Need a quick, but beautiful birthday card for someone special. I’ve got one for you. Did you know that the Beautiful Promenade bundle will be carrying over to our new Annual Catalog? Well, it sure is! But, it won’t be in a bundle format and if you wait you’ll loose the 10% discount that currently applies to the pricing.

One of the things that makes this card quick and easy – I’ve used only one ink pad. Fresh Fig is a gorgeous color, but will be retiring with this catalog. Don’t miss this one and be sure to pick up extra paper and an ink refill.

Aren’t these flowers gorgeous. You can create all those variations in color with the two step stamping. I stamped off (second generation stamping) to get a lighter color on the inside of the flower. But to add even more, I pulled the color in the center with my Wink of Stella pen.

I even used that technique on the inside of the card. Stamping the sweet little floral image really dressed things up. It’s so easy to make the inside of your cards special.
