Mother's Day Card using April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit

I thought I would play with the April 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit one last time before I pack it away and stack it in the ever growing piles of Paper Pumpkin boxes!  One of these days I will need to go through them and decide what to do with all the stuff inside.  I'm such a pack rat!  While looking through Pinterst I found a fun card to make.  I SO love the flower from this Paper Pumpkin kit.  You can see the original card here. I did change it a little because I didn't have all of the same materials.  

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Mint Macaron.  This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.  

I cut a 4-5/8" x 3-3/8" piece of Whisper White card stock.  I stamped the flower using Mint Macaron ink.  I had stamped the flower three times.  I added Mint Macaron leaves and I set the piece aside.  I cut a Basic Black piece for the layer measuring 4-3/4" x 3-1/2".  I taped the two layers together and I taped the layers to the card base.

Next I took one of the printed images from the kit and cut it 1-1/4" and I left the length (which was 5").  I used the "Triple Banner" punch to cut the end of the strip.  I took a piece of Whisper White organza ribbon and taped the ends to the back of the strip.  Then I taped that strip in place on top of the stamped flowers image.  

I stamped the words using black Memento ink. I die cut them using the stitched circle die. I also die cut a Mint Macaron scalloped circle. I taped those two layers together.  I set the word layers in place using Dimensionals.  I added some Mint Macaron enamel dots that came with the kit and the card was done.

This was a fun card to make and I'd like to make more but not any time soon, I need to put this set away and move onto something else that will be retiring soon.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
