A Secret Garden Mother's Day Card Stampin' Up!

I saw a card on Pinterest that used a black and white theme.  The black square in the bottom middle of the card was a frame.  Well, I didn't have the time or the effort to make a nice frame with punches or even cut out by hand using a ruler and a craft knife.  So I cheated and used a piece of card stock on top of the black polka dot paper.  It kind of seems like a waste of that paper only because I don't have much of that design left.  

On my cheating white square I stamped some leaves in Wild Wasabi.  I first stamped off and then stamped on the card stock.  Then I stamped 3 flowers from the "Secret Garden" set using Daffodil Delight.  I also used the "Secret Garden Framelets" to cut out the flower.  And for the center of the flowers I was just going to use a small circle punch but I ended up using the small flower from the "Itty Bitty Shapes" punch pack.  I set them in place on the flower with tape.  The flowers were set in place using Dimensionals and the background was set in place on the folded card base using Dimensionals.  

The words came from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set and were set on top of a Modern Label punched piece which was set in place with Dimensionals.  

The background was done using my scoring board.  I scored two spaces and then skipped 2 spaces and did that across my piece of card stock.  After I finished I then cut that piece to fit the front of my card (cut 3-1/2" x 4-1/2").

And that was it.  It's a very simple card to make and quick too!  I can see myself making more of these.  Personally I think they would be fun in a pack of cards with other occasions (to be given as a gift for a very special person!).

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
