One of my all-time favorite retired Stampin' Up! sets was Fifth Avenue Floral…do you remember that one?  When I saw the beautiful flower line images in the Secret Garden set, it reminded me of my ole Fun With Fifth Avenue card…

So I decided to recreate that fun layered outlines look with the new Secret Garden set from the Spring Catalog.

Oh yeah!  That's the look I loved from the old set!  It's so pretty and easy to create!

Starting with a piece of 5-1/2 x 2-1/2" Whisper White card stock, created the layered background in three steps:

  • I used Pacific Point for the large flower first, stamping 3 times in a triangle shape. 
  • Then I used Old Olive for the medium flower, again stamping 3 times.

  • Finally, I stamped the smallest, pointed flower in Bashful Blue to fill in all the white spaces. 

I layered that piece on a 5-1/2" x 2-3/4" Old Olive layer, and adhered it to the Pacific Point card front that I had already embossed with the Needlepoint Border Texture Impressions Folder.

The sentiment is from Bring On The Cake, inked in Pacific Point on Whisper White, then punched out with the Decorative Label Punch.  A second Bashful Blue Decorative Label shape was cut in half and adhered to the back before being popped up with Dimensionals. 

The cute White Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon is attached with a Mini Glue Dot.
