You need to have 3 sheets of A5 card, some brads, gems, ribbon and flowers.

The pink piece of card is A5, folded to make an A6 card.

The brown card needs to be trimmed to 5 by 3 .

Take a piece of white card and stamp the background stamp from the Bubble Background set onto the white card, using brown ink.

Then cut the white card just a little smaller than the brown card so the brown card makes a nice border. I then took a little flower stamp and stamped in the bigger circles with a colour similar to the base cardstock and added brads and gems.

Make a flower embellishment, I punched out a scallop circle of the brown card stock and then inked a blossom, and then attached a little prima with a brad. I have also added a little gem to add a bit of glitz!

Check out the using inks in the Projects - How to use section

Then take a greeting stamp of your choice, I have taken the same colour ink as what I used for the background stamp.I then rounded off the corners with a punch.

Then slip the greeting in between the scalloped circled and the blossom and attach with a bit of glue.

Attach the flower embellishment to the card as shown and attach a circle clip and add a piece of ribbon for detail.

Then attach the stamped card to the brown card stock at an angle. I have just used double sided tape.

Then all you need to do is glue it to the card base, making sure that the brown cardstock is straight on, then you have an elegant looking card.
