Inspiration from America...

I love this card design - and I'm allowed to say that  because it's not my idea! I copied the idea from an American stamper called Kerry and she'd kindly given me permission to post the card on my blog. Kerry's sample was Rose Red and Whisper White but I sometimes feel I overuse Rose Red, so changed it to Bordering Blue. 

It's really simple - you just punch out the flowers using the punch from the Three For You kit, which is currently on special offer at £29. I stamped the greeting in the centre and pierced a border on the white layer. The white square is popped up to give it dimension. Finally, add three small white dots in the centres of the flowers.

Cardstock: Bordering Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Bordering Blue
Accessories: Three For You punch box (p80), Crafters’ Tool Kit (p85), uni-ball® Signo white gel pen (p82)
