Petal Potpourri.... Thanks so very Much!

This is a card that I received from my good friend (and fellow demonstrator), Melissa Roberts.  We were roommates at the Stampin' Up Leadership Convention back in January, and this was her swap card.

I knew as soon as I saw it that we'd be making this card at class (and we did, just this month!).

We start our card with a Daffodil Delight card base, then added a layer of Blackberry Bliss card stock, followed by a layer of Whisper White card stock embossed with the Large Polka Dot Embossing folder.

Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder  133739  $7.95

We also tied one of my simple "cheater bows" around the card using our gorgeous Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon - just cut a strip of ribbon a little bit wider than the card and adhere it behind the Blackberry Bliss layer (then attach the layers to the card base).  Next, tie a simple knot around the strip of ribbon to create the bow (make sure to keep the ribbon on the bolt as you are doing this because it is so much easier to work with this way!).

Daffodil Delight 1/2" Seam-Binding Ribbon  125583  $6.95  

Next, we had some fun stamping (I always love this part!).....

We stamped our flower (from the Petal Potpourri Stamp Set) in Daffodil Delight ink and punched it out with the coordinating Flower Medallion Punch.  Then, we added a 3/4" circle punched from the (Blackberry Bliss) In Color Designer Series Paper Stack.

We also stamped "Thanks So Very Much" from the Simply Wonderful Stamp Set - this is a set you can get for FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration.  This piece (along with the Blackberry Bliss piece behind it) were die-cut using our Banner Framelits - they make a perfect banner every time!!
