Avant Garden Birthday, Part II

I really, really am going to be sad to see this set go, can you tell? If you want it, you only have five days left to qualify for it before it's gone forever. And don't even get me started on the In Colors that will be retiring in a couple months! Whatever will we do without Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder? That's why I chose those colors for this card. (Cue the dirge for the background music.)

But seriously, it always pains me when fun stampin' goodies retire. The only thing that soothes the agony is the new stampin' goodies that replace them!

Here's the "How To"
 Greeting: Whisper White 3-3/8" x 4-1/8"
 Mat: Basic Black 3-1/2" x 4-1/4"
 Glimmer paper: 1" x 4"
 Card base: Mint Macaron 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored & folded at 4-1/4"
  1. Mask off 1-1/8" from center of greeting panel and stamp blossoms using Watermelon Wonder and Flirty Flamingo above and below mask. Stamp flower centers in Basic Black and leaves in Mint Macaron.
  2. Remove mask and stamp greeting in center using Watermelon Wonder.
  3. Attach greeting to mat.
  4. Use Best Badge punch to make a scalloped edge on glimmer paper. Center behind Basic Black mat, adhere, and trim ends even.
  5. Attach greeting to card base using dimensionals.
And there you have an easy-peasy card, ready to wow someone special!
