Floral Congratulations

I made a simple floral designed card which involved lots of stamping for the background and I decided it should be a general congratulations type of card. It is a design that can work for anniversaries, job promotions, graduation, etc.

All the stamps are from Gina K. Designs. Stamp sets used were a single Congratulations stamp set, the little white flower with an orange center from the Simple Flowers set and the rest of the flowers and foliage were from the Made With Love set.

I started out with Peach Bellini card stock for the card base. Then I stamped with lots of different colors using various flowers and foliage randomly all over the card front.

I then added a lovely die tag from the French Collection by Sue Wilson. On this tag I stamped the sentiment and also added some orange rhinestones. I then added some white pearls to the darker red flowers and an orange center to the white flowers with an orange Galaxy pen.

I lined the whole card with a sheet of white copier paper so that it would have a more finished look. Depending on what the occasion will be will be the determination of what I put for the inside verse.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Tuesday afternoon card making. I had fun too!

God bless,
