The sakura blossom is a lovely Japanese flower and is known as a cherry blossom in some parts of the world. “Sakura” is derived from the Japanese word for “bloom” – “saku.” In the United States, tourists travel to our capital, Washington D.C., to see the flowers bloom at the annual Cherry Blossom Festival. This stamp set features layered cherry blossoms and leaves, and the accompanying dies have score details to help you create 3D flowers.

Here's how the set layers:
