Hello and Happy Friday! I have a tutorial for you today using the In Bloom bundle for the Tutorial Medley group. The card I am sharing today was created by me. The In Bloom bundle is my favorite in the Jan-June Mini Catalog. I'm thrilled to let you know that it will also be in the upcoming Annual Catalog! Oh, happy day! Here is my card.
I'm also so so excited that the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper will be in the next catalog, too. That paper is fantastic. I used it for the background and for the frame. Well, here are the details, measurements, and directions.

Adhere the light wood designer paper to the card front.
Stamp the saying from In Bloom on the Basic White CS in the middle. Cut this out with the 6th rectangle in from the Stitched Rectangles dies. It should fit pretty well on this paper. Glue this to the center of the card front.
Cut a frame from the darker designer paper using the 4th in and 7th in. Cut ½ inch strips of the Foam Adhesive Sheet. Add these to the frame and adhere to the card looking to center it in the card and around the words.
Cut various flowers and leaves using the Pierced Blooms dies. Start at opposing corners with the largest flower and compose in opposite directions. I made them match, but you can arrange them to please yourself. For the tiny flowers, place them on a foam mat. Press in the center with something blunt and rounded. The wrong end of one of the retired paper piercer works. This gives them some dimension. Adhere the flowers using glue, glue dots, and bits of the adhesive sheet. Add in leaves where you like them.
Add a bow of Linen Thread to the corner with a rolled up glue dot.
