Stitched Flowers for Mom

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog. Before I start with today's card, I wanted to give you a heads up on a flash sale going on over in the online store. You can save up to 50% on selected dies. Hurry though the sale ends Sunday, April 1 at 9:00 pm.

Today, I am showing a card that is featuring dies from the Stitched collection and the good news is they are on sale for 25% off until tomorrow night. I used the Stitched Flowers and Stitched Alphabet dies to create a card for Mom. Mother's Day is coming soon. So lets get started with the details on how I created this project.

Step 1: Since this is a floral card for Mom, I wanted the flowers to be in bright Spring colors. So I used yellow, pink and purple for my flowers and a wasabi green for my stems.
Once the stitched flowers and leaves were cut, I arranged them on my patterned paper. The paper is from a collection that matches the wasabi green cardstock.  I wanted the flowers curved a bit for depth so I used a bone folder to curl up the edges. I attached flowers with dimensional adhesive.
Patterned Paper Panel: 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
Step 2: Cut my Mom Phrase from the Stitched Alphabet die with purple cardstock.

I tried placing the letters across the bouquet but the colors just blended in too much with the flowers. And, because I curled the flowers I could see I was going to have difficulty attaching it here. The next option was to place it at the bottom of the patterned paper. I like the look of it placed there.
Step 3: To complete my card I attached the image panel to a wasabi cardstock base. It is a match for the patterned paper and I thought it looked better than using vanilla.
Wasabi Card Base: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
Well, that's it for me for this week. I hope you have a blessed Easter celebration. I am having my family for dinner. See you next Saturday!
