Pretty Thank You with Good Morning Magnolia

I CASED this pretty card from Mary Fish at Stampin' Pretty.  Isn't it beautiful?  I first stamped the Magnolia image and colored it with my Stampin' Blend markers, then touched up the center with a bit of Wink of Stella.  Die cut it with Magnolia Memory Dies. That is adhered to Whisper White card stock with dimensionals and then layered on some Magnolia Lane DSP and Whisper White card stock base.  Add a bow and you have a sweet, yummy card!

STAMPS and DIES: Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and Magnolia Memory Dies

Stitched Rectangle Dies

INK: Memento Black Ink, Stampin' Blends (Mossy Meadow light and dark, Petal Pink, light and Dark, Daffodil Delight, light), and Wink of Stella

EMBELLISHMENTS: Frosted and Clear Epoxy Droplets, Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon


Stamp large magnolia flower and color with Stampin' Blends.  Add touch of Wink of Stella to center.

Die cut end of 4 x 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock using the scroll-like die. Adhere the piece of DSP under end of this so the whole piece including the DSP is approx. 5 1/4" long.  Adhere to card stock  base.  Adhere magnolia flower to top of this with dimensionals.

Bridal Shower Card

Country Floral Embossing Folder is super pretty for a bridal shower card.  I've done this card in Petal Pink with touches of gold.  The sentiment is embossed with gold embossing powder, and the center of the daisy is punched out of gold glimmer paper.  The touches of pink on the embossed images were added with a sponge dauber.  Easy, yet looks elegant!
