You can check how I used this awesome bundle on my blog here.

Start with a with a Highland Heather cs card base. Cut a Calypso Coral cs panel, Basic White cs panel, and six different Flowering Cactus DSP squares.

Stamp the two cacti from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in 2nd generation (stamped off) Pear Pizzazz ink & Mint Macaron ink on the Basic White cs panel. Glue the stamped Basic White cs panel to the Calypso Coral cs panel and then glue both to the card front. Glue the DSP squares to the left edge of the stamped Basic White cs panel (with the two flower DSP patterns slightly overlapping the others).

Stamp the sentiment from the Many Messages stamp set using the Stamparatus in Memento Black ink on Basic White cs and then die cut with the Message die. Loop Calypso Coral linen thread on the back of the die cut sentiment using Stampin’ Seal. Cut a Highland Heather cs layer panel. Die cut a Basic White cs scalloped rectangle with the Scalloped Contours Dies. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the die cut sentiment to the scalloped rectangle, glue them to the Highland Heather cs layer panel, and then glue them to the center of the card front slightly overlapping the DSP squares. Add felt flowers around the sentiment and Genial Gems to the card front.

Don’t forget to add a Basic White cs inside panel to write your message. Stamp the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set in Memento Black ink and add a strip of DSP to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
