I decided to work with the Sweet William Small Set pictured below...


Our Daily Bread also has a Sweet William set which perfectly nests with the Small William set...


And my project this week using the Sweet William Small set...


I stamped my Sweet Williams on white card stock with Antique Linen Distress Ink before cutting with the Spellbinder Blossom Three Dies. I then cut each petal, flipped the blossom over and used an embossing tool to break down the fibers in the paper petals. I use an old mouse pad for cushioning. This allows the petals to curve and pop up. I did this to both layers and put them together with dimensional foam before adding a pearl center. I stamped the sentiment using individual words from this set. This makes it super easy to customize your greeting!

Now next on the hop is Julie. She has a beautiful project to share! Thanks so much for hopping along with us! Blessings!
