Kickoff - bloomin two cool

The colors of these two cool cards are so cheerful…sure to brighten someone's day! 

Bloomin - h

The Raspberry Ripple card base is layered with a plain 5-1/2" x 2" strip of More Mustard card stock. A Whisper White Apothecary Accent Framelit die-cut serves as the focal point for the stamping.

Kickoff - bloomin flowers

Creating the effortless flow of pretty flowers was easy.  I started with Raspberry Ripple and stamped a flower in the center and near both ends.  Then, I added two Tangerine Tango flowers just barely touching to the left of each Raspberry flower.  Finally, I filled in the remaining two spaces with a More Mustard flower.

Kickoff - bloomin scallop

I trimmed about an inch off the bottom of the card, then decorated it with the Scallop Edge Border Punch.  Inside the card, a 3/4" wide strip of International Bazaar Designer Series Paper gives some great contrast.

Kickoff - bloomin v

I really love the look of the sentiments!  They are both from the same Bloomin' Marvelous set that you can earn for FREE with your $50 order during Sale-A-Bration!

Kickoff - bloomin bow

I finished off both of the cards with some 1/8" Tangerine Tango Satin Ribbon.  This ribbon is one part of the awesome Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack that also includes Island Indigo and Pool Party flavors of the same ribbon, plus 36 coordination buttons!
