Good Morning! I’m back with a card to share with you today. It’s soft, it’s fresh and it just makes me smile. I hope it brings a smile and ray of sunshine to you as well!
I’ve used Spellbinders’ Layered Poinsettia dies to make the flowers and leaves. I especially love the buds. I’m going to be playing with these dies a lot!! As usual, shopping links are provided at the bottom of this post.
I’ve angled the card to show you a bit of the dimension of the blooms and buds. I used an open passe-partout brass stencil (EH 1820) for the frame on the design. Proverbs 3:5 (this Verve stamp can be purchased at the Stamp Simply Ribbon store) was stamped on the base layer. Three buds were tucked in on the right side of the arrangement as well as placed on the upper right corner.
I used Memories ink pads in Soft Rose and Dahlia on the flowers and Pine Green on the leaves. The verse was stamped with Stampin’ Up!’s Chocolate Chip ink pad. A few twigs and baby’s breath complete the design.
The buds are my favorite! I’m going to attempt making gardenias with these dies next.

Embossing Tool – Large Ball (for mid-size flowers and leaves)
