The first card is an over the top card. Lots of layers, embellishments, and pretty colors. I love the matching envelope too. That just makes it extra special.

Botanical Prints Now or Wow Flash Cards
If you love Now or Wow cards, these are wonderful to create by simply tearing a 4 ¼” x 6″ piece of Designer Series Paper in half. Suddenly you have 2 great pieces to add to a card! I used a couple of Flash Card pieces in Mint Macaroon and Whisper White to make my focal images.

I had A LOT to share today! Whew, I’m beat! I hope that you were inspired and could see all the value in the Botanical Prints Product Medley. I have a ton of Designer Paper and those copper bee embellishments that I can continue to create with.

I think combining these images with other sentiments will stretch it even further. Is your brain spinning with ideas like mine is?
