Thinking of Magnolia’s …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

The magnolia family is one of the oldest trees in existence. Because magnolias are so old, their flowers do not have true petals and sepals; instead, they have petal-like tepals… all I know is they are beautiful and the Magnolia Lane is one of my favorite suites in the new catalog. How about you?

Today I’m sharing a sweet magnolia card with you that’s simplicity and beauty will surely warm your heart. Your friends are going to love receiving this card … letting them know you are thinking of them ….

The base of the card is Basic Black … Just like a little black dress, it goes good with the magnolia flower. The flower was stamped with Momento ink and then I sponged a hint of Flirty Flamingo in the center of the flower and then added a touch of Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. The soft color adds a beautiful contrast to the stark white and black.  The leaves are colored with the Old Olive Duo Stampin’ Blends …

The greeting also comes from the stamp set, the soft flowing script coordinates perfectly with the delicate flower.  I punched out the greeting with the Pretty Label punch … several punches of the Basic Black for a mat behind the greeting and really makes it pop and finishes the card off beautifully.

I hope you enjoyed a sneak peek into my Magnolia class … this is not one of the cards we’re making but it’s sure a good start!
