Use the Stamparatus to stamp the image (Just Because) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a piece of Whisper White card stock. Watch my 4 Best Tips Cling Stamp video here for tips on using the new and improved stickers.

Crop using a die-cutting machine, platform, and Rectangle Stitched die. Wrap with Linen Thread, securing with a bow over the right side of the flower pot.

Color with Light Poppy Parade and Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  1. Beautiful simplicity. That background die is everything.

  2. Mary, this card is sooooo you! Beautifully simplistic with lots of eye appeal! I love the idea of a focal panel that would be perfect for a smaller notecard and then mounted against lovely texture. Just had to let you know how much I like this card!!!

  3. I love this simplistic, but pretty Mother’s Day card. Loving the background die. Have a great day!
