I had already stamped two Amazing Grace chalkboard pieces so I quickly selected coordinating paper.
I used a Die Cuts With a View matstack called Garden Party and selected a nicely raised, embossed, and glittered paper with butterflies and flowers.
I cut the mat for an ivory card and backed it with a Bazzill Basics Herbal Garden Medium green layer. I used the same green to layer the chalkboard stamp. This stamp was one of my MUST HAVE's at the Creating Keepsakes convention I attended in April with my stepmom & stepsister!
By fussy-cutting the flowers I was able to get some depth to the card in addition to the lace behind the chalkboard.
A sheer bow on the bouquet and gems for the flower centers are the finishing touches.
Below is a close-up of the fussy-cut flowers.
I can always use the other piece of the mat I used to cut the flowers as a layer on another card.
The gems are lovely green Michael's gems.
Now father and daughter will receive similar cards.
