Of course, as soon as I had it in my eager little hands, I realized how perfect those blossoms would be for FUSSY CUTTING!
My daughter and son-in-law's anniversary was coming up, so I decided to go for it for that special occasion.
I chose a fairly subtle Designer Series Paper to use for my flowers so the fine sketchy lines of the stamped images would show up well. For the center of the large flower, I stamped that on Crushed Curry cardstock. The flowers were pretty easy to cut out, and looked so NICE when they were!
The blossoms were set against a soft red print background. The two partially opened flowers were glued in place, while the large bloom was popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Have you ever done that? Missed a really great set over and over and over until you finally notice it and realize how wonderful it really is? And wonder how you could ever have overlooked something so JUST RIGHT for you?
The cool thing about the Hostess Sets, found on pages 237-240, is if you place an order that even just sneaks by the $150 level, you qualify for these sets, that are priced so reasonably. Check out all the hostess benefits you can earn on page 236! "It's crazy easy"!
Emily and Stephen, I hope you have a very happy anniversary -- and that you liked your card!
