Maximize The Use of Stamps and MATCHING Dies

Hello friends!

I am popping in to share a fun project today.
But first, I want to show you a sweet photo.
My nephew 's kids held the party banners that I created for the family reunion.
 The family reunion of 30 people took place this July.

The kids were excited to be my models! Lucky me!

You already know how much it adds up to purchase stamps AND matching dies .... 
Today's card shows you that you CAN make it worthwhile to make that little "investment".

Floral Art Stamp & Die Bundle

 Let's start with the focal point...
I am using Floral Art Stamp and Die Bundle as an example.

thank you-007

 The Geo Frame was silver-embossed and then cut out.
There is Geo Frames Matching Die as well.
I then used a piece of Post-It note to mask the embossed border.
thank you-004

I only stamped small flowers and  kept it simple.

For the background, I decided to use kraft card stock.
This helps draw the eyes to the focal point (the hexagon).
Ding---> use the Floral Art matching die to create an extra embellishment. In this case, I used the silver glitter paper/washi tape for this purpose. Not only that they match the shape of the stamped flowers, they also add a WOW factor.
thank you-006

To go with the silver scheme, I added Silver Stickles to the flower center and that was it!

That's it for today! Hope you enjoy what I share!

I seem to remember seeing these to munchkins before...him, when he was born and her, at some sort of party. Where has the time gone. They're both growing so fast and all I do is grow older. Bah!
As for your card, it is unique and beautifully constructed. Love the embossed frame, sparkly flowers and the stenciling across the card. Lovely.
