Mother's Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the Team Stamp It Group's Mother's Day Theme Blog Hop.  
Whether you started the blog hop with my blog or "hopped" over to my blog from one of my teammates blog, I am happy you stopped by.   
I love the Oh So Succulent stamp set and matching framelits dies. The Oh So Succulent stamp set is available as a bundle, which includes 30 photopolymer stamps and 17 framelits dies, or the set can be purchased individually.  The sentiment on the inside of the card was stamped using the First Sight stamp set with Always Artichoke ink onto Whisper White cardstock and then cut out with the oval Stitched Shapes Framelits dies.
The card base is made using Whisper White cardstock with Sweet Sugarplum, Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Mint Macaron cardstock and Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper for the panels.  The Sweet Sugarplum accents on the sides of the center panels are made using the border die from the Flourish Thinlits dies. The basket on the front panel is made with Crumb Cake and Early Espresso cardstock and is cut out using the Basket Builder Framelits Dies. The succulents in the basket were stamped on to Mint Macaron cardstock using Always Artichoke ink and cut out using the Succulent Framelits dies. The tips of the succulents were colored with Sweet Sugarplum Stampin' Write Marker.  The flowers were stamped on to Whisper White cardstock using Sweet Sugarplum ink and cut out using the Succulent Framelits dies. The Lace Doilies underneath the basket is from the Falling in Love Suite that is featured in the 2017 Occasions Catalog. 
This trifold card is really easy and fun to make.  Using a 12" x  5 1/2" sheet of cardstock, score at 2", 4", 8" and 10".  Measure up 1 1/2" from the bottom edge and using your paper trimmer cut from the 2" score line to the 10" score line.  Repeat this same cut 1 1/2" from the top edge of the card.

The lighted window box was made using Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and the Window Box Thinlits dies.  The flower was made using the Succulent Framelits dies and Old Olive and Sweet Sugarplum cardstock with a Rhinestone jewel in the center of the flower.  The box is wrapped with the Whisper White Succulent Garden 3/8" ribbon that comes in a combo pack with 3/8" Sweet Sugarplum ribbon.
Most of the items I used on this blog hop are on the retiring list.  If you are interested in any of the products I used to make the card or lighted window box, I would recommend placing your order sooner rather than later.  Many of the items are only available while supplies last and are selling out quickly.
