Good Morning Magnolia, Magnolia Memories, Magnolia Lane, Thinking of You Card

The last two card I had made were found here, as well as this one. They were part of a single photo on that web site.  I wasn't able to get any measurements so I had to guess. I think I got it pretty close.  Here's how I made this card.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Petal Pink card stock.  This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left. 

I cut a 3-1/2" x 5" piece of Whisper White card stock.  

Then I cut a 3" x 3" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Magnolia Lane" 12" x 12" paper pack.  I taped the DSP to the piece of Whisper White card stock. 

I set the Whisper White piece in my Stamparatus and I set the words from the "Good Morning Magnolia" stamp set.  I thought I had gotten it straight. I usually use a piece of scrap copier paper and stamp on it so I can see if it's straight.  But this time I didn't because I thought it looked straight.  I guess I was wrong.  Anyway, I stamped the words using black Memento ink.  

I die cut the flower petals using the "Magnolia Memories" dies.  I die cut two small ones and one large one.  I actually cut two large ones because I thought the flower looked lopsided.  The two together didn't work so I ended up just using one.  I glued the three pieces together.  

I die cut the Daffodil Delight flower center and I glued that to the center of the white petals.

I added one of the fuzzy centers from the "Perennial Essence Floral Centers" accessories.   

I die cut three leaves, two of the large ones and one small.  They were cut from a scrap piece of Mossy Meadow card stock.  I hovered the flower over the area where the flower was to be set in place and I glued the leaves in place.

I added a Dimensional to the back of the flower and I set it in place on the card.

That was it.  This was a very quick and easy card to make.  This layout kind of reminds me of the "Polaroid" technique.  It has something at the top and a wide space for words at the bottom.  Both are great ways to use the DSP in larger pieces.  

This was a fun card to make and I can see myself using this layout again on other cards.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,
