MFT Stitched Blooms Card Kit Day 2

It's Day 2 of previews of MFT's Stitched Blooms Card Kit. This colorful kit will go
on sale tomorrow, April 24th at 9PM EST in the MFT Store.

Today I'm sharing a simple Mother's Day card and an idea on how to add a little
something to the envelopes. First, here's the card.

Zig markers were used to color a batch of flowers. The bloom was cut on the dotted
line and overlapped with the next petal to form a dimensional flower. The leaves were
cut from Limelight card stock and shading was added with a YG03 Copic marker.

Stitched lines were embossed on a top folding card base. The letters for "mom"
were cut from kraft card stock and adhered to the card. The bloom was substituted
for the "o" and adhered between the two m's. I didn't want to detract from the
main image so the sentiment was stamped in Grout Gray ink beneath it.

I wanted to add a little something to the envelopes and decided to dry emboss the
flaps with different word dies. Teammate Laurie Willison shares her technique here.
I went the lazy route and just embossed the flap using an embossing mat.
