Today I decided to make a quick and easy floral card, using a new to me stamp set – Wild about Flowers. I’ve come to realise that I don’t tend to go for the flowery sets and I’m not sure why, as I certainly like flowers! This is a two-step stamp set that is beautifully versatile, as well as having some great sentiments, including a retirement one. I actually used a sentiment from Floral Phrases, as I really liked how it looked, but I can see the sentiments in Wild About Flowers coming in very handy. Embarrassing admission – two-step stamp sets are sometimes three-step and generally they come marked with 1, 2 and 3 to make it obvious. It took me a couple of minutes to realise that although this stamp set comes with numbering, it’s to ensure you stamp the right flower heads on the correct stems! So 1 and 1 go together, 2 and 2 go together and, you’ve got it now, right?
My base is Perfect Plum, with a Very Vanilla mat. I thought that Perfect Plum would go well with Sweet Sugarplum (how could they not?) and I really like how they look together. The stems are Garden Green. I stamped the sentiment in Perfect Plum and then constructed with tombow. I’m really pleased with my fresh and flowery card, hope you like it too!
