I made this card using the stamp set called Art Gallery. This stamp set has coordinating dies called Floral Gallery but because they have been in the catalog for a while, there is no bundle discount. Even without a discount, it is still one of my favorite sets. One of the great things about this stamp set has lots of nice greetings that you could use for any occasion.
This stamp set is a two-step stamp set. This means that it takes two or more stamps to make one image. I stamped the first flower using Bermuda Bay ink and the second part of the flower using Pool Party. I stamped the stem in Granny Apple Green ink and cut them both using the coordinating dies. I cut two rectangles out using the Deckled Rectangle dies. One was in Bermuda Bay card stock and the other in Basic White and layered them together. I glued the flower on top.
Next, I took a piece of Pool Party card stock and ran it through my Cut & Emboss Machine using the Hive 3D embossing folder. I am not exactly sure how it happened, but the card stock must have moved inside it because it got double embossed. I decided I liked the way it looked so I left it. I wrapped a piece of Baker’s Twine around it and adhered it to a Pool Party card base. Then I added the other pieces on top. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink and heat embossed it using White Embossing Powder. Then I cut it out using the coordinating die. I used Dimensionals to add the sentiment strip to the card. Lastly, I added some Glossy Dots.
