I began by stamping my flower images onto a scrap piece of card stock and once I had them stamped I used my spritzer tool and my SU crumb cake marker and I spritzed all over my image. It's hard to see in my photo, but it's there and it looks neat in person. I also used my spritzer tool over my sentiment. To ink up my images I just tapped the flower part of my stamp in my wisteria wonder ink pad and then I carefully inked up the stem and leaves part of my stamp onto my certainly celery ink pad. Sometimes I think inking up a stamp this way is easier and faster than trying to color it using markers.
Next, I took a 4 1/4" x 4" piece of certainly celery card stock and using my labels collection framelits dies I cut out the center- to create a frame, or as some of you know this is the negative portion of the die cut out. Once I had my certainly celery frame I decided to run it through my big shot using the vintage wallpaper embossing folder.
The rest of my card was just a matter of assembling it. The small piece of wisteria wonder card stock on the right side of my card has the ends trimmed off in a V shape and that I just did with my paper snips. Next, I wrapped some twine around it and I tied it off using a button with a small bow.
For my sentiment I wanted it to stand out a bit more that the rest of my card and a great way to do this is to layer your sentiments. I played around with the punches I have until I got a set of punched layers that I felt worked okay together.
