Mother’s Day Card

Last year I did not pay attention to the fact Mother’s day was right around the corner so I was left scrambling to create my Mother’s day cards.  This year I am a head of the game!!  If you have noticed I have been exploring the different types of special fold cards there are out there.  I picked the cascading card to design for my Mother’s day card as it could resemble a bouquet of flowers.  This card could easily be converted to any occaion card just by changing the sentiment.  You will see in a future post that I changed the sentiment for my May workshop.

For this card I used Kraft cardstock for the base and then used on of my boarder punches to give it the unique detail.  I then cut Lagoon cardstock to fit on each of the panels.  Using the Perfect fit – Mom stamp set I stamped the sentiment in Gypsy.  I used my Silhouette to cut out the flowers and leaves that match up with the flowers and leaves from the Girls Rock stamp set. I then used Gypsy, Buttercup, Pear, Smoothie and Lagoon inks to stamp the flowers.  For one of the smaller flowers I used the Happy Thoughts and for the Mom stamp insert in the larger flower I used the Perfect Fit – Mom stamp set. I also used the April SOTM’s adorable bird and stamped it using a two tone effect.

Once I photographed this card I realized it really needed something else so I went back and added Bitty Opaques and Sparkles.  Notice the difference?  it really completed the card.
