Blissful Bouquet Alternatives

The Blissful Bouquet kit designs are beautiful, but you don't have to use the elements of the kit exactly as instructed. In fact you only need to add a couple of products from your stash to make an entirely different card.

Here's one I put together in five minutes - it's so easy when most of the elements are already prepared for you!

First I cut a piece of Watermelon Wonder cardstock to 5 1/4" x 4". I stamped the top and bottom of the cardstock using Basic Gray ink and one of the borders from the Bordering Blooms stamp set. (You could also use the smallest flower from the Blissful Bouquet stamp set to do the same thing.)

Then I cut a circle from Hello Honey using one of the Circles framelits to use as a mat behind the round flower background paper, and attached it with dimensionals to the Watermelon Wonder. I stamped the 'thanks' from the Blissful Bouquet stamp set onto the green banner and attached it to the bottom of the circle.

Finally I attached the whole thing to the largest card base in the kit.

Now if you're looking for more ideas, Tracy Elsom - a member of our ASI team - creates alternatives for each Paper Pumpkin kit that is released.
