Whose ready for another happy card? You can’t help but smile and be happy when you stamp with the Bloom by Bloom set. The images are bold, easy to stamp and make the perfect backgrounds.
Be sure to check out the backer boards on your DSP packs. There you will find a list of all the coordinating colors. That’s a good place to start when choosing a color palette. For this card, I used Whisper White, Call Me Clover, Calypso Coral and Night of Navy.
The large floral image made the perfect focal image for this card. Yes, I did have to fussy cut it, but really it was quick and easy. To dress up the sides of the DSP, I used the border die in the Be Mine Stitched Framelits. That little die is worth it’s weight in gold.
Using my Dark Pineapple Punch Blend, I colored the pearls to highlight the top of the flower. Pretty cute, if I say so myself. And that gorgeous Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon tied everything together in more ways than one.
The Bloom by Bloom set doesn’t have any sentiments. So, I went to the Strong & Beautiful set to gather those. To finish off the inside of the card I stamped the greeting and another flower, this one smaller than the focal flower.
I featured this card in a Facebook Live. I would love to have you join in the fun next time. Be sure to like and follow my page. Who knows, maybe you could win a prize. I go Live on Sunday evenings at 7pm (CST).
