Field Flowers

Field Flowers by Andrea G71

May Stamp Club Card

This card idea was taken from the front cover of the 2011-12 Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalogue.  Below is a side view of the card.  As you can see there is a little flap to put a gift card or seed packet inside.  We tried a gum package but it was a little too thick.

To create flower heads follow the two step stamping technique:   Use Calypso Coral ink with the more solid flower head from the Field Flowers set.  Stamp on scrap paper once before stamping on the Very Vanilla card stock.  Then stamp over this image with the more outlined flower head in Tangerine Tango ink.  Add the flower center using Early Espresso ink.
