Southern Serenade, Itty Bitty Greetings, Mother's Day Card

Today I thought I would make another Mother's Day card.  I really like the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Share What You Love" 12" x 12" package.  There's SO many pretty images in that pack.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Mossy Meadow card stock.  This card opens on the right side.  On top of that is the DSP that was cut 4" x 5-1/4".

I took a piece from the corrugated piece of card stock that was in the April 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit.  You could use a piece of embossed card stock here if you want something with texture.  My piece was cut 4" x 1-5/8".  I taped that strip on top of the DSP.

I stamped the flower from the "Southern Serenade" set using black Memento ink.  I colored it in using the Calypso Coral and Old Olive, light and dark Blends.  And the centers of the flowers were colored in using the dark Daffodil Delight Blends.  After coloring I die cut the image using an oval die. I also die cut a scalloped oval using Mossy Meadow card stock. I taped the two ovals together and set them in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals. 

The words are from the "Itty Bitty Greetings" set.  I stamped them using black Memento ink.  I punched them out using the "Classic Label" punch.  I set the words in place using Dimensionals.  And that was it.  This was a quick and easy card to make.  Coloring with Blends is a whole lot easier than using markers or a blender pen.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
