This pretty card is easier than it looks, fast, and perfect as thank you or note card!

Stitched Exotics Stamp set

Ink: Bashful Blue

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue

Very Vanilla button

Glue Dot & Dimensionals

Cut a 5x7piece of Bashful Blue Cardstock for the cardbase.

Fold in half. Cut a strip of 1 5/8 ballet blue, and a 1 ½ of very vanilla. You will also need about 4 large very vanilla scraps.

On your cardbase, stamp a random pattern in Bashful Blue with the small flower stamp from Stitched Exotics. Then stamp the stitched leaf from the same set in Bashful blue on the Very Vanilla strip in a tight random pattern.

On your 4 scrap pieces of Very Vanilla, stamp the large round stitched flower, the medium flower, and 2 of the solid leafs, all in Bashful Blue. Cut out each, leaving a small border of vanilla on the medium flower and leaves. For the large flower, just cut along the largest outline.

Adhere the medium flower to the large flower. Bend the petals up slightly.

Adhere the Vanilla strip to the Ballet Blue strip, then adhere that to the cardbase. Place dimensionals on back of the flower, keeping them somewhat center. Add to card. Adhere the two leaves, tucking them under the flower.

Add the vanilla button with a glue dot.
