Mother's Day Card


I know, I know. I forgot to upload my Mother's Day Card. I am not a card maker really. Hence, when we recently had a scrapping session with friends here, a friend of ours, Alby, challenged us to make one. It gave me an excuse to make a card for my mom for the first time in what, 20-30 years?!!! Of course, the effort was well worth it because my mom was very surprised to find out that it was handmade by me.

I decided to use a number of stamps for both the card and the envelope. I wanted to use one of my "virgin" stamps, a BG Grow-a-Garden clear stamps of branches. By combining it with the leaves of the Stampin' Up Wild Rose, plus the En Francaise script, I was able to make a scene that turned out very feminine especially with the colors I used.

Materials: misc. card + envelope, miscellaneous paper flowers & leaves, Ancient Page Plum Wine, Color Box Moss Green, StazOn Olive Green, StazOn Brown. Stamps used: BG Grow-a-Garden, Stampin' Up Wild Rose, Stampin' Up En Francaise.

Techniques Used: Stamping, blending, dry embossing.
