Birthday Card, April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card

Today's card was fun to make.  I found a card on the internet that used the "Healing Hugs" set.  I couldn't find the actual card.  The link provided only brought me to the site. I did spend a little time searching for the card but I gave up. Here's the link to the site.  The card looks similar.  You might be able to view the original card here

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Soft Sea Foam card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Soft Sea Foam that was textured using the "Tufted" embossing folder.  

Next I took a piece of Whisper White card stock and stamped the leaves from the April 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit. I used Versa Mark to stamp them and then I embossed them with white embossing powder.  I sponged in Fresh Fig and Mossy Meadow ink.  I wiped off the surface, ink does not dry on top of embossing.  That piece measured 5-1/4" x 2-1/8".  I taped that piece to the textured Soft Sea Foam piece.  

I taped a strip of the "Polka Dot" Tulle ribbon over the seam.  Then I took another piece of the ribbon and tied a bow right to the strip I taped down.  I like to do my bows that way because I can slide it and position it much easier.

I stamped the flower using Fresh Fig ink and I stamped three leaves using Mossy Meadow ink. I fussy cut them all.  I also colored both of them with Wink of Stella.  The Wink of Stella picks up the color of the ink and spreads it around as you color over the surface.  I like that effect.  The flower and leaves needed something more than just the ink outlines.  

I stamped the words using Mossy Meadow ink. I die cut them with an oval die and I also die cut a Mossy Meadow scalloped oval.  I taped those two pieces together.  

I set the flower in place using Dimensionals.  I set the leaves in place using Dimensionals.  And the words were also set in place using Dimensionals.  And then I set the whole panel in place using Dimensionals.  Lots of Dimensionals here!!!

I really like how this card turned out and I will be giving it to my mom on her birthday.
