Floral Stamped Background

Hi Dreamers!
I thought I would share a few more of the cards I sent to Operation Write Home. The cards feature a floral stamped background in shades of yellow, orange, and taupe.

Stamps: Petal Parade from Stampin' Up
Inks: Adirondack inks
CS: white, brown, yellow, orange, Sahara Sand
Edge punch
Dots embossing folder


  • Stamp the floral stamps with 3 different inks staring with the larger images.  Fill in the blank spaces with the smaller images.  
  • Dry emboss the yellow CS with the dots folder
  • Edge punch a strip of brown CS
  • tie ribbon around card
  • Add sentiments

A few fun challenges for my Floral Background cards:
Stars and Stamps : ODB/Make your own background
