Springtime Bouquet

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne today with a pretty card today that could be used for a number of occasions.  I stamped a generic "for you" on it but think birthday, Mother's Day, thank you, etc.
What made this card fun to make is that it was just like arranging real flowers!
I ran the Spring Teacup Bouquet die through the Big Shot twice using white card stock.  This gave me two of every flower.
Next I colored them using Distress Oxide inks.
Think of all the color combinations you could get with this bouquet!
To get my scalloped strip, I used the third largest Nested Scalloped Square die and trimmed off the top and side, then cut the strip 1 1/2 inches wide.  I saved the other piece to use on another card.  I glued my strip to a white panel 4 x 5 1/4 inches.
I loaded this into my Misti and laid the teacup where I wanted it so I could position my sentiment.  I did not glue it to the card but now I knew where it would go on the card and I stamped the sentiment.
I glued one flower and leaf overhanging the teacup....
and used foam dots around the lower part of the back of the cup.  This gave me an easy way to insert the flowers "into" the cup.
By popping up the cup and leaving the top open I could arrange the flowers!  I used foam tape on the back of the panel to adhere it to a side fold A2 card base.
I love this die.  There are so many flowers that the variations are endless.  The dimension on this bouquet makes it truly special!
