Mother's Day Card

I can't believe it's almost the end of April which means it can't be long till Mother's Day.  For this card I used Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3439- Flirty Fleurs PreCut Set and HCD 717 Layered Scalloped Posy Topper.  I became acquainted with Heartfelt Creations last year and was immediately drawn to their flower stamps with matching dies which makes everything quick and easy.  For this card, I stamped the image on acetate and colored with the shimmery paints from Creative Inspirations Paint.

Here is a more detailed description of how I made this card:
Cut CS 6 3/8 x 8 3/4", score at 4 3/8", fold and crease.  Cut DP 4 1/8 x 6 1/8".  Die cut Romantic Rectangle.  Stamp Flirty Fleurs image on acetate and paint with shimmer paint.  Die cut with Lacy Oval.  With DP, cut 2 Lacy Ovals, cut out the center of one.  Die cut the Posy Topper as a doily, trim to fit center of Lacy Oval and adhere.  Adhere image over Posy Topper with Glossy Accents and then add the Lacy Oval with center cut out.  Adhere panel to card with pop dots.  Make 3 small flowers by stamping with VersaMark and using gold EP.  Die cut tag, print sentiment from computer on DP and add to tag.  Add tag to card base with pop dots.  Add seam binding bow and 3 small pearls.

Thank you so much for visiting and have a blessed day!
