For my card I used the new Beauty and Song set. I stamped the sentiment in Hybrid black ink on Bristol white card stock and watercolored it. Once done I cut the panel down to 4" x 5 1/4" and spritzed with shimmer spray. I stamped the sentiment using embossing ink on black card stock and embossed in white. Cut to size. I adhered the entire panel onto top folding black note card.

Today I am sharing a card using a large Camellia stamp! I LOVE big flowers and they are so fun for coloring.

I stamped it on watercolor paper using my MISTI with Versamark ink and then embossed in white.

Once trimmed down to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (to cover a card base) I used liquid watercolors to color it.

Set it aside to dry.

In meantime stamp the sentiment on vellum and emboss in white. Cut to a strip to size and wrap around the watercolored panel, adhering the ends on the back. This way you don't need to use adhesive on the front.
