Step 1:  Fold a 6" x 9 1/2" piece of Deep Purple cardstock in half to form an A6 card
Step 2: Use the Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the Flower Arranging image on a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of white cardstock, color with Copic Markers, trim to 3" x 4 1/2"
Step 3:  Place the Cathedral Windows stencil face down on the large platform of a die cut machine, spritz a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of white cardstock with a fine mist of water and carefully line the paper up over the stencil, place a rubber embossing mat over the paper, add two unused cutting plates and run the sandwich through the machine
Step 4:   Place the embossed image face up and use 1/2" stencil brushes to add the purple ink over the design
Step 5:   Adhere the Flower Arranging image to the embossed background
Step 6: Wrap the ribbon around the left edge and tape the ends in the back, tie a small bow from another piece of ribbon, use FabriTac to glue the bow on the ribbon
Step 7:  Adhere the image to the card front

What a cute stamp for spring-- looks like purple crocus. Like the green ribbon with your color scheme. Such a cute stamp and card.
