All Things Fabulous, Birthday Card, Friendship Card, Thinking of You Card

I'm not sure what genre this card falls into.  Is it a birthday card? A friendship card? A thinking of you card?  I guess it could be any or all of them.  I found this card on Pinterest and it was made using Misty Moonlight (I'm assuming there). I did try it in Misty Moonlight but all I had was the cube from a Paper Pumpkin kit and it didn't cover the flower very well. It left marks, so I switched colors and here's what I came up with.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. This card opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top. When the card stock was cut in half, it was cut on the shorter 8-1/2" side and then it was scored at 5-1/2" and folded.

So the first thing I did was I needed to stamp the flower on the left. I inked up the stamp and I stamped off onto a piece of copier paper because I needed to make a mask. Then I stamped on the front of my card. There is a center image for the flower and I stamped it using full ink. Oh, the color ink I used was Melon Mango.  

Next I set the mask flower over the original flower. When I cut my masks I usually cut them 1/8"-1/16" smaller than the original flower. It seems to stamp closer to the image without leaving a gap.  

Then I stamped the second flower the same way I did the first one, by stamping off for the larger part and full ink for the center image. I used the matching die and cut it out.

The words are from the same "All Things Fabulous" set and they were stamped using black Memento ink. And the card was done.

This is a very quick and easy card to make. And versatile too!!!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see this quick and easy card,
