Fancy Square & Flowers Thanks So Much Card

Every now and again I borrow the SU! 'Greenhouse Garden' stamp set from my friend Jan and get busy with my trusty Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to make pretty two step stamping flowers.  My colour combo is Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, Old Olive and white.  The fancy die cut squares on the card come from the Sue Wilson 'Times Square' die set.  I stamped the leafy stem from the SU! 'Summer Silhouettes' set and the thanks sentiment on the white square and then popped up the three flowers.  The Rose Red fancy square is also popped up.  To complete the front I added some olive Swarovski crystals.


Here's the inside of the card and the envelope.


Multi step stamp sets seem to be really popular at the moment.  These days they're clear stamps so it's a lot quicker and easier without the need for a stamp positioner!  Last month's issue of Simply Cards & Papercraft (issue 149) came with a free multi step rose set with matching die designed by AlteNew.  Being a lover of multi step flower stamps I had to get that - it's a really pretty set.  Stay tuned for a rosy card appearing here on the blog very soon!
