was embossed with the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder and finished off with Very Vanilla 5/8" Satin Ribbon and an Antique Brad.
I will probably complete another card with the left over flowers.
