Mother's Day Filter Flower Card

Here's a Mother's Day card I did for my clubs in April.  I love this background stamp.  I stamped it three times to get all the layers.
Here's the cheat sheet on the flower.  It's 4 scallop circles with cuts to create petals.
Stamp Sets:
  • Amazing Family
  • Ex Libris
  • Bashful Blue
  • So Saffron
  • Not Quite Navy
  • Very Vanilla
Extras / Tools:
  • 1 3/4" Scallop Circle punch
  • 1 1/4" Scallop Circle punch
  • 7/8" Scallop Circle punch
  • Neutrals brad
  • Sponge Dauber
  • White Creped Filter Paper
  • Stampin' Sponge
  • Basic Jewels - Pearls
  • Dimensionals
Tips:  To punch the filter paper, stack a sheet of filter paper with a sheet of plain printer paper and punch them together.  It needs the extra stability to punch properly.  I used the sponge dauber to draw a border of So Saffron on the edges of the top layer and to give some color to the flower.  After you put the brad through the flower and the cut out label, scrunch it with your fingers to give it life. 

Happy Stampin'
