  • Bloomin’ Lovely!  These pretty, dimensional flowers and leaves were created by layering Stylish Stems Framelits Dies and then giving them a “lift” with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The label was also created with a sentiment and die from the Special Reason product bundle.

  • Pretty special!  The inside sentiment coordinates perfectly with the sentiment on the front of the card.
  • A floral pattern in So Saffron from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack along with a strip of Watermelon Wonder Card Stock embellish the envelope flap.
