A card using one of the new Summer Mini sets.

The card I'm going to share with you now was made a little over a week ago but I've just not made enough time (while I've been thinking about it anyway) to share it with you all. Finally I've found that time.

Live Your Dreams 1

To make this card I've started out with a Soft Sky base card which I randomly stamped the butterfly stamp from the Live Your Dreams stamp set using Soft Sky Ink.

I have then cut 2 separate pieces of the Afternoon Tea DSP and torn the bottom edge of one. I have adhered them together and then tied Groovy Guava double-stitched ribbon around them before adhering them to the base card.

Using the flower image I have inked the flower with Groovy Guava carefully using the inkpad and the stem with Wild Wasabi being careful not to mix the colours. This is then stamped onto the Whisper White card. I then inked just the flower heads in Groovy Guava and stamped them onto a scrap of Whisper White card and then inked the leaves with Wild Wasabi and stamped them onto scrap also. These pieces have then been cut out and layered on top of the full image to add some dimension. This piece is then layered onto Chocolate Chip card and then mounted to the base card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Final step is to stamp the Thanks in Chocolate Chip ink onto Whisper White card and punch out with the Small Oval Punch. Punch a Large Oval from a scrap of Soft Sky. Layer together and then mount onto card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Supplies:
Stamp sets: Live Your Dream
Card: Soft Sky, Chocolate chip, Whisper White, Afternoon Tea DSP
Ink: Groovy Guava, Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky
Accessories: Groovy Guava double-stitched ribbon, Large & Small Oval punches.
