A Very Big Blossom

Once in a while I like to pull out Stampin' Up!'s retired sets. They get lonely sitting out of the way, high up on a shelf :). On this card I used the Big Blossom stamp from the 2007 Sale-A-Bration promotion. With this stamp I have often seen people use the Kissing Technique. This is a fun technique to use and works especially well on bold stamps that are large. Big Blossom is perfect for it.

On my card, I inked Big Blossom in Apricot Appeal and set it down facing up. Then I inked the Paisley Background stamp in Ruby Red and stamped on the Big Blossom stamp. Finally I stamped the Big Blossom stamp that had been "kissed" on Whisper White card stock.

What a fun card to make and it came together fairly quickly.
