To create my card, I took my inspiration from a magnolia tree that is on the property of the house where I grew up. This magnolia was planted by my grandfather some 65+ years ago. The house has been sold, but the tree remains. That tree is magnificent when in bloom. Every spring we would enjoy its grandeur and pray that a late frost would not come and destroy the flowers.
t used Simon Says Stamp Magnolia 3D EF. I brushed color on it in pinks, greens and browns and ran it through the Big Shot. I used the debossed side and added a little more color. I added a die cut sentiment from STAMPlorations and my card was complete. My beautiful mother died this past September. She loved that tree. Magnolias always put me in mind of her.
