Layer and adhere a 2 3/4 x 4 1/4 piece of Vellum card stock to a 3 1/4 x 4 3/4 piece of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper and to the card base with Snail Adhesive. 

TIP:  Adhere the Vellum so that it is hidden behind the strip of Whisper White card stock. 

Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock to 1 x 5.  Use the Stamparatus to position and stamp the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink.  Adhere as shown with Snail Adhesive.

Stamp the flower image in Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink onto Vellum card stock.  Use a Heat Tool on low to quickly dry and set the ink. 

TIP:   The ink will dry on its own, but it does take time.  If you do not use a Heat Tool to set the ink, be sure to set it aside and allow to dry completely so that the ink does not smear. 

QUICK & EASY!  Crop with the coordinating Perennial Flower Punch. Layer and adhere the petals as shown with Mini Glue Dots.   Adhere to the card with a Stampin’ Dimensional. 

POP OF PERSONALITY!  Add Gold Metallic Pearls to the flower center and Whisper White Strip.

    Mary, you are a wizard. I, like others, was not interested in this DSP, but you come along and turn it in to a “I HAVE to have it! What you have done is beautiful and I thank you for sharing.

    Mary, your 3 cards are so pretty. This designer paper did not call to me as much as some others, but I love how you used it with the vellum. I will now add it to my huge wish list for future purchases. Thanks so much for your beautiful inspiration!

    Mary, I think this suite is so beautiful, I love the Monet like feel of the dsp. Your note cards utilize it so beautifully. After watching Debbie Dean’s demonstration of this suite at OnStage I HAD to have it. I really believe that with this suite crafters of all levels could create beautiful projects.
