Mom’s Spring Flower Card

My parents came for a visit a couple of weeks ago.  After sewing for 5 days, my Mom and I made cards together.  Here is one she made using the Butterfly Basics stamp set.

Butterfly Basics Easter Card

We made this pretty Easter card at my last Stamp Class.  It has basic coloring with Markers.  Some ladies used the back side of the patterned DSP for a more vibrantly colored card.

Fast Fuse OR SNAIL Adhesive

1.  Cut your Crisp Cantaloupe card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Choose the pattern of the Designer Series Paper you want and cut it at 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Attach to card base with Fast Fuse OR SNAIL Adhesive.
3.  Stamp your flower image on Whisper White card stock with black ink.  NOTE:  Use Memento Black ink with Photopolymer stamps.  StayzOn will permanently make them black.  Color the flowers with Markers.  Due to the shading in the stamps only simple coloring is needed to make the flower look great!
4.  Choose the desired Oval Framelit to cut out your flower.  Yes, I cut off part of the stem.  Choose the next larger Oval Framelit and use it to cut your Crisp Cantaloupe mat.  Put Dimensionals on the back of both Ovals and layer them together.
5.  Stamp Happy Easter in Black ink on Whisper White card stock.  Punch out with the Word Window Punch.  Punch the mat from Crisp Cantaloupe card stock using the Modern Label Punch.  Attach your sentiment with Fast Fuse or SNAIL Adhesive.  Put Dimensionals on the back.  I usually use three half Dimensionals on the back of the Modern Label piece.
6.  Lay out your Ovals and sentiment in the desired positions and then attach them.
7.  Happy Easter!

Happy Easter Card Making!
