Flowering Zinnias, Softly Sophisticated, Friendship Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a card to share with you that I found on Pinterest. I had saved them to my zinnia board and lo and behold I realized it was made by Terri! You can see the original card here. Please read on to see how I made my version of the card. 

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. It opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top.

I cut a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock. On this piece of card stock I cut the large layer using the second largest die from the "Nested Essentials" set. Then I taped the layer down on the card base.

A piece of Lemon Lolly was cut for the next layer and it measured 4" x 5-1/4". Then I taped it on top of the Pumpkin Pie piece.

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Flowering Zinnias" 12" x 12" package. I cut my piece 3-7/8" x 5-1/8". It was supposed to be cut in half but I measured wrong. It doesn't really matter, it will be pretty no matter how you cut it. My piece was cut at 2-3/4" I turned the right side over and taped the two in place on top of the Lemon Lolly layer.

The words are from the retired "Softly Sophisticated" Sale-a-Bration set and were stamped using black Memento ink on a piece of Basic White card stock. I die cut it using the next smaller die in the same "Nested Essentials" set. I taped the layers together and then taped them to the front of the card. I centered it as much as I could by eyeing it.

A flower was fussy cut from the same sheet of DSP and was set in place on front of the card using Dimensionals. And the card was done.

Isn't it pretty? Hop on over to Terri's blog, she's got LOTS of pretty samples using the zinnia bundle.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's friendship card.
