Pretty Peonies

Pretty Peony is a wonderful two-step Stampin' Up set, which allows you to stamp the solid image in one color and come back with the outline image in a different complementary color.

Below is a photo of the solid and outline/highlight stamps from the Pretty Peony set.

I used the lighter color ink (Blushing Bride) on the solid stamp; and then I overstamped the image with outline/highlight stamp (using Cherry Cobbler ink).
Before stamping the flowers, I used an old background stamp, inked in Crumb Cake, to create the subtle effect of woven material.

The background paper is Stampin' Up's Spice Cake, which is a new Designer Series Paper pack in the current UK Spring Mini Catalogue. I've also used Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Pool Party and Soft Suede card stock on this card design, along with Soft Suede, Blushing Bride, Cherry Cobbler, and Pear Pizzazz inks.

Choose your favorite sentiment stamps to use with this card. I've used SU Happiest Birthday Wishes and SU Something to Celebrate.
