Hand-Penned Petals, Art Gallery, Thinking of You Card, Stampin' Up!

Well, if today's card wasn't super fun to make. I had a great time making it. I'm not sure if it was the colors of the layout. It started snowing yesterday and it's still snowing today. And it's supposed to snow tomorrow as well.  I think we got 8" today though I could be wrong, it could be more.  Schools were closed and they don't close unless it's real bad. So maybe it's the colors that are reminding me of what is about 4 months away!  I just like it and I had fun making it. I found this card on Pinterest. I made a few minor changes. You can see the original card here. There were no instructions on how to make it, so here's how I did it. 

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

I cut a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Fresh Freesia card stock and taped it to the front of the card.

Next I die cut the larger scalloped rectangle using the die from the "Colors & Contours" bundle and Basic White card stock.

I stamped two sets of the flowers from the "Hand-Penned Petals" set using black Memento ink on Basic White card stock. Then I die cut them out. I colored the flowers in using my Blends pens. I used Mango Melody, Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green. I didn't have a Fresh Freesia Blends pen so I used my Blender Pen and my Fresh Freesia ink pad. I added Dimensionals to the back and set them in place on the front of the card. I eyed where they lined up on the original card. Then I added large pearls to the larger flowers and small pearls to the smaller flowers.

The words are from the "Art Gallery" set and they were stamped on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock and die cut using the long thinner ribbon die from the "Stylish Shapes" die set. I set the words on top of the card to see where I would be able to place the Dimensionals. I didn't want them to be on a leaf, though I don't think it would really matter. I set the words in place and the card was done.

This was a very fun card to make. I like the colors and I really like the layout.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's thinking of you card,
