STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base of Crumb Cake card stock.

Crop a piece of Whisper White card stock with a die-cutting machine, platform, and the Florentine Die. Trim to 3 7/8 x 5 1/8. Adhere with bits of Snail Adhesive or Mini Glue Dots.

Use the Stamparatus to stamp the image (Just Because) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a piece of Whisper White card stock. Watch my 4 Best Tips Cling Stamp video here for tips on using the new and improved stickers.

Crop using a die-cutting machine, platform, and Rectangle Stitched die. Wrap with Linen Thread, securing with a bow over the right side of the flower pot.

Color with Light Poppy Parade and Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Add three Basic Black Faceted Dots to the base of each flower. TIP: I like using my Take a Pick Tool to accomplish this.
