Last Chance Blog Hop

Oh so sad to see one of my favorite stamp sets being retired!  But just think of the new possibilities that we will see in June.  I loved this set for its versatility.  The two-step stamping of the flowers makes it easy to get realistic looking flowers using two colors - calypso coral and crisp cantaloupe.  I wanted to keep the card simple and I wanted it to be able to be mailed in a regular envelope so no embellishments.  But the layering of paper gives lots of depth and dimension.  Typically I would have to add some texturing but also wanted to keep it simple.  I used this for a card class and everyone loved it.  It is a five minute card.  I did cut out the flowers after I stamped them on whisper white and popped them up with dimensionals.  Hope you enjoy!!  

Here is what I used to make this card:
