Hope that all the moms had an enjoyable Mother's Day. Mine was very nice and the weather could not have been more perfect!
The past few days have been busy with other commitments so this Monday's project share is the Mother's Day card that I made and mailed to my mother. In addition, I sent her an FTD bouquet - look at how the card and flowers coordinated!!! Mom loved both. Thanks to my sister, Sharon, for sending me the photo of the flowers.
|Mother's Day Card using Secret Garden Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!|
The card design is a variation of the birthday card shared last week. The base on the Mother's Day card is Tempting Turquoise card stock and the large flower from the Secret Garden Stamp set was added using the Classic Stampin' Pad in the same color onto the Whisper White CS base. Daffodil Delight Classic Stampin' Pad and a smaller flower from the same set was stamped into the center of each of the Tempting Turquoise flowers using the "stamp off, stamp on" technique as describe in the earlier post. Old Olive Classic Stampin' Pad was used for the leaves. After stamping the Whisper White CS with the flowers and leaves, the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder was used to add additional dimension to the card. The sentiment was added along with stamped and cut flower and leaves using the Secret Garden Framelits and Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine. Stampin' Dimensionals were used to adhere the flower and leaves to the sentiment band.
Today the "Flowers are Blooming" card class was held and each of the attendees was able to prepare four different flower themed cards. For three of the ladies, it was their first time attending one of my card classes and they did great! The classes are always lots of fun.
That's it for today...I'm planning for next month's card class and will share a sample on Thursday.
