I can thoroughly recommend these dies and stamps they are fabulous!

Today sharing another of my samples for Stamps by Me.

Step by Step

1. Joined 2 6 x 6 white square cards and scored the front of both cards in half to create a double gatefold.
2. On the inside I matted and layered black and red card.
3. The topper I stamped the sentiments with Versafine and clear embossed then stamped the larger roses from the Much Loved Friends stamp set.
4. For both front panels I first adhered black ribbon to both sides before matting and layering black and red card.
4. I then stamped the roses with Distress Oxides in lucky clover and fired brick.
5. To finish off I added splats to all toppers and added dragonflies to each panel.
