Celebrating You, Hand-Penned Petals, Mother's Day Card, Stampin' Up!

Now I know you are not going to believe me, but I had actually put the "Hand-Penned Petals" stamp set back on my shelf.  REALLY!!!  I had to go get it to make my version of this card I found on Pinterest. You can see the original card here.  I like this card because it's VERY versatile. You can use this card for a number of occasions and not just Mother's Day.

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

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Soft Succulent card stock and taped it to the front of the card base.

Then I cut a 2" x 3-3/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the in colors 6" x 6" stack. This is the Evening Evergreen color. I taped that in place, making it equal on the top, bottom and left side.

The scalloped rectangle was die cut using Basic White card stock and the largest "Stitched So Sweetly" die. 

The flower is from the "Hand-Penned Petals" set and were stamped on a piece of Basic White card stock using black Memento ink. And then it was die cut using the matching die. I stamped Daffodil Delight for the flowers and then I tapped my Crushed Curry ink cube on the edges and a little bit in the centers of each flower stamp and stamped it on top of the Daffodil Delight flowers. It does show up better in person.

The leaves were stamped using the leaf stamp image in the "Hand-Penned Petals" set and Soft Succulent ink.  I took my Blender pen and Soft Succulent ink to color in the stems.  

The words are from the "Celebrating You" set and were stamped using Evening Evergreen ink. Then the rectangle was taped in place on the front of the card.

The flower was set in place using Dimensionals. I added some "Genial Gems" to the front of the card and I did omit the bow. I didn't think it needed it.  Though the center of the flower does need something and I will probably color it in using the Soft Suede or Crumb Cake marker. I dropped everything and grabbed my markers. I used Soft Suede and it's too dark!!  Note to self, use Crumb Cake next time!  LOL  It still looks nice but it's very dark.

This was a very fun card to make and I do like how it turned out. I opted to use Basic White for the base of my card instead of Soft Succulent because the rectangle was Basic White and I thought that it needed to be tied into the card somehow. So making the base white then the rectangle didn't stand out so much. I like the look.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's Mother's Day card,
