One of the key features of this stamp set is the two-step stamping. One image is stamped in greens for the leaves and a separate image houses the florals. Don’t miss the video to see how Gina quickly and easily obtained multiple colors on the single floral stamp! 


The inside cover of this card is the perfect place to include a pocket for a gift card. Great for birthdays and also perfect for graduation cards and showers. You’ll find the gift card holder (pocket) cutting dimensions in today’s project sheet.

Gina’s the first one to tell you she loves fussy cutting (using her scissors) – she got that from me! We both find it therapeutic and allows you to look at images in an entirely new way. Consider snipping away branches and leaves to make smaller images to custom fit your project!
