Today I have a card I made using Becky Oehler's new Folk Filigree set. This includes tons of tiny bold flower elements, plus some banners and birds for those of you who like coloring. Get your ink pads ready! I started with the banner in the middle with the intention of creating some floral garlands around it, and it just evolved form there. As you can see, I did not make it perfectly symmetrical, but I did stamp opposite parts of the design as I went to keep it balanced. First, the semicircle garland above and below. Then I added the larger flowers, then two-stepped the flower centers, then eventually filling the mat out with springs and berries and smaller flowers until I was pleased with the look. I perched the birdies on either sides on the arrow and popped up the little heart.
