Blooming with Kindness Mother's Day Card

Okay, I promised you a better card than yesterday! Well, I think it's better anyway, and I hope you do too!!!

As I was looking through the current stamp sets that I own I ran across the Bloom with Kindness one and I thought I would play with it today.  You can make a super simple card using this set to a more complex card (secret is out on tomorrow's card!!).  For the cards I'm going to be selling next month, I'm trying to stick with quick and simple.  I don't want to spend a lot of time on the cards, nor do I want to use a lot of product on them either.

This card was super simple to make. I started out with a half sheet of Whisper White card stock.  I stamped the flower using Pink Pirouette ink and then rolled on Rose Red ink on the edges and tapped the corner of the pad in the center area a few times.  I did use a small post it note to cover the flower stem.  I removed the post it and colored in the stem with the Wild Wasabi marker.  The words are from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set and I stamped them using the Rose Red ink. 

The layer behind the focal piece is Rose Red.  I cut it 5" x 3-3/4".  The focal piece is cut at 4-3/4" x 3-1/2". Cutting the card stock that way leaves a very wide white border on the base part of the card stock.  It also helps to make an elegant looking card.   I think this card would also be great as a Thinking of you card, a Birthday Card, a Get Well card, a Sympathy Card, and even a Thank You card.  And of course a Mother's Day card!!!

Tune in tomorrow for a more complex card!!!  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
