Picture Perfect Easel Card with Square Framelits

The Picture Perfect Stamp Set is one of the most beautiful stamp sets that I have ever seen. I've been fond of 2-step stamping since my very first inky finger, but the hummingbird in this stamp set takes 2-step to a whole new level. Add to that the transparency of photopolymer and you can stamp a colorful hummingbird in just minutes.

This easel card using the Square Framelits collection showcases the hummingbird and the rose to their best advantage. Find out how to make this WOW card by following my video tutorial above. All the supplies you'll need for this project are available for purchase HERE!
