Card Classes are Coming!
Say It Isn't So, In Colors, Don't Go!

Botanicals! Can Spring Be Far Behind?

I'm working on a class featuring the Botanical Gardens bundle.  This bundle caught my eye as soon as I opened the Occasions catalog the first time.  I love flowers and I am ready for spring.  Winter isn't my most favorite season!  The class will consist of 5 cards.  Today, I am sharing just a little teaser.

This card starts out with an Old Olive card base cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4.  I added a layer of Mossy Meadow cardstock cut at 4 x 5 1/4.  The Botanical Garden Designer Series Paper leaves sheet was cut at 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  Did you know that the Botanical Bundle has three components?  Yes, 3.  It has the patterned paper, the Botanical Blooms stamp set, and the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies.  Wow!

The sentiment is from the Birthday Blooms stamp set.  It is stamped in Old Olive ink and then punched out with the 2 1/2 inch Circle Punch.  I made a little frame from that out of the Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Circle Collection Framelits.  To be honest, I cut this circle out of the layer of Mossy Meadow I had already cut.  It's going to be covered anyway and it saves paper!  I used the Botanical framelits to cut the flower out of Perfect Plum cardstock and the leaves from Old Olive cardstock.  I had to sponge around these elements!  I think it's required!  I did stamp the leaves with Mossy Meadow ink, too.  Candy Dots from the regals pack finish off my flowers.  The circle embellishment was attached to the card using dimensionals.
