Bloom time

Hello crafty friends, today I wanted to share a card I made using the stamp set from the  April Bloom Box from Fun Stampers Journey.  Below is a photo of what the kit will help you create with all the pre cut card stock and embellishments!!

I used the stamp set and stamped the small daisy several times using Black licorice ink as well as Lemongrass, and then fussy cut them out.  I then used my favorit go to Die set.. Blooming Details and cut out the leaves in the Mirror Silver  specialty paper. I attached them with Journey Craft glue and some FSJ Square foam adhesives.

From a previous card I made I had used Sweet Pear card stock and cut out a fern with the Die..Mystic Fern Die. and saved the CS to use the Negative part of the cut..I then placed a piece of licorice black CS to glue to the back of the open  part of the fern cut .  This mat wa then sprinkled with silver and the Electric lime Silk.  Lastly I glued the finished mat to the 4 and 1/4 by 5 1/2 whip cream card base. 

This month the Silks and Splashes are on special for 20% off with our Splish Splash Sparkle sale

I hope you enjoyed the card today and will come back again... please take a moment and leave a comment <3

Happy Crafting~ Cathy
