Beautiful Promenade

The Petal Promenade Suite puts the “sweet” in romance! I love the way the inside of this card serves as a side bar for the front, and these beautiful two step florals from the Beautiful Promenade stamp set are a real show stopper in Blackberry Bliss ink, pair it with the Granny Apple Green leaves for an elegant finish. I saw a similar card on Pinterest posted by Stamper Dog and really loved this technique so I’m sure I’ll be using it on many future projects.

You start with a 7½ x 5½ inch card base, scored at 4¼ so the top of the card is smaller than the bottom. To stamp the flowers I used the Stamparatus and turned my card stock around because the Stamparatus has really become a crutch for me, I rarely stamp anything without it. While you have you flower stamp inked with Blackberry Bliss stamp the inside panel, do the same using Granny Apple Green for the leaves.

For the sentiment I used the adorable “Happy Birthday Friend” stamp from the Darling Label Punch Box and my my layering circles to work to finish it off.
