Thank you with Beautiful Blooms

Welcome back for another project! Our Crazy Crafters are being highlighted over at our wonderful Mentor's blog - thank you so much Kylie Bertucci you are the best!
I'm excited to share this card because I love the Birthday Blooms Stamp set! Plus I think I have discovered how to create a faux wood panel (like the ones in the Cottage Greetings card kit).
You know I love a lot of layers and this card delivers on that! I especially love the glimmer paper - its so pretty in Blushing Bride. After layering all the background pieces I stamped, coloured (markers) and carefully cut the 'Bloom' out. 
To create the Faux Wood Panel I layered So Saffron Cardstock with a sheet of vellum from the FREE SALEABRATION item - 'Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack'. It was important for me to add this layer behind the flower to help make the flower stand out from the busy background.
Try making this card! Here are the measurements for you:
  • Aussie C6 card base in Whisper White Thick cardstock
  • Mossy Meadow Frame 3-7/8" x 5-5/8"
  • Love Blossoms DSP Panel 3-3/4" x 5-1/2"
  • Blushing Bride Glimmer Strip 1" x 5-1/2"
  • Mossy Meadow Strip 1/2" x 5-1/2"
Be inspired with this colour combination, feel free to share and pin it!
