Petal Palette, You're Inspiring, 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog, Mother's Day Card

WOW, here's another simple and quick card.  I wished I would have either chosen words with a thicker font or made the oval smaller.  But I was working on making a quick card and didn't know how the words would look until after it was assembled. It's okay in the word area but I really like the rest of the card a lot.

So are you ready to hear how to make this simple card?  The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White.  The Basic Black piece was cut 3-3/4" x 5".  It was textured using the new "Garden Trellis" embossing folder.

The words are from the "You're Inspiring" set. I thought I would make it into a Mother's Day card since I have a large supply of Birthday cards. 

The flowers are from the "Petal Palette" set and I die cut them with the matching dies.  Ya gotta love it when you can do that. Imagine how much time you save!  Plus your hands don't get tired either!!! LOL

I colored the flowers using Blends markers, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry.  I was going to go with Real Red, but it's so traditional!

I centered the oval and set it in place using Dimensionals.  I used Dimensionals on the outer part of the flower and the part that sits on the oval has snail tape under it.  And that was it!!

I thought it was fun and I plan to make another one but I'm going to use maybe just a "Happy Birthday" even though I don't need one because I have some that have a thicker and larger font that would look better in that oval. 

But all in all I do like this card.  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
