Manhattan Flower for Mom

My original focus for this blog post was going to revolve around using the brayer to create some lovely real-life rose colors using a variety of ink pads.  I was going to share how I  used Stampin'Up!'s Glossy White card stock (102599) and the Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder (114517) to create this lovely, springy Mother's Day card.  The glossy side of the card stock is 'debossed' so that when the brayer is rolled over it, the ink does not go down into the details of the flower folds.  This card uses  So Saffron, Peach Parfait, and Melon Mambo ink pads with the brayer to get the multi-color look on the roses.  
We made this card in my Technique Club for this month, and one of my club members changed her card up a little, since it was for her husband to give to his mom.  Stampin'UP!'s stamps are extremely versatile, especially when you remember you can only ink up part of the stamp with a marker!  Her mother-in-law will still get a beautiful, handmade card, it will just be a little more fitting with a tweak to the sentiment.
