Another Thank You

This is one of the In Color assortment I made to send to my stamping friends in appreciation for their continued support. Without them, I couldn't afford my addiction hobby! I'd probably have to go into a Two-Step stamping program, or something, so I am very, very grateful for them!

Speaking of Two-Step stamping, the cute little butterfly is part of the Garden in Bloom set, which has  two and three step stamping! Since it's completely clear photopolymer, it's easy to line up the steps.

Flirty Flamingo and Watermelon Wonder look great together, and really pop against the black background. I made 24 of these cards in about two hours. I'm thinking I should make about a dozen more to have on hand.

  1. Attach DSP to larger Flirty Flamingo mat and then to card base.
