I Finally Got My Floral Phrases!

I was so excited yesterday, knowing that my next Stampin' Up! order would be arriving. Usually the
parcels arrive between 1:00 and 2:00. So I was ever on the watch for that parcel to arrive around that time. Well, it was one of those rare times when I didn't receive it until 6:15pm! Wouldn't you know it, the one time I was waiting for one of my all time favorites!

By the time I went through the order, prepped all the stamp sets, and labeled the items that needed it, my next thought was "Do I have time to create something with my new "Floral Phrases"bundle? I decided to go ahead and create a wedding card. Most of the projects made with this set have been created in Night of Navy, and as much as I love that, I wanted to choose different colours and get to the Night of Navy at another time. So I chose to make a Wedding card with Sahara Sand, Blushing Bride, and Whisper White.

The border stamp in this set did case me a  bit of a problem as it seems to have a slight curve to it. After my first attempt I tried to straighten it, and while it turned out better, there was still a hint of the cure there. But, I was not in the mood to try for the third time to straighten it.

In the next close up photo, you can see that I stamped three extra motifs and cut them out, popping them above the stamped motifs underneath. I was wishing that I had ordered my Wink of Stella for this card.

Next you can see the layering of the card.

And, finally, the inside of the card (with a crooked sentiment).

I am so looking forward to making more creations with this stamp set, but it will have to wait until this evening as I will be out helping a fellow Demo construct her new blog today.

I have classes planned for this set ,and the die set, and the DSP! so watch for them!

Happy stamping!
