I really like the sample card in the Sale-a-Bration Brochure on p.18, so I decided to see if I could duplicate the look. It was pretty easy, really, especially with the Lily Framelits Dies that will be available to purchase March 1-31 during the SAB Coordination Promotion. You can find more info about that promo in my February 5 post, here. Let's get started. Full Instructions are on my blog.

- WW Thick CS cut on the vertical and scored at 5-1/2, Highland Heather CS 4 x 5-1/4, Highland Heather Gingham Gala DSP, 5 x 3-3/4, WW or Shimmery White CS (enough to stamp three lily flowers), and WW CS, roughly 3-1/2 square - can be trimmed later if necessary
- Adhere Gingham DSP to Highland Heather CS mat with Snail
- Die-cut a circle through both layers using the third largest plain circle from the Layering Circles Framelits, centered horizontally and slightly higher than center vertically
- Stamp lily flowers in Crushed Curry* on WW or Shimmery CS, being careful not to over-ink your stamp, or you will not see the detail on these Distinktive stamps. If your pad is juicy, use a sponge dauber to ink your stamp and your Stamparatus to stamp a few times, if necessary; stamp the tops of the stems onto the flower bases and fussy-cut (or, after March 1, die-cut with Lily Framelits)
- Make a mark on the square piece of WW CS where your circle begins and get an idea where you want your flowers to line up. Stamp stems that will show through circle in Pear Pizzazz or Old Olive; line up with circle "window" and tape to the back of the Highland Heather/Gingham layers.
- Add smaller Lilies with Glue Dots and large Lily with a Glue Dot at the base and a Dimensional near the top.
- Wrap ribbon around these layers and tie separate knot or bow
- Stamp desired greeting in Highland Heather (I used a greeting from Fable Friends), die-cut or punch out and add with Dimensionals
- Adhere to front of card base with liquid glue, decorate inside, if desired; add embellishments, if desired (I used retired Candy Dots).
