Blooming with Kindness

This birthday card was done with the Blooming With Kindness set and the Triple Tap technique.  I only used two layers and did the card in Melon Mambo and Whisper White.  This technique has been and is all over the Stampin' UP! blogs.  I wanted to use it to make a Birthday Card for my Sister but you could change the sentiment, to make a great Anniversary or Thinking of You card.

The measurements for this card are Base (Melon Mambo 5.5 x 8.5 folded to 5.5 x 4.25), the mat is Whisper White 5.25 x 4.  Layer 2/3 are 4.25 x 3 in Melon Mambo and 4 x 2.75 Whisper white.
1.  First cut you pieces and lay the Melon ones aside.
2.  Center the smaller white piece on the larger white mat (secure in place with removable adhesive so it can
      be removed) I think you will want 5/8" on each side of smaller piece.
3.  Stamp the sentiment on the top piece (I stamped it on the bottom but you can do it where you want)
4.  Randomly stamp your image on both pieces being careful to keep the top one from moving  Pull apart
5.   Mount smaller White to the Melon piece and the larger mat to the base of card.  Using Mono adhesive
     or your glue of choice.   
6.  Make a bow with our 5/8" Organza Ribbon and wrap it around the two pieces and secure on back. 
7.  Mount the piece onto the mat matching the flowers (I used Stampin' Dimensionals to give it some pop).  Lastly, you will mount the mat to the card base using the adhesive of choice. This is a super easy card but the finished look is WOW. 
That's all for now I hope you enjoy.  Until next, keep stamping!
