MHK Designs "Open Bloom"

Thank you for stopping by for
MHK Designs June Release Blog Hop - Day 2

Today I used the "Open Bloom" digital stamp set to make this pretty card, as well as using a paper from MHK Designs "Worn & Weathered Pink" digital paper pack 

I printed the flower and sentiment on the card, and printed an additional flower the same size to cut out and layer on top of the one in the card using foam tape for dimension.  I colored them with Distress Markers.  
The card is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square.  I adhered a layer of pink cardstock to the front of the card.  I cut the printed cardstock slightly smaller than the card and then using a Sizzix square die I cut a square out of the middle about 1/2" bigger than the window I will be cutting.  I adhered that to the pink cardstock.  Next, with the card laying OPEN I used the next smallest Sizzix square die and placed it inside the first square to create a window for the flower to show through.
