This A2 size card features the Floral Essence Stamp Set and the coordinating Perennial Flower Punch from Stampin' Up!.  It was CASEd from one I saw on Pinterest made by Bonnie O'Neill.

The bottom mat was cut from Berry Burst CS.

For the top mat a cut a piece of Whisper White CS at 4-3/4" x 3-1/2" (slightly smaller than usual).

I cut 4 strips 1-1/4" x 3-3/4" from the following colors of cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Shaded Spruce, Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugarplum, glued them to the white piece, and then embossed the piece using the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder.

I stamped 2 each of the flower from the Floral Essence Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce, Rich Razzleberry & Elegant Eggplant Inks. I colored them using the Shaded Spruce, Rich Razzleberry, and Purple Posy Stampin' Blend Sets, and then used Tombow Glue to attach the 2 pieces together in the center.

The leaf clusters were stamped in Emerald Envy ink on Emerald Envy CS and then punched out using the Detailed Sprig Punch, and attached as shown using Tape Runner where necessary.

I glued a piece of Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon toward the bottom of the top piece.

The sentiment is from the Home To Roost Stamp Set and was stamped in Elegant Eggplant Ink, cut out with a frame die from the Lily Framelits Set, and pooped up with Dimensionals.

Lastly I used the same color Stampin' Blend Sets to color some Clear Faceted Gems and attached them as shown.

The completed top mat was attached to the bottom mat, and then the piece was attached to a White Card Base with Tape Runner.
