hello beautiful

How I design:
1. Cut out three banners (large, medium and small) and arranged them in  group.
2. Add some faux stitching simply by piercing the holes and connecting the dots with a black fine pen.
3. Stamp the sentiment in the oval die cut, lightly distressed the edges.
4. Assemble the stamped and cut flowers. Add gem.
5. Adhere the oval sentiment with pop dots.
Tips: Choosing paper from the same collection makes it easy to make the design look cohesive.  Faux stitching is another easy and fun way to add details to a card.
