A Garden in Bloom Wetlands Gorgeous Grunge Birthday Card

I don't think I can make enough flower cards.  It seems like I make a bunch of them and suddenly fall is here.  Fall flowers are pretty but not as bright and cheery as the spring and summer ones are.  

This flower is from the "Garden in Bloom" set.  This is a very fun set because it's one of those 3 step stamping sets. 2 and 3 step stamping always gives the image a nice depth.

I stamped my flower using Blackberry Bliss.  I also stamped the words and dots using that ink.  The dots are from the "Gorgeous Grunge" set and were stamped off once.  The words are from the "Wetlands" set.  The center of the flower was stamped using Hello Honey ink.

The stem and leaves were stamped using Mossy Meadow ink. One of the nice things about the polymer stamp sets is not only that you can see through them for better placement but you can also bend them.  I bent the stem as I was setting it in place on the stamping block.  

I did cut the flower out by hand.  I'm not a big fan of fussy cutting but once in a while I do break down and do it!!!  

I layered the focal image using a trimmed piece of Blackberry Bliss.  And those two layers were set in place on a folded half sheet of Whisper White card stock.  And that was it!  So simple!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,

Simple but just right, fussy cutting the flower gives it depth. Love the blackberry bliss.
