Ironically, the ‘Just Because’ card I chose to highlight this week uses the same Stamp Set I used last week. I don’t think I could’ve planned that even if I tried – lol.
Featured on page 27 of the July/August 2020 Seasonal Idea Book, this card is super simple to make and I even made a couple of slight adjustments to fit my needs.

Cut and assemble the background pieces. Cut and stamp the Floral pieces.
Stamp on the White Daisy background using Almond Ink. Assemble the Floral cluster next. I used 3D Foam Tape to attach the Flowers but not the Leaves.
Stamp with White Daisy Ink and Heat Set.
The directions actually call for Embossing the sentiment but I chose to keep it super simple for now.
Attach the Silver Thread using a Glue Dot under the Flowers. Wrap some more thread around the Dovetailed piece approximately 7x before knotting. I attached this piece using 3D Foam Tape.
Attach the Sparkles to the Flower centers and that’s it!
I have decided that this is one of my favorite Stamp Sets. I may take the time to create several more of these using different colors. So fun! I’d love to see what you do with this set, too!
