Mama Elephant Designer Series - Freestyle Florals & Zenith Borders

Hi everyone! I have a card up today both here and on the Mama Elephant blog, featuring the new Freestyle Florals and Zenith Borders. Both stamp sets are incredibly versatile and work well alone or together!

I started by stamping one of the border stamps from Zenith Borders with Hazel pigment ink on light brown paper to create a tone on tone look for my background.

I stamped some of the floral images from Freestyle Florals on watercolor paper, then cut them out with the coordinating dies. I painted the florals with my watercolors.

I layered my florals on my background, adhering some of them with regular adhesive and some with foam adhesive to add interest and dimension. I created a little happy birthday banner with the word stamps in Three Amigos.

Here's my finished card, and the pretty flowers paired with a subtle background and a simple sentiment make it perfect for a friend's birthday!

Thanks for joining me today!
