We made this card last week at club and I heard over and over again how many in attendance saw the Floral Statements stamp set in the Annual catalog but it didn’t do anything for them. This happens to me fairly often until I see a sample made with a certain product and then I’m sold on it. I really liked this stamp set when I first saw it and I knew I could show others how wonderful this stamp set is. So, that’s what happened with this card. I sold quite a few of them at club. The comments I heard were most were something like, “I didn’t know I needed that”. I started the card out by stamping “Hello” floral image on Whisper White card stock with Basic Black Ink and then water colored flowers in Calypso Coral and leaves in Pear Pizzazz with the Aqua Painter by picking up ink from the lid of the stamp pad. Next I wrapped the 6″ piece of ribbon around the top edge of Whisper White card stock securing it on the back side with Mini Glue Dots. I tied a bow with the 8″ piece of ribbon and attached it to the front of the card with a Mini Glue Dot. Finally, I attached the Whisper White piece to the Basic Black piece and attached these layers to the front of the Calypso Coral card base which had been folded on the score line, and added Pearl Basic Jewels in the center of the flowers.
