Painted Petals and Blooms

I have always struggled with how to use the bolder designer prints, but when I received the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper, I just couldn't resist playing with it.  The coordinating stamp set really made a difference. I think this is one of my favorite cards of those we made at my February stamping class. Admittedly, I didn't realize when I first designed the card that the Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon is amongst my retired items, but you could always use the Blackberry Bliss Stitched Satin Ribbon, although it's slightly narrower, or the Wild Wasabi Seam Binding Ribbon. I really liked having the photopolymer stamps for this set because it made it so easy to line up the various components on this piece. To round the corners on the stamped piece, I used the Envelope Punch Board.
