Flowering Zinnias, Mother's Day Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. I think you for the well wishes. I'm sorry to say that I'm not feeling better but I'm not worse, so that's good thing, right?  I think tomorrow will be a better day! I have gotten plenty of rest and am hoping that is going to make a difference. I also hope none of you catch this horrible bug. I had to go in my workroom today to fold some clothes I was in need of some undergarments! Of all the times to run out. UGH! But I figured while I was downstairs I might as well make a card while I wait for the dryer. Please read on to see how I mad today's card.

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

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black card stock. The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Flowering Zinnias" 12" x 12" package. I cut three strips at 1-1/2" x 3-3/4". I am never good at getting these strips cut right. Does anyone know of a chart out there with measurements on cutting strips for cards? I like the looks of the strips but I just can't get them spaced nicely. Just like today's card. I was making this card for my mom, I don't think her eyesight is that great so she might not notice how off it is. LOL  And if she does she probably wouldn't say anything anyway.

Anyway, I took those strips of DSP and taped them to the Basic Black piece. I thought I had centered the middle piece and tried to space the other two out from there but it didn't work. UGH. I tried several times to get it right but just had no luck. And you know me, I post the good, the bad and the ugly here!

I taped the piece to the Old Olive card base. I also taped a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock to the inside.

The words were done on my computer. I was looking for something that would fit in that die and couldn't find anything so I just typed up something and printed it out on card stock. The die is from the "Everyday Details" die set.  I set them in place using Dimensionals.

I think this would be a great thinking of you, get well, birthday, or friendship card too.

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

That paper certainly makes a bright and cheery card. (Maybe you should change the sentiment and send it to yourself as a Get Well. ) My mother loved Zinnias. She always had them in a little flower bed behind the house. They were easy to grow too.
