*********start crafting!!**********

*Fold your Not Quite Navy card stock in half to create a 6×6 card.

*wrap the front of the card with the So Saffron ribbon…leaving the edges in the front to be covered by the stamped image!

*Before stamping on your cardstock, practice on a scratch piece of paper. This helps to keep upside down issues or extra stray edge marks on your cardstock. Stamp your image on a piece of Barely Banana cardstock, and cut the cardstock to the desired size, centering the image. Cut a piece of Certainly Celery 1/4inch larger than the stamped cardstock.

*Place your cardstock over the ribbon and adhere it to your card. Take a flower out of the Pretties kit, a sponge and your Barely Banana Classic ink and ink the middle of the flower out…so the petals are lighter than the center.

*Add your finishing touches! Add a piece of Certainly Celery ribbon behind your flower – both held together with a Ice Rhinestone brad. Add deco hat pin by pinning it through the brad feet. Using a scrap of Whisper White paper, stamp the "with love" stamp and punch with the small oval punch. {hint} holding the punch upside down, you can position the punch exactly where you want it, in this case, leaving a little space on the left side for the hole to attach to the flower. Using Linen Thread, tie the small oval tag to your flower center, and use a glue dot to attach to the card front.


One of the beauties of this stamp set is that you can use these sentiments for any occassion! I love it!

Remember, you can get the ribbon bundle and the YUMMY stamp set for free just for buying awesome products from Stampin' UP! You can e-mail me an order, order directly from my web site…or even get other products for free by booking a workshop!
