Mother's Day Card, April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative Card

I thought I would post one more Paper Pumpkin card before I moved on to other stamp sets.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that I had cut a printed piece from the Paper Pumpkin kit that measures 3-3/8" x 4-5/8".  I cut a piece of Crushed Curry at 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" for the layer behind the printed piece.  I centered and taped it to the card base.

Next I took the strip that was left from making yesterday's card and I cut it in half at 7/8" x 5".  I taped the strips to the top of the printed piece.

Then I stamped the flower the same way as I did yesterday, using the printed card stock from the kit and masking the flower so I could stamp the leaves.  The flower was stamped using Flirty Flamingo and the leaves were stamped using Mint Macaron.  This piece measures 3" x 2-5/8"  I cut a piece of Crushed Curry at 3-1/8" x 2-3/4" and taped it to the stamped flower piece.  I set that piece in place using Dimensionals.  

The words are from the set and I stamped them using Gray Granite ink.  It's the color that came in the Paper Pumpkin kit.  I punched them out using the 1-3/8" circle punch and the 1-3/4" circle punch was used to punch a Crushed Curry circle for the layer.  I taped those two layers together and set them on the card using a Dimensional at the bottom and snail tape at the top.  The kit comes with some fun colored enamel dots. I wanted to add one under the word "day" but I couldn't fine them in my mess. I will be adding that when they are found. I planned on using the Flirty Flamingo colored dot, the largest one.  Let's home I find them!!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
