A Bloom with Hope Mother's Day Card

How about a bright and cheery Mother's Day card?  I love red on white!  

I used the "Bloom with Hope" set for the flower.  I masked off the medium size flower and then stamped my image.  I wanted the flower in the circle but not much of it showed and it looked like I had made a mistake and I didn't want that.  I make enough on my own without having the stamps make it look like I made another one!!!  Anyway, I stamped the image and colored it in using a blender pen and Real Red, Daffodil Delight, and Wild Wasabi markers.

I punched it out with the 1-3/4" circle punch.  The scallop came from the "Circle Card" Thinlits die.  I need to play with that die again, it's been a long time.  See, one thing leads to another!!!  I taped the flower on top of the scalloped piece and I set that in place using Dimensionals.

The words are from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set.  Those were taped onto a piece of Real Red card stock that was punched out using the Modern Label punch.  I set that in place with Dimensionals as well.

I used an embossing folder on the background piece and I taped that in place on a folded half sheet of Whisper White card stock.

This is a super simple, easy and elegant looking card!!!  As I look at it, I wished I would have cut the embossed piece another 1/4" on two sides and then cut a piece of Real Red card stock 4" x 5-1/4" and then taped that to the folded half sheet.  I think it would have framed the card in a lot nicer.  But this is what I did and this is what you get to see!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
