This DOstamperSTARS Challenge inspired me to create this card with just one of the Stampin' Rewards Stamp Set, the Gift of Love Stamp Set.  This set is beautifully designed to be easily used to create an endless variety of cards.  Gift of Love is a three step stamp set and it is so easy to create beautiful designs!  I just love it!

To get started with the fun you will need Stampin' Up! Gift of Love and Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Sets. 

Cut two Cherry Cobbler Cardstock 6 1/4 x 5, Whisper White Cardstock 6 x 4 3/4, and Watercolor paper 6 x 4 3/4.  Inks used Rose Red, Garden Green, and Memento Tuxedo Black.

Measure with pencil on watercolor paper and Whisper White Cardstock border of three sides at 1 inch and 1 1/2 on bottom.

Repeat measurements on the back of the front of the card.

To create mask of flower image stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and use paper snips to cut out image.

Start stamping bouquet outline of flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black.  To create overlap first stamp flowers in the front, then place mask over image with repositional tape and stamp over mask.  Repeat pattern with second and third stage coloring.  To color flower bouquet stamp off with Rose Red ink using the second stage stamp (the stamp without the leaves) to create the lighter images.  Ink the third stage stamp in Garden Green and Rose Red ( the stamp fits perfectly around the flower images, so easy!).

 Stamp with Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink.  Place mask on images before stamping.

Cut out measured square of the colored watercolor paper and the front of the card to create window.

Repeat measurements on one of the Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and cut out window.

For inside of card, stamp flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black ink in a corresponding arrangement to the front of the card.  Use the measured pencil outline of window as a guide.

The cut out window from the front of the card and the Cherry Cobbler Cardstock is used for the inside tag .

Cut the width of the Cherry Cobbler Cardstock window to 2 inches and stamped watercolor paper window to 1 7/8 inches.  Place Cherry Cobbler Cardstock in Scalloped Tag Topper and cut off top of watercolor paper to fit on cardstock.

Die cut sentiments with Layering Ovals Framelits and stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Repeat and mat in Cherry Cobbler Cardstock.

Adhere front sentiment to Cherry Cobbler Cardstock strip.  Adhere matted inside sentiment to tag and center tag with dimensionals on to inside of card to correspond with flower outline images.  Add 1/4" Cherry Cobbler Ribbon and Antique Brad (retired) to tag. 

Attach matted front sentiment to front watercolor paper frame.  Center sentiment to cover inside sentiment when card is closed.

Adhere watercolor paper to card front with dimensionals.  The inside tag shows beautifully through the front window!

The inside tag is placed to match the stamped outline of the flowers.  Give this peek a boo card to someone special and watch a smile grow on their face!
