Beautiful Promenade, Mother's Day Card, 2019 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog

At first I was wondering why I bought this set but now that I've played with it a bit more I am liking it. Especially because it has matching die cuts!  You know me and fussy cutting!

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that is a 5" x 3-3/4" piece of Highland Heather card stock.  And on top of that is a 4-7/8" x 3-3/8" piece of Whisper White that I textured using the "Tufted" embossing folder.  I taped the embossed layer to the Highland Heather layer.

I stamped the flower on a piece of scrap Whisper White card stock using Gorgeous Grape ink.  This stamp is a two step one, so I had stamped the outer part first and then I stamped the inside lines. I think they are a bit too dark and maybe stamping off once might have done the trick, but it is what it is for this card!

I almost fussy cut the flower and then I remembered that I had bought the bundle, so I had the stamps and the matching dies.  Yay!!!  So when I die cut the flower I also die cut some leaves using a scrap piece of Granny Apple Green card stock.  

I took a strip I had cut off when cutting the Highland Heather piece and I cut it to 3-3/8" long and I left the width as it was.  I taped that strip about 1-1/8" up from the bottom of the embossed piece.  Then I added the flower using Dimensionals.  I glued the leaves in place.  

The words were from my computer.  I ran across a stash of stuff and those were in it so I thought I would us them.  No more hoarding! (ya, right!  LOL).  I had punched the out using the "Classic Label" punch but I ended up cutting the ends off to make it fit.  I don't like that part of the Highland Heather strip showing so I think I may add another leaf there to cover it some.

I set the Highland Heather and Whisper White layers on top of the card front using Dimensionals. 

And to complete the card I added some purple sequins that I had.  They are not from Stampin' Up! but they matched and made the card prettier.

This was a fun card to make and I look forward to playing with this set again.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
