Hello everyone! Have you seen the gorgeous One in a Million stamp set from Clearly Besotted? I picked this up recently and couldn’t wait to make a card with it!

The way the One in a Million stamp set is built, it allows you to create a beautiful floral arrangement on your card – without the guess work! This set has two floral corner stamps, plus a bunch of great sentiments.

I colored them in with Copic markers, but you could also recreate this card using any other coloring medium you like best! The colors I used are listed below:

Originally I planned on creating a one-layer card with these flowers… you’ll see in the video why that didn’t happen! I instead fussy cut the flowers out and popped them up off of a navy card base. The navy serves almost as a “neutral” and the intense color contrasts against the flowers beautifully.

There are many great sentiments in the One in a Million stamp set; but since I was planning on having a die cut greeting, I used Memory Box’s Spectacular Happy Birthday die. I die cut it multiple times from Surf Blue cardstock and layered them together for a dimensional effect. You can see from the photo how the dimensional adds so much depth to the design.

To further enhance the background, I used a few dot stamps to add texture. The dark blue dots are from the Celebrate set which is actually retired now; but a good substitute for the dots are the ones in Flower Friend (also from Simon). The larger white dots are from Simon’s Best Mom Ever set and I filled them in with a white colored pencil.

For a final bit of embellishing, I used Nuvo Drops to add dimensional details to the flowers, in addition to a few swipes of Spectrum Noir clear glitter. The glitter is very subtle and adds just a little hint of sparkle depending on how the light hits it!
