Betsy's Blossoms

When the new catalog was previewed in June I was so excited to get my hands on this set early. As demonstrators we are able to pre-buy new product before it becomes available to everyone else. Another perk of the Starter Kit!  Now until December 16th the $99 Starter Kit includes $125 in product that you select, free shipping AND an entire color collection of ink pads.  Now is a great time to get those "wish list" items. There is no obligation to purchase anything further and there are no hidden gimmicks. You can find the details by CLICKING HERE.

Here are a few tips to making this card. 1)  I used VersaMark on the flower images in the background.  I love Versamark for a more subtle image, especially when stamping on darker colored cardstock.  2) The rounded section behind the flower is actually 1/2 of the 2 1/2" circle punch mounted along side the rectangle piece.  The petals of the flower hide the seam well.
