Sneak Peak Day Two: Botanical Blossoms


Welcome back to day two of Flourishes Release Week Sneak Peaks!! It's only day two, are you excited as I am with Flourishes April's Release? Today's sneak peak is called Botanical Blossoms 2 and it's every bit as lovely as the first set!

These stamp images conjure up every summer's day watching flowers bob their heads in the wind. And smelling their sweet fragrance in the wind! Each bookplate is detailed and just perfect for a large or a small handmade note card. The sentiments are varied and perfect for almost every occasion! 


I used Flourishes "Botanical Blossoms" stamping it out then cutting around my image with my craft knife. I layered my card with Flourishes "Classic Ivory" cardstock. I used a Spellbinders "Fancy Tag" turned sideways that I stamped on, to show my sentiment from the Botanical Blossoms set.
