Garden in Bloom Card

Today I thought I'd share the details for one of my July Cards Class cards. It's such a fun card and I really love cards with clean lines. That makes this one a winner for me!

Stamp Sets: Garden in Bloom, Gorgeous Grunge, Watercolor Thank You, 
Inks: Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Watermelon Wonder plus Memento Tuxedo Black 
Other: Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Brick Wall
(See below for picture links to all products mentioned)

I stamped things in this order: Large Flowers, Thank You, Small Flowers, Large Leaves, Small Leaves and then the splatters last. After this, the entire front panel (4 x 5-1/4" Whisper White CS) was embossed with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder and then glue to a card base of the new Thick Whisper White Card Stock.

Can I tell you what I love about these products?
1. The Garden in Bloom Stamp Set is a-ma-zing! It's a photopolymer set that makes two-step (and three-step on some of the images) stamping a breeze! I love how fun and whimsical the images are. And, there's even a matching package of Designer Series Paper, called English Garden, that's just beautiful.

2. The new Thick Whisper White Cardstock. It's 100lb cardstock (vs 80 lbs on our normal Whisper White CS). It has the same great coating that makes stamping crisp, beautiful images almost foolproof, but the new thickness adds such a nice weight to your cards. I'm in Love with it! 

3. The Brick Wall embossing folder is super addictive to use. Go ahead and search Pinterest for it, you'll see some really gorgeous ideas! I love that the folder itself is 6x6. I wasn't really sure, at first, why I would need it to be 6x6... I mean, I don't really do that many 6x6 things to be honest. But then, a light bulb moment hit and I realized that, with this folder, I'm no longer limited to the horizontal or vertical orientation of the folder. I can turn my cardstock whichever way I want because it fits both ways! How cool is that? 

I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Have a great day!
