The cards below are created using the Botanicals suite of products, NEW on pages 26 and 27 in the 2016 Stampin' UP!

I've used the Botanical Gardens designer paper, the Botanical Blooms stamp set, the Botanical Gardens Cardstock pack, the Botanical Builder Framelits and the Botanical Gardens Washi Tape!

I die cut a flower in the 4×4 Whisper White piece of cardstock to allow the Hello Honey cardstock to show through, then stamped one of the Botanical Blooms flower images in the center!  Such an easy touch that lends a lot to the card!
