Mother's Day Card #2

Here is my second Mother's Day card. This one was fun because I got to play with the flowers from the Stampin' Up! "Pretties" kit.

I didn't come up with this layout. I saw it on SplitCoastStampers by user name sf9erfan. I made a few subtle changes but for the most part it would blend in with her cards!!

I made my own background paper here using the Stampin' Up! "Polka Dot" background stamp. I used the "Mother's Day" word image from the "All Holidays" stamp set.

Measurements for this card are as follows (working from the bottom layer to the top):
Black card stock = 8 1/2" x 5-1/2" folded in half to measure 5-1/2" x 4-1/4"
Barely Banana = 5-3/8" x 4-1/8"
Black = 4-1/8" x 3-1/8"
White = 4" x 3" (this piece has the Polka Dots stamped on it)
Black Strip = 1-5/8" x 5-1/2"
White Strip = 1-1/2" x 5-1/2"

The center of the silk flowers is a flower from the Boho Blossoms punch
And a crystal rhinestone brad was used in the center of the flower. The flower was attached with a Dimensional.

I added two black brads to the strip and assembled the piece. This is a very simple card layout to work with. It's a quick card to put together too!!

This card was made entirely of Stampin' Up! products. To view more cards/items made entirely of Stampin' Up! products click here.

That is just the prettiest card. I never would have thought to put black in the center of the flower...but it really works. Great job!

This is a beautiful card, I broke into my pretties kit this week also. I find it hard to use them, looks great on your card.

gorgeous! Love the subtle look of this card. The soft coloring on the flowers brings it all together to make for one fantastic card! TFS

This is a gorgeous card.

I can not wait until this week is over and I can devote some time to creating cards. I have to get through Final Exams first... *SIGH*

Darn you - now I need that All Holidays stamp set. I was going to wait to get it but I LOVE your card. I will have to go through my stamps to see if I have something to replace it so I can try this.
