CAS(E) this Sketch #168

Over at the CAS(E) this Sketch blog their Sketch #168 I thought would be challenging but once I picked a stamp set that had matching dies from Clearly Besotted I knew what I had to do and was quite pleased that I used 75% of the stamps on the card and only that stamp and die set.

I paired it with my favorite Stampin UP ink and card stock and created two cards at once.

 I started off my using some inexpensive wire/jewerly cutters that I purchased from Walmart to detach my dies.
 I am using my Fiskars stamp press because the stamps in this Fancy Florals set have alot of sold images.
 I arranged all the buttons in the set solid and lined on my stamp press and began to stamp them in Crumb Cake ink on to Very Vanilla card stock.

After each time I stamped the group I turned the stamp set in different directions as to not get the same stamps close together.

The panel is sized 3 1/2 by 4 3/4.
 Since these dies are solid I needed to cut them out of the Very Vanilla card stock first then stamp them with my Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, and Crisp Cantaloupe ink.

I also used my stamp press for these stamps as well.
 I also stamped the inside panel and back of the card as well.
 Using some tape to add so string around the button panel.
 I poped the panel up on foam and also the flower and leaves.
Finished card.

I also poped the sentiment up, here is a close up.
