Blooms Best Wishes Shaped Card

Another shaped card made with the Labels Ten Nestability dies.  I came across these Prima hydrangea flowers in my stash the other day and I realised I haven't used them in ages.  Time to get them out and put some on a card! 

I cut the Labels Ten shapes in Regal Rose CS and I stamped the SU! Bella Toile background stamp over the entire front, stamping with Regal Rose ink stamped off once.  I then stamped the Bella Toile stamp on white CS in Pear Pizzazz ink after stamping off once, cut it out with a petite oval Nestie die and layered it on an Early Espresso oval.  I've sponged the edges of the white oval with Old Olive ink.  I attached the blooms to the oval with small pale pink gem brads and then glued punched leaves behind the blooms.  I used the X Cut Beech Leaf punch which also embosses the leaf veining detail, it's a fab punch.  The sentiment stamped in Early Espresso ink finished the card front.

Then I worked on the envelope and the inside of the card.  Lots of stamping with the gorgeous Bella Toile stamp!  A useful card to keep in my stash as it could be used for a variety of occasions.
