Good Morning Magnolia, Thank You Card, 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I found this pretty card on Pinterest. I still had my "Magnolia Lane" Designer Series Paper (DSP) sitting out and I saw this card and had to give it a try.  There were no measurements so here is how I made it.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock.  This card opens at the bottom and the fold is at the top.

The Whisper White panel was cut at 4" x 3-1/2".  I taped that on top of the card base about 1/2"  in on the left side.  

I cut a piece of the striped DSP 2" x 4-7/8". I punched the ends using the "Triple Banner" punch.  If you are cutting this by hand, your DSP will need to be 2" x 4-3/8".  Both ends were punched (cut).   I taped that piece on top of the Whisper White piece.  The tip on the right side is about 1/4" from the side edge of the card base.

I took a piece of Petal Pink card stock and cut it at 3/4" x 4".  I punched the end of that one too.  It was more difficult to line up because the punch has slots for 2", 1-1/2" x 1".  I just slipped the strip in the punch and eyed it to try to get it as centered as possible.  

I stamped the words from the "Good Morning Magnolia" set using black Memento ink.  I set it up in my Stamparatus so I could get it straight and stamped dark enough.

Next I took some Mossy Meadow Baker's twine from a previous Paper Pumpkin kit and I made some loops on the front of the card and I attached them to the end of the Petal Pink strip using some snail tape.  

I fussy cut the flowers from the DSP. I could have used the matching die cut but I forgot I had it!  But they didn't take long to cut out anyway.  I set them in place using Dimensionals.  This also helps to keep the twine in place.

The leaves were die cut using Mossy Meadow card stock and are from the same die cut as the flower. They were in a bundle with the "Good Morning Magnolia" stamp set.  I die cut all four of the leaves in the set. I used a little bit of glue and set them in place.

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

I think this is such a pretty looking card. It would be great for a birthday, thinking of you, Mother's Day, and a get well card.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to visit today,
