Good Morning Magnolia, Ornate Borders, Thinking of You Card, 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I found this pretty card on Pinterest. You can see the original card here.  I really liked that flower border on the diagonal.  I think that is what caught my eye.  I clicked on the link but it didn't take me anywhere, so here is how I made it.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock.  

On top of the card base is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White.

I took a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black card stock and I die cut the flower border from the "Ornate Borders" dies.  I just lined it up to what the original card looked like and I die cut it out on my Big Shot.

I set the die cut piece on top of the Whisper White piece so I could line up the wording.  The words I used are from the "Good Morning Magnolia" set. I stamped them using black Memento in.

I taped the die cut piece to the Whisper White piece. 

I did take a toothpick and a little bit of glue and ran it along the top edge of the die cut flowers to get them to lay flat.  

I taped the two layers to the card base. 

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock was added to the inside of the card and the card was done.

This was such a pretty and SUPER quick card to make.  I have a lot of retired card stock that I ran across the other day and this would be a perfect use for it. I can use black Memento ink for the words and the colored card stock for the die cut piece and it will still look great!!  I guess I need to set up my Stamparatus if I'm going to try using some of this card stock up!!!

This would make a great birthday, Mother's Day, thank you, and thinking of you card.. Maybe some white on white for a wedding card??? I'm going to have to try that. I had a wedding that was supposed to be in April but the date got moved to November.  I should at least have the card ready, right?   I think I would add some pearls to the center of the flowers for the wedding card.  It won't be mailed so I can add as much thickness as I want!

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