Bold Blossoms For You

There are some cards that I really have so much fun making, and this is one of them. The citrusy color combination makes me happy. The use of several punches makes assembly a breeze, and the flowers and butterfly are so cheerful and make me smile. I hope it will generate a smile from the recipient!

I combined the For You Flower a la carte stamp with the Bold Blossoms stamp set for this card. The For You Flower stamp will be retiring on July 1, so this is your last chance to purchase it. The faux stitching on the edges of the card was done by using a piercing tool and mat pack to first create the piercings. Then I "connected the dots" using a white gel pen.
