Bella's Bloom

I CASE'd this card directly from the new catalog! The 2009-2010 Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog will be available to customers beginning July 1. The samples are terrific and easy to re-create, just like this one. Would you like the new Stampin' Up catalog?

Back to this card. The base is Close to Cocoa cut 4-1/4 inches x 11 inches, scored and folded at 5-1/2 inches. The background is layered pieces of Whisper White cardstock, Walk In The Park Designer Series Paper and Cameo Coral cardstock. The flower in the focal image is from the Bella's Bloom stamp set. It is stamped in Cameo Coral on Whisper White and framed by one of the images from the Matchbox Messages set which is currently available in the Occasions Mini Catalog until June 30. The stamped frames were carefully trimmed and mounted separately to a swatch of Close to Cocoa cardstock using Stampin' Dimensionals. A bit of Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon is tied around the card for further embellishment and the sentiment from Bell's Bloom is stamped using Close to Cocoa Classic Ink. I added Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter with a glue pen to add a bit of sparkle. You could change the sentiment on this design for any occasion.
