So Very Kind of You & A TUTORIAL

Just when you thought I had forgotten all about the Occasions Catalog products, I'm back today with a card packed with some of my favorite Occasions Catalog goodies!  

To be quite honest, I didn't even know if I liked this card when I finished it a couple of weeks ago.  So it sat and sat on my display table until one day last week, I looked at and it hit me that I really liked it.  I know it might sound crazy, but it's true.  LOL!

For this So Very Kind of You Card, I whipped out my Big on You and Petal Potpourri stamp sets and the Flower Medallion Punch and started crafting.  I also grabbed some of my color faves--Coastal Cabana (so going to miss this retiring color!), Melon Mambo, and Basic Black.  I just love these BIG sentiments.

I used two of the Petal Potpourri stamps to achieve the flower look.  Who knew that one of the four flowers is perfect for filling in another one with color?  I've seen it done a couple of times and it finally clicked that people were double stamping those two flower stamps.

I stamped my flower in Melon Mambo a bit off center because I love that unpolished look about the two flowers together.  And for my petals, I punched them using the same Flower Medallion Punch, but I cut off two of the leaves, scored them, and...wallah!...adhered them to the back of my flower.  

Want to get this 2-step stamped look?

I really like this card.  It's simple, a little messy and packed with color!  I hope you like it too and make one of your own to say thank you to someone who's done something special for you.
