Hi everyone. Well Mother's day is tomorrow, Sunday, May 10th and of coarse I made a card to post for the special occasion. I used many different products for this card and will explain how I made it below.
For starters I used white card measuring 5 x 7. Then I cut a piece of white card measuring 4.75 X 6.75, using the Martha Stewart punch, "doily", I punched the longer sides of the card. Then using the largest die, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Decorative Labels Eight, I cut the label out of white cardstock. Then using Create and Craft, Die-Lectables Baroque Ovals die, CCC-024, using the middle sized die, I cut the oval out of white card stock. I stamped the sentiment, from a Hero Arts stamp set I have. #CL498 in VersaMark and the sprinkled it with Red embossing powder. Then I used my heat tool and embossed the sentiment. Then I made a tiny bow from red grosgrain ribbon and attached it to my sentiment.
The heart was created using the Timeless Amour die from Heartfelt Creations, I cut two from red cardstock and with carful placement I adhered them to my card front. The leaves were created using white card and the Spellbinders Foliage Flourish die, S4-430, cutting two of these and the Cut Mat Create 2A, Heartfelt Creations die HCD2-751, cutting two of these and cutting the die cuts in half. I used green ink and a finger applicator to ink the edges of the leaf foliage leaving some areas white.
I used the Arianna Blooms Collection, HCD 748 and HCPC 3608 for the flowers. I stamped the flowers on red cardstock with my VersaMark and then sprinkled them with white embossing powder. Then I used my heat gun to melt the powder for an embossed effect. I added little pearls from my stash for the center of the blooms.
Well, I hope you like this creation and would leave me a comment. Have a wonderful day and for all the beautiful, fabulous, hard working moms out there, Happy Mother's day.
Hi. I am a blessed wife and mother of a wonderful 6 yr old little boy. I have always had some type crafting in my life. At a young age my mother taught me how to sew on our family pool table, which I thought was so cool. Then as teen a family friend taught me cross stitching and I did that up until I saw an Anna Griffin Christmas card making kit on HSN for sale. I bought it and haven't looked back. I love it. I'm addicted. Anyways, I hope you enjoy my site and I hope you are inspired to create something beautiful. I am looking forward to hearing your comments and hope you come back frequently to see what I have for you. Blessings and Peace to you. Diane
