Simply Pretty Flower

I love the simple quality of this card. It's pretty, easy and quick.

This is a standard size, top-fold card of White Daisy Cardstock. I cut a panel of Buttercup B&T from the Let's Get Together paper pack to 1/4" smaller than the front of the card. Then a strip of the flowered paper from the same pack. The flower is stamped with Cranberry, Butter cup, and Garden Green Exclusive Inks. The flower outline and stem are one image (from the Thoughts of You set) - so I inked the top half with the Cranberry pad, and then the stem half with the Garden Green pad. The leaves are separate stamps that you can place on the stem anywhere you like. The solid part of the flower was actually stamped twice to fill it in a bit more.

After stamping, I layered the flower panel on a piece of Cranberry cardstock and tied a piece of Buttercup organdy around the bottom edge. Then just attached the whole thing to the card front.

Hope you have a lovely Sunday!
