The brief was set; a stamp set that had at least one word in its’ title starting with the letter F. Luckily I have a few sets, both current and retired. It really was a close call between Bella and Friends and Floral Phrases and I had ideas for both sets. In the end though I went with Floral Phrases, a set I used frequently in the past. It always looks elegant and even using it for a wedding hasn’t put me off it.
I’m fortunate to have the coordinating dies as shown in the phot above. I’d decided on an easel card so used some scrap non SU cardstock to make sure my measurements were correct and the design worked before starting. I chose Soft Sky, such a pretty blue and for a fresh look, teamed it with Whisper White.
While the card is easy to make, it was just a bit fiddly ensuring the die cut layers matched exactly
A narrow piece of ribbon added a little more interest before putting the sentiment stamped onto a stitched oval on the front.
I added a bow and 3 tiny flowers that I salvaged from the die cutting. For a little sparkle I placed a rhinestone in the centre of each flower. I have a feeling I’ll be making this card again soon but adapted slightly for an anniversary that’s coming up soon.
