Here is an excellent video describing how to use the card feature on this cartridge (thank you My Pink Stamper!):

 

 

The Paper Sets The Tone

For starters, let’s talk about the paper used with both of these cards.

I love this pink flower paper and thought it was perfect for this card style.

I paired it with pink and green cardstock.

Pink Flower Card #1:  Mother’s Day

I put the light pink flower on the front of the card.  When I saw that the flowers on the printed paper have a dark pink center, I put one on my pink flower also.

Happy Mother’s Day was cut at 3 inches from the Wild Card cartridge.  I put it in a light pink box and centered it inside my card. I used a fine point black Sharpie marker to add some dots and dashes at 2 of the corners to add some dimension.

To finish off the card I added the final hot pink flower.

 

Pink Flower Card #2:  Oh Happy Day

Instead of a single light pink flower in the lower right corner, I used the ‘shadow’ feature to make a hot pink flower with light pink shadow.

The inside phrase is from the Wild Card cartridge, cut at 3 inches.  The feature also creates the background circle, which I cut from white cardstock.

I cut a flower with stem and leaves from the printed paper and added it to the circle.

 

The envelopes for both cards were made from cardstock paper the same color as the base, following this example.
