Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's Forever Blossoms edition! The "Crew" is made up of a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world who pick a stamp set or bundle to highlight on the first and third Mondays of each month, with a bonus hop if there is a fifth Monday. If you landed here from Nikki Spencer's blog, My Sandbox, welcome! There are nine of us today, so follow the links for more inspiration!
The Forever Blossoms stamp set and bundle are found on page 16 of the Mini catalog and are part of the gorgeous Parisian Blossoms Suite.
I wanted to make a sweet card for a wedding, and this suite (see what I did there?) is perfect!
My original idea was to cover the entire front with the Parisian Flourish embossed panel, but then I had the problem of the greeting kind of getting lost. I chopped off part so the Flirty Flamingo base showed and heat embossed the greeting in white.
But THEN it looked kind of ... choppy ... with a harsh edge. So I trimmed off a bit more and added a Delicate Lace die cut edge. That did the trick!
And, of course I had to emboss the envelope flap to match! I love the the Spring feel, and Punxutawney Phil predicts an early Spring this year, yay!
