Petal Palate, Mother's Day Card, Teeny Tiny Wishes, 2018 Occasions Catalog

Today's card was a very fun one to make.  I found it on Pinterest and I pretty much copied it as it was.  I'm not sure of the colors but it's close enough!

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Old Olive card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.  I cut a 2" x -4-3/4" piece of Basic Black.  On top of that is a 1-3/4" x 4-1/2" piece of crumb cake that I textured using an embossing folder.  

I die cut the branch using Old Olive.  I stamped the flowers using Calypso Coral ink. I die cut them out.  I stamped the bird using black Memento ink and die cut it out as well.  And I also die cut that lacy looking border strip at the bottom using Basic Black in,.  The branch and the lacy thing were die cut using a sticky sheet under them so they would become stickers and easy to place.

I stamped the words from the soon to retire "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set. I was kind of sad to see this set go, but I saw on the internet somewhere what is replacing it and I was pleased!!!  Though I may hang onto this set for a while longer.  I do like how it covers every occasion.  

I had also die cut a stitched circle using Whisper White card stock.

To assemble this card, I taped the Whisper White layer in place.  Then I taped the black and Crumb Cake layers together.  I taped them in place on the left side of the card.  Then I stuck the lacy looking piece in place.  I taped the circle in place and then the branch piece on top of that.  I added the flowers using Dimensionals and a tiny pearl to the center of each one.

I colored the bird with a blender pen and Calypso Coral ink. I set the bird in place using Dimensionals.  

I punched the words and set them in place with Dimensionals.  I added three larger pearls to the background and the card was done.

I thought it was such a pretty card!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
