Varied Vases, Mother's Day Cards

I really like the "Varied Vases" set and I have not used it as much as I would have hoped I would. I love it because it has a matching punch. I'm SO not into fussy cutting much anymore! I've gotten spoiled by all the punches and dies.

This was a quick and fun card to make and I especially like the layout.  I found the card here on Pinterest.  

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that is a stitched rectangle.  It's the third one in the wider rectangles in the package.  It measures 1-13/16" x 3-3/16".  Just in case you don't have the stitched rectangles and want to cut plain rectangles.

Next I stamped the images. The vase was stamped using black Memento ink.  I did not pay attention to where the vase image was from on the original card.  I just used what I had in the "Varied Vases" set.  I punched it out and set it aside.  

I stamped the flower three times using Real Red ink and punched them out. 

I set the vase on the rectangle for placement.  I took a pencil and drew a light line at the top of the vase so I knew where to set it again once I was done stamping the leaves.  I used Pear Pizzazz to stamp the leaves.  I used the Pear Pizzazz marker to draw the stems in.  After drawing the stems in, I erased the pencil line.

I set the rectangle on top of the card base for placement so I knew where to stamp the words.  The words are from the "Itty Bitty Greetings" set and were stamped using black Memento ink.

I used small Dimensionals to attach the vase and flowers to the rectangle.  I also added Dimensionals to the back of the rectangle and set it in place.  And that was it. It's a pretty quick and cute card.  I would like to try this layout with some other images (in the near future - I hope!).

Thank you for stopping by today,
