Don't you think this is a beautiful way to tell someone that you care?

There are so many ways to show someone you care, but making a special card will leave a lasting impression. This gorgeous Flowering Rain Boots card is a standout thanks to the easel technique - an oldie but a goodie! 

Flowering Rainboots bundle

Whether it rains or shines outside, you'll love using the Flowering Rain Boots bundle. Perfect for cardmaking, it includes heartfelt sentiments and realistic imagery that are perfect for building a card-front scene. And the garden tools and flower images create endless possibilities: stamp daisies repeatedly to create a border; mask off tulips to add a single cluster to the watering can; stamp boots, pot, and watering in any of the flowers—it's up to you! This set is also great for watercoloring. You can create colorful projects on rainy days and make the shiny days even brighter.

Here's just one possibility using this fun bundle:
