The Stampin' Up! Back to Back Blooms Stamp Set is ideal for creating bold and detailed floral images. This is a Reversible Two-Step Stampin' set -- it allows you to add depth, texture, and dimension to your stamped images. For this card, however, I went with a scaled-back simpler look by stamping the outline stamp in a somewhat tone-on-tone color scheme directly to DSP in like colors.

On Layer #3 Petal Pink DSP, stamp two (2) of the large flower image directly on the DSP in Mango Melody Ink (these will be hidden by the layers on top, so stamp the images centrally to add to the background)

Stamp the sentiment on white cardstock in Old Olive ink; trim the sentiment to size, and adhere to the top of the card front
