Bold Blossom Thank You!

What a cute set this Bold Blossom is!  So bright, bold and cheerful!  It makes such fun cards and is very easy to work with.  This card was the Make 'n Take for our April demonstrators meeting; we always have a great time of learning, sharing, stamping and friendship!  You can join us for these terrific meetings when you start your own business with Stampin' Up!  Contact me here for the how-to details!
The card base is Daffodil Delight stamped with the flower image in Daffodil ink for a subtle tone on tone background.  The focal layer is Whisper White cardstock stamped with the stem in Old Olive and the butterfly in Night of Navy.  Now that layer is finished (that was easy!); next adhere it to an Old Olive layer just 1/4" larger.  Wrap a length of Real Red grosgrain ribbon around the layer and tie a soft knot. 
Adhere the image layer to the card base.  Punch out two Real Red circles with the 1" Circle Punch.  Stamp two flowers on scrap Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the 3/4" Circle Punch.  Adhere the red circles at the top of the stems and layer the white circles on top of the red with a Dimensional. Add a self-adhesive Rhinestone to the center of each for some bling!
This sentiment is included in the set (that's always nice!); stamp it in Real Red ink on Whisper White and punch out with the Large Oval Punch. Punch a Scallop Oval out of Old Olive; layer the sentiment on top of that.  Adhere with a Dimensional!  Viola!  A cheerful handcrafted greeting done!   Oh yes, you can stamp some flowers and butterfly inside to perk that up too!  That's always a fun look for the recipient!  And don't forget to stamp some of these images on your envelope which immediately says to the recipient "FUN MAIL"! (as opposed to bills, lol!)

Thanks for coming by today!  I love sharing the fun and joy of stamping with you!  Have a wonderful weekend!
