Garden Whimsy Variations

I love the Garden Whimsy Stamp Set and have had fun making several card variations using it.

On the card above, I wanted to create a border, but didn't have the coordinating jumbo roller or ribbon that goes with the set.  So, I used the small ladybug stamp to create a border and topped it off with a small stripe of Blue Bayou Cardstock, which looks like a ribbon.  I stamped the butterfly and the swirl, using Purely Pomegranate.  The card base is made with Soft Sky, and the faux ribbon is made of Blue Bayou Cardstock.  

This is a card that I used to demo with beginning card-makers.  It was fairly easy and quick and used several of the "In Colors" from that year.  Gluing, mounting, and stamping were not hard for beginners and they left with a great little everyday card.  I also liked how the swirl looks like the flight path of our cute little butterfly.
