Garden in Bloom


Inspiration:  Not sure why I'm focused on flowers in the middle of the holiday season.  Maybe it's because I've been making Christmas cards either for classes, customers or my own list since August. LOL  Regardless of the time of year, I'm hoping anyone would enjoy receiving this card.  I used some current products and a couple of retired favorites.

Tips:
  • The flower image is adhered with dimensionals.
  • Use a Stampin' Pierce Mat underneath your card stock when using these photopolymer stamps to get a better image.  
  • Cut two pieces of baker's twine about 5 inches long each.  Wrap the ends of each piece around to the back of the white embossed piece and adhere with tape.  Then, gather the two pieces together by tying a bow around them.  For a flatter center of the bow, don't tie the baker's twine around the two pieces. Instead, start making your loops and tie the bow.  You're basically taking out one step.  Let me know if that doesn't make sense.  Place a rolled up glue dot behind the bow to secure it in place.
