Today we're spotlighting one of my favorite sets of the release, Dream Big. I am totally diggin' the flowers Julee created. Here's the card I created:
1. Cut light green cardstock to 4 3/4" square & stamp leaf images (different sizes) in darker green all over panel.
2. Sponge edges with dark green ink.
3. Stamp flowers in red, teal, & yellow ink on scrap of white cardstock. Stamp centers with brown ink.
4. Cut & emboss focal image with white cardstock with a square shaped die. Leaving die in place, sponge light blue ink around the inside edges.
5. Remove focal panel from die & stamp flowers & centers in bottom left corner.
6. Stamp sentiment in brown ink in top right corner of die cut panel.
7. Cut out flowers from step 3 and adhere to focal image with foam dimensionals.
8. Punch hole in right side of main image panel & thread turquoise ribbon through.
9. Adhere image panel to green square panel with foam dimensionals.
10. Wrap ends of ribbon around green panel & adhere to back.
11. Using separate strip of ribbon, tie bow attached to ribbon.
12. Cut white card base and fold to 5 1/4" x 5 1/4".
13. Adhere green square panel to card base with foam dimensionals.
14. Add glitter glue to flower centers.
