Mother's Day Card

I made these Mother's Day cards for the residents of the Long Term Care Unit of the hospital that I work at.  They are Z fold cards and were super easy and quick to make.  The inspiration for the cards came from a card made by Shannean Moncrieff

Measurements and supplies used to make this card:
11" x 4 1/4" cardstock, scored at 5 1/2" and 2 3/4"
5 3/8" x 4 1/8" Designer Series Paper
2 5/8" x 4 1/8" Designer Series Paper, you will need 2 this size
7 1/2" x 3 3/4" cardstock, scored at 3 3/4", this will make a 3 3/4" square card.

Fold the 11" x 4 1/4" cardstock in half at the 5 1/2" score line. Fold the card back onto itself at the 2 3/4" score line.  This will make the "Z".  Adhere the 3 pieces of Designer Series Paper to the card base.  Adhere the 3 3/4" square card to the center of the card back panel, making sure the 3 3/4" square card opens on the left hand side, with the fold on the right hand side. Adhere a doily to the center of the 3 3/4" square card front.  Adhere the oval that is from the Stitched Shapes framelits dies and is stamped Tuxedo Black Memento ink and the Suite Sentiments stamp set onto the center of the doily.  The inside sentiment is stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and "Happy Mother's Day" from the Oh So Succulent stamp set. Adhere the vine that was cut using the Flourish thinlit dies. I cut out two vines, one for around the top and one for around the bottom of the oval. The flowers were cut from the Botanical Builder framelits dies. You will need two larger flowers and five smaller flowers.  Use a sponge dauber to add a bit of color to the center of the smaller flowers. Give the flowers dimension by using the rounded end (not the pointy end) of your paper piercer and the piercing pad to apply pressure to the center of each of the flowers. Add a small flower to the center of the larger flowers using a mini glue dot.  Adhere the flowers around the vine using mini glue dot.  Each of the flowers has a Rhinestone jewel in the center.  Some of the items I used will be retiring soon, so don't wait too long to order.
