Sometimes a small accent of color adds just the right touch.

Create a Whisper White card base cut at 8 1/2" x 5 1/2 inches and scored at 4 1/4".

Emboss the front half of the card base using the Tasteful Textiles embossing folder.

Die cut the smaller white cardstock piece--the central focus of the card front--using Nature's Thoughts Dies.

On the die cut white piece, use the Positive Thoughts stamp set and Pear Pizzazz ink to stamp the large leaf image three times. Do not re-ink the stamp! Stamp the first time with the image slanted to the left. Then, stamp again in the middle and again on the right. This is called "stamping off" and provides a lovely gradation of color.

Layer the die cut piece from Step 4 onto a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock cut at 3 1/8" x 4 5/8". Add this to the front of the card base.

Using Highland Heather ink, stamp the flower image on a scrap of white cardstock. Die cut this image. Also, die cut the center of the flower from a scrap of Highland Heather cardstock and adhere it to the center of the blossom.

Use dimensionals to add the flower to the lower right corner of the stamped leaves.
