Today I am sharing a gorgeous card inspired by one I saw from Lee Ann Greff.

This is what the back of the card looks like.

Score the 11″ x 3 1/4″ Lost Lagoon cardstock at 5 1/2″ and then punch a circle with the 2 1/2″ circle punch.

Adhere the Lost Lagoon layer to the back of the 5 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.

Next adhere (2) 5 1/2″ x 1/2″ strips of the Something Borrowed Designer Series Paper to the card base front.

Adhere the 5 1/2″ x 3″ Whisper White cardstock to the card centered between the strips of designer paper.

Stamp the detailed image inside the punched circle with Lost Lagoon ink.

Stamp the 2nd image in Lost Lagoon ink, but be sure to stamp off before stamping over the 1st image to create a lighter color.

Stamp the 3rd image in Soft Sky ink to complete the flower base.

I stamped the stem in Crumb Cake ink and the greeting in Lost Lagoon ink to complete the image.

To create the tag on the card front I stamped the greeting in Lost Lagoon ink and punched out with the 3/4″ circle punch. I layered this on a Crumb Cake punchedĀ  7/8″ scallop circle.
