Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia Thinking of You Card for Happy Inkin'

Today I am using the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp set and matching Magnolia Memory Dies to create my card for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop. I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you will continue on the hop after you view my card. It's a color challenge for us this week and I couldn't be happier with the colors.

Karen Finkle - you are here!

Update: July 13, 2019 per request of several readers, I am adding the measurements/assembly.

Basic Black Card Base – 4.25” x 11”, scored and folded at 5.5”
Choose the dies you want for your frame and sentiment mat. For my frame I used the one that measures approximately 3 3/8” x 4 3/4” and for the mat the one that is approximately 1 3/4" x 3 1/4"
Cut 2 buds out of corresponding  DSP with bud die from Magnolia Memory Dies or if you are ambitious or don’t have the DSP, you can stamp the bud, color it and then cut it out with the die. If you don’t have the die set, you can fussy cut everything!
Stamp big magnolia in Memento Tuxedo Black and color with Blends of your choice. I used Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow because of the challenge – cut out with big die from Magnolia Memory Dies
Adhere the outer frame.
Stamp the Hello on the DSP mat, center in the frame and adhere.
Put dimensionals on the large magnolia and place it where you want making sure you can tuck the buds underneath and adhere those with liquid glue or glue dots
