Pressed Garden

Good morning and happy Wednesday!
Here's hoping you're having a great week and enjoying your summer. Our weather has been spectacular lately which means my stamping time diminishes a bit in favor of being outside to enjoy it. Good thing I have a little stash of cards I can share huh? lol!

Today's card is another one that uses the faux pressed flower technique. This time though, I folder embossed the larger background panel and layered another focal panel over the top. I think the fresh colors are kind of fun too.
So, the card base is a half sheet of Not Quite Navy. I layered the interior with a panel of Naturals Ivory since NQN is so dark, and then set it aside for a bit. The two background panels are Kiwi Kiss and Naturals Ivory.  I stamped the ivory with Garden Greetings in Not Quite Navy, Kiwi Kiss and Crushed Curry then adhered it to the Kiwi Kiss panel and ran it through my Big Shot with the Sizzix Plaid embossing folder. A little Kiwi  ribbon wrapped lengthwise around the embossed panel and it's ready to be added to the card base.
Finally, the square focal point panel is done with the same Naturals Ivory and Kiwi Kiss, but I added a layer of So Saffron in there too. A few dimensionals pop it up off the card and a button tied with thread round things out.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a fabulous Wednesday!
