The floral stem is from Echoes of Kindness, a Stampin' Up! Hostess Level 2 stamp set. Team up with a friend or throw yourself a little papercrafts party. Free hostess stamps and merchandise begin with a product order of $150 (and available with an on-line order). Click here for full details.
I inked the stem in Not Quite Navy and used a More Mustard Stampin' Up! Marker to add color to the leaves. TIP: Create a simple watercolor effect by using the large end of the marker and leaving areas of the petals white. Four Not Quite Navy brads accent the corners. The image was adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals to More Mustard and Bashful Blue card stock.
Peeking from behind is a layer of Not Quite Navy, dolled up with paper piercing. The sentiment from Thank You Kindly was inked and matted on Not Quite Navy. The Whisper White on the base was zipped through the Big Shot accompanied by a pretty Texturz Plate for a dry embossed finish. The card base is 4.25 x 5.5 (scored at the top).
