Darling Details, Friendship or Note Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello!  I'm not that thrilled about sharing this card with you.  This is not what was in my head when I started making the card.  And when I finished making it, I actually laughed out loud and said, "What a goofy looking card!" And it is.  But as always, I share the good, the bad, and the ugly with you!  I guess I can add "goofy" to that list! LOL

So I'm going to share with you how I made this card so you can improve on it!

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock I cut a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Basic White card stock for the top layer.

I cut a 2-1/4" x 3-1/2" piece of scrap card stock for a template to draw the lines. I centered this piece on the top layer and drew the lines on the top and right side.

Next I stamped the flower from the "Darling Details" set using Berry Burst ink for the outline and Bubble Bath ink for the solid part. I die cut it with the matching dies. I also stamped the leaves using Granny Apple Green ink for the outline and Granny Apple Green stamped off once for the solid part.

I did set the flower on the top layer to see where the stem should be stamped. Then I stamped the stem using Granny Apple Green ink. 

The words are from the same "Darling Details" set and were stamped using black Memento ink.  

I set the flower and leaves in place using Dimensionals.  Then I laughed. I probably should have moved the flower down more and it may not have looked so goofy!  But it is what it is and I promise I will have a better card tomorrow!

Thank you SO much for bearing with me on this one,

I think it's cute. :-) I like that you share all of your cards. I do, too. Even the ones I'm not that thrilled about. Sorry I haven't been here for awhile. Life gets in the way sometimes. Great cards you've been sharing
