Flower Fest Card

Here is the first set I purchased from the new Summer Mini. It is my favorite by far. What I really like about this set is that most of the flowers have a matching punch, so no having to cut out every flower to create those fun looks we all love. Not that I mind doing that but isn't it nice when you don't have to. Oh, so this set is called Flower Fest (122278 $27.95 w; 122280 $19.95c), page 20 in the Summer Mini. The verse you see is also from the Summer Mini, called Happy Greetings (123311, $18.95w; 123313, $14.95c) it is full of some very cute and fun verses, I was in need of a new set and this fit the bill perfectly.
I call this card a flap card because the front is made of a flap 3-1/4" wide. It attaches at the back and folds around to the front (the flap is 4-3/4" x  3-1/4"). To make the flowers I stamped the images in a bold color and then using sponge daubers and a slightly lighter color I sponged color into the centers. Then I easily punched them out and attached them to the flap. I am so happy with the way it came out. It feels summery to me. Enjoy!
Stamp Sets: Flower Fest and Happy Greetings
Ink: Marina Mist, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Pink Pirouette Bashful Breeze and Early Espresso
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, Not Quite Navy, and Early Espresso; Sahara Sand patterns designer series paper
Accessories: fancy flower punch, extra larger scallop circle, 1-3/8" circle punch, wide oval punch, decorative label punch, dotted scallop ribbon punch, sponge daubers and narrow taffeta ribbon in delightful daffodil.

Happy Stampin'
