Lotus Blossom

Happy Monday everyone!  My card today uses the Lotus Blossom set, one of the sets that is free with a $50. purchase from Stampin' Up! during Sale-A-Bration!  It is a three-step stamp; because it is photopolymer, it is so easy to line up the layers which give nice depth to the finished flower!  The sentiment (also from the set) is punched out and has an additional pieces of Garden Green punched out and adhered to the back for a layered look.  The ribbon is the new White Jute Ribbon from the Occasions Catalog;  I love that its a bit "see-through"!  It is tied with Strawberry Slush Baker's Twine.

The inside sentiment says "thank you".  This is a pretty simple card and could be easily replicated.  Hope you enjoy!

Stamps:  Lotus Blossom
Inks:  Strawberry Slush, Melon Mambo, Garden Green
Paper:  Whisper White, Garden Green cardstocks; Painted Blooms DSP (leaf background)
Accessories:  Artisan Label Punc, White Jute Ribbon (new), Strawberry Slush Baker's Twine

Remember Sale-A-Bration is in full swing which it's the only time to take advantage of the super cute bonus products that are available during this time!  

Today is also the day for the continuation of the Creative Blog Hop in which I participated last Monday.  You'll definitely want to go to Deb Currier's blog to see her adorable Valentine card and Sue Erickson's blog to see her pretty MDS card and hand-stamped card as they carry on the "hop"!  You'll also want to see who they nominate to post on Monday, January 19th! Woohoo!

Thanks for visiting!  Please stay safe in all this cold weather in North America!

beautiful card, Margaret....this is my first pick of SAB sets and I am anxiously awaiting delivery. Sadly, I didn't preorder or I'd already be playing with it.

Gorgeous card, Margaret. Thanks for showcasing the Jute Ribbon. I didn't think I needed it, but now I'm rethinking it!
