I think this might be my favorite card I've made in a LONG time! Super tickled at how this one turned out. And it was pretty easy, too! Here's how I did it, plus a fun variation you'll enjoy making as well. It's not as hard as you'd think! You can use any floral stamps and any large word stamp for this card. I used the Sale-A-Bration 2016 stamp set, Botanicals for You.
First, lay a Framelit or stencil down and trace your desired shape VERY lightly with a pencil.
Then, stamp your largest flower in your boldest color, randomly around the shape. Try not to be too uniform with the spacing.
Continue with the medium flower, again making sure that you are varying the position slightly, keeping it random--and leaving some space for the final flowers.
Stamp the smallest flowers in the lightest ink color, filling in the remaining gaps around the frame. Then add a few leaves.
Once you've finished stamping and the ink is totally dry, erase the penciled marks. You might still be able to see them under some of the stamped places, but they should be pretty unobtrusive.
Then you can finish it off by stamping any large sentiment in the center. I suggest a Stamp-A-Majigg to get the exact placement you want, or use clear photopolymer stamps (CRAZY about those).
Here's another variation--for this one I took the same Framelit I'd traced around and cut out my sentiment with it, layering it up on dimensionals. The floral frame becomes a mat behind my words. This would be a good trick up your sleeve if you accidentally mess up on stamping the words directly onto the card base of that first design!

I can't wait to do a bunch more of these floral frames in a bunch of different colors!! Please leave me a comment if you enjoyed this tutorial. I work hard to post regularly here at Song of My Heart, completely free, and it keeps me encouraged when you drop me a line or purchase from my online store. I appreciate your visit today--do come again, friend!
