Card measures 5.5”x 5.5”
120# white cardstock was cut with a portrait orientation at 5.5”.  Scor paper in landscape orientation at 5.5”

Select the mat from Cut Mat Creation Paper Collection and trim to 5.5” x 5.5”.   The mat has so many layers that there is no need to add additional cardstock layers. The center had a flower that competed with the fuchsia flowers so I used a circle die to cut the center design from the mat and I will save it for another project.  Using the same paper collection, I cut some paper to place under the open circle that would compliment the fuchsia flowers. The layers were adhered with double sided tape.

The Cascading Fuchsia flowers were stamped using Memento Espresso Truffle Ink.  I cut the flowers using the coordinating Cascading Fuchsia Die.   The blossom petals were sponged with Memento Lilac Posies Ink and tipped with Memento Sweet Plum Ink.   The sepal of the fuchsia was sponged with Memento Bamboo Leaves and tipped with Memento Olive Grove ink.   For the leaves, I used the Classic Leaf Cling Stamp Set and Classic Leaf Die.   The flowers and leaves were spritzed with water and shaped using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. They were allowed to dry.   They were assembled and adhered to my card using Art Institute Glue.   I love how it dries clear!  I applied a small amount of Star Dust Stickles to catch a little stardust magic!

The sentiment tag was cut from the Cut Mat Creation Paper Collection.   I tied a bow with some Baker’s Twine and adhered the tag with a Foam Dot. 

This fabulous stamp set can be used for so many occasions!

Thank you for stopping by!  Come back tomorrow to see my second project I created for the Heartfelt Creations design team Call!
