I have been wanting to create a card using the Forever Young stamp set. Once I started inking up the tree in Certainly Celery, I knew that I could add Marina Mist to the kid on the swing and this could be a card that went with the Pals Paper Arts challenge this week. I played around with adding different frames around the image. I was trying to create the look of seeing the tree/kid on the swing image through a window. I attached the stamped image with adhesive and added it flat to the card base. To give the frame some dimension, I added strips from the edge of the dimensionals (the skinny/partial dimensions around the edges of the dimensionals sheet) to the frame itself. Once added to the card base, I realized it could use a small greeting somewhere around the edge. I knew Mother's Day is the next holiday quickly approaching so I decided this would make a great card for my mother and my mother-in-law. I also tried a few different color card bases and frames to see what I liked best which gave me two extra cards for my birthday stash.

|Changed out the frame for a Labels Collection Framelit layer and changed the greeting|
- Use a 5 1/4" x 4 1/8" piece of cardstock for cutting out your frame with a Labels Collection Framelit. Otherwise your frame will fall apart since the framelit will be too close to the edge of the card stock.
- Stamp your greeting before attaching to your card base.
- Adhere your flowers using a glue dot in the middle of the punched out flower. Then, lift all the edges to make the flowers three-dimensional.
