Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!

I will be so sad to see the Blackberry Bliss In-Color retiring from our products and that's what we are featuring today for our Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. Here's my pretty card featuring this color:

I let the Bohemian Designer Paper do most of the work for me and then added the 3-step flower image and hand-cut from the Picture Perfect stamp set. Once that was done, all I had to do was add the sentiment and White Perfect Accents in the background:

Card Steps:
  • Card Base: Blackberry Bliss Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score in the center at 5-1/2" and fold.
  • Layer #2: :Whisper White Cardstock 4" x 5-1/4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Designer Paper 3-3/4" x 5". Cut at an angle in the center. Remove 1/4" from each angled side to create a space in the center that measures 1/2" when you glue to two pieces in place. Glue each piece in place using Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  • Sentiment: Stamp the sentiment in the space between the designer paper layers using Blackberry Bliss Ink.
  • Flower & Leaves: Stamp the flower and leaves using Blushing Bride, Blackberry Bliss,  and Pear Pizzazz Inks. Hand-cut and glue the flower in place using Stampin' Dimensionals. Tuck the leaves under the flower.
  • Bling: Add White Perfect Accents in the background.
