Welcome back for Day Two of Flourishes March sneaks! Today we’re showing you another gorgeous set that coordinates with a Spellbinders die. The set is Botanical Bookplates Vol. 1

Botanical Bookplates 1


…and the coordinating die is the Tailor-Made Classic Bookplate Template die.

FABULOUS combination, aren’t they?

For my card, I first stamped the image on Classic White  card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with these Copic collections:

Evergreen Collection:

Lilac Collection:

Robin’s Egg Collection:

Then I cut it out with the die and sponged the edges with some Antique Linen Distress Ink. Here’s a close up.

After I put my card base together, I did some stitching, stamped the sentiment, tied on some ribbon, and popped the image up on some foam dots.
