Look, but don't touch! That's my motto when it comes to my Graphic 45 paper! If there is any one specific item that I collect/hoard it's G45. It's the kind of paper that really is too pretty to use! I keep it stored separately from all my other papers - honestly it's hidden away in the "special" drawer! It's patterns are often hard to find and seemingly, it's N-E-V-E-R on sale.

For today's card, I "spared a square!" This card uses just ONE 5 1/4" x 4" piece of the Botanical Tea Graphic 45 collection. It's proof that a little does go a long way.
Here is a closer look at some of the pages in the Botanical Tea collection by Graphic 45:
The base of this A2 size card is Pear Pizzazz cardstock. I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" sheet of Botanical Tea paper from the G45 collection and adhered it directly to the Pear Pizzazz card base. I used a small piece of the same Botanical Tea paper to make a diagonal strip across the bottom the card for contrast. Using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Rectangles Dies, I cut a medium sized rectangle from Pear Pizzazz cardstock. I cut a nesting rectangle from Whisper White cardstock. On this Whisper White rectangle in Pear Pizzazz ink I stamped the sentiment. I adhered these layered rectangles to the center of the card.
Using White Stampin' Emboss Powder I heat embossed a variety of flowers (similar here) on Blushing Bride cardstock and Flirty Flamingo cardstock. But, you can use any flower stamp set for a similar effect. I adhered the flowers usingStampin' Dimensionals. I die cut leaves from green glimmer paper (company unknown) to give the flowers additional sparkle. These leaves were adhered with regular adhesive underneath the flowers.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
