Healing Hugs, April 2019 Paper Pumpkin, Mother's Day Card

I was looking for a fun card to make and I found this one on Pinterest.  You can see the original card here, I did change it a little.  

I loved the flowers and I thought it was something from the new catalog that will be released in about a month.  I have mixed feelings with teasers.  LOL  But this wasn't a teaser.  This flower was from the April 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit.  If you didn't purchase the Paper Pumpkin kit, the "Healing Hugs" set will work.  The flower will be a bit more solid, which will still be pretty.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that is a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8 piece of Mossy Meadow card stock.  And on top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White.

I stamped the middle flower first using Merry Merlot ink.  Then I stamped the bottom flower using Blushing Bride ink.  And then I stamped the top flower using Flirty Flamingo. I did mask the middle flower before stamping the top flower. 

I continued to use the mask to stamp the leaves.  I used Mossy Meadow for the leaves.  

The words are from the same Paper Pumpkin kit and I stamped them using Mossy Meadow ink.  I die cut them using an oval die.  I die cut the Mossy Meadow oval from the 4-1/8" x 5-3/8 piece of Mossy Meadow card stock.  This time I remembered to die cut from the center of the piece before I taped them together!  Sometimes the mind does remember things!  Now where was I?  LOL

I taped the layers together and then I taped the ovals together.  I set the ovals in place using Dimensionals.  And that was it.  Now I have my mom's Mother's Day card done!  The original card using some (what looks like) Daffodil Delight in the center of the flowers.  I may color some in, the centers do look like they need something.

This was a fun and quick card to make.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
