Good Morning Magnolia, Varied Vases, Birthday Card, 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Catalog

When I made my card on Thursday, I had actually stamped two flowers, die cut them both and colored them both.  I also stamped, cut and colored the smaller flower that you can see tucked into the large flower around the 1-o'clock position.  I had it sitting on my worktable.  I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it.  Sometimes I will make two and practice different ways to color and one will turn out and the other won't.  Here both turned out and I had this just waiting for me to make a card.  And today was that day!  You can see my other card by clicking here.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock.  On top of that I taped a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  Then I took a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Whisper White and I textured it using the "Pinewood Planks" embossing folder.  I taped that piece on top of the Crumb Cake piece.

Then I added Dimensionals to the flowers. I tucked the smaller flower into the larger flower with part of the petals showing. I did use some snail to hold the two pieces together where I thought they looked best.  I didn't want them to move after finding the perfect spot.  I removed the backing on the Dimensionals and set the flower in place on the front of the card.

The words are from the "Varied Vases" set. I used black Memento ink to stamp them. I punched them out using the "Classic Label" punch.  I set them in place using Dimensionals.

I added three green sequins to the front and a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside and the card was done. 

This was a very simple and quick card to make.  Quicker when the flowers were already stamped, cut and colored!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
