Because I Care Hydrangea

I have been making more clean and simple cards lately.  I really like the crisp look as well as the ease of making one.
This flower is from the Hostess Level 1 set, Because I Care.  It was stamped in Always Artichoke ink on Certainly Celery card stock.    
The greeting comes from the Watercolor Trio stamp set.
The scallop border punch was used on the front edge.  A narrow strip of Always Artichoke card stock (about 1/2" wide) was adhered behind the scallop edge.
Here's a tip  for getting the artichoke strip placed accurately:
Place a small dab of Dotto on the back of the artichoke card stock.  Adhere it to the inside of the card back along the edge.
Place your permanent adhesive on the back of the scallops and then close the card, pressing the adhesive down onto the narrow strip.  Open the card and rub the Dotto off the card.

Hope you enjoy this clean and simple card.
Thanks for stopping by.
