Mother's Day Card {05.29.2017}

A little late to post, but this is the card I made for my mother-in-law, for Mother's Day. She loves flowers, and this card really seemed just right for her. I really like it. Let's check out what I made for her.

I used Lawn Fawn's Happy Happy Happy sentiment and coordinating die cuts. I also die cut part of the sentiment with a Spellbinders die (but can't remember the name. Oops.) I blended some blue ink onto the edge of the sentiment label to give it some depth and match it to the entire card a little bit. To create the sentiment, I stamped the sentiment in black ink, then sprinkled on Sparkle N Sprinkle's Clear Detail embossing powder and heat set it. I did this before I die cut it.

My mother-in-law really likes flowers, so I whipped out some flowers from my stash and layered them around the patterned paper and cardstock layers I die cut (again, with that magical, unknown Spellbinders die!). I adhered the flowers with my hot glue gun, and burnt my fingers only once!

And, to finish off the card, I stamped a sentiment, from Taylored Expressions' My Favorite Mom stamp set, in Versamark Ink, sprinkled on Sparkle N Sprinkle's White Detail embossing powder, and heat set it.

This card packs a punch, is pretty, has lots of layers and dimension, and still came together pretty quickly. I hope my mother-in-law liked it!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!

  1. LOL! You had me on this beauty, Chris! I was looking at the loveliness in the blue tones, and the designer papers, only to see how fun the sentiment is! It's great to feel so good about yourself, and awesome you ARE! Well done, Chris's mom! LOL hugs, de

  2. This is really awesome! Love all the dimension that you were able to create and the sentiment really came out beautifully. Gorgeous flowers too.
