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

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a card to share with you that I found on Pinterest. You can see the original card here. Please read on to see how it was made. 

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 Gorgeous Grape card stock. I taped that to the front of the card base.

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Flowering Zinnias" 12" x 12" package. I cut the bottom strip 1-3/4" x 2-2/4" and the two top pieces were cut at 1-3/4" x 3-1/4".  I taped these pieces to the Gorgeous Grape piece.

The words were printed on my computer. I used Lucinda font at 15pt. I bolded it too. I printed it out on a piece of Basic White card stock and trimmed it to 3-3/4" x 3/4".  I set it in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals.

The flower is from the "Simply Zinnia" bundle and was stamped using Gorgeous Grape ink. I set it up in my Stamperatus and stamped it a couple of times to make sure it was nice and dark. Then I took my light Highland Heather Blends pen and colored it in. After I colored it I used the matching die to cut it out.

The leaves were stamped using Granny Apple Green ink and they were stamped a couple of times so it was nice and dark and then it was colored in using the light Granny Apple Green Blends pen. The leaves were die cut too.

I set the flower on top of the Basic White strip using Dimensionals that only touched the strip. And for the leaves I doubled up on the Dimensionals so they were the same height as the flower.

I took some rhinestones I had and colored them using my dark Granny Apple Green Blends pen and then set them in place on the front of the card and the card was done.

This was a fun card to make and I got to use the stamps in the bundle, I'm usually using the dies and the DSP and not so much with the stamps. This layout could be used for many other occasions. 

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