Pink Petals

Hi! My name is Alishia and I am a KraftaholicMommy!

It never ceases to amaze me how beautiful a sunrise can be. I have been working like crazy in the craft room on making a card for my grandmother. Once a month, I make a point to send her a little card to make her smile. So, I thought I would share my creation today.



Base: Black 5 1/2” by 8 1/2” scored at 4 1/4”

First layer (2): Hot Pink 5 3/8” by 4 1/8”

Second layer (2): Darker Pink 5 1/4” by 4”

Third layer (2): White 5 1/8” by 3 7/8”


Stampin’ Up Melon Mambo

My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink Extreme Black

Other Supplies

Fiskars Paper Trimmer

Tim Holtz Stamping Tool

Stampin’ Up Simply Scored Scoring Tool

Elmers Tape Runner

Park Lane 1/4” foam squares

Park Lane Rhinestones

Envelope size A2

Step One:

Cut all of your paper. I like cutting a couple of extra papers for my stamped images. If I mess up, or if I don’t like the way it comes together. I tend to test things out, I like to stamp a couple of different designs and choose from there, having the extra pieces helps with that.

Step Two:

Now comes the fun part, using my Tim Holtz Stamping Tool. I chose a few different flowers and using the Melon Mambo ink, I tried out a few different designs. I also tried other inks, however, I couldn’t quite land on anything. That is, until, I worked up the design here. I added my sentiment at the bottom right in My Favorite Things Extreme Black Hybrid ink.

Step Three:

At this point, using Elmer’s Tape Runner I adhered my pink paper (5 1/4” by 4”) to my hot pink piece(5 3/8” by 4 1/8”). Then, with one set of the layered pinks, I adhered my white layer(5 1/8” by 3 7/8”) on top. I layered that on the inside of my card and layered my other set of layered pinks on the front of my card.

Step Four:

Turning my attention back to my stamped piece, I used my Park Lane Rhinestones to decorate my flowers. I also put one of my tiny rhinestones on each of the dots for the “I’s” in my sentiment. I then added my foam squares on the back of my stamped piece and layered that on the front of my card.

At this point I was finally finished with this card. I really kind of love the way that this card turned out. I wrote my message inside to my grandmother, addressed the envelope and I am all set to put the card in the mail.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post. If you did, feel free to give this a like, comment, and share so others can enjoy this as well. Also, if you decide to make this card, feel free to share it with me on my Facebook at also feel free to give me a follow on Instagram at I do post often on both of these platforms.

God Bless!

Happy Krafting!
