Strong & Beautiful Happy Mother's Day
To tag along with the Father's Day card I showed yesterday, I wanted to show another Mother's Day card I created a little while back that I absolutely love!
I wanted to keep the card very feminine and simple and chose Blushing Bride, Silver Foil and Whisper White for my colors.
I used the following cuts of cardstock:
Blushing Bride (card base): cut to 8½" x 5½", scored at 4¼"
Blushing Bride (sentiment): cut to ½" x 4¼"
Blushing Bride (detailed bands die): cut to 3" x 4¼"
Whisper White (for embossing): cut to 4" x 5¼"
Silver Foil (accent sentiment): ¾" x 4¼"
I also used the following die cut:
Blushing Bride: large detailed bands die
Using your paper trimmer, cut out the Blushing Bride cardstock to 8½ x 5½" and then score it at 4¼"
Insert the cut piece of Whisper White into the Scripty 3D embossing folder and run through your Big Shot (or equivalent)
Adhere the embossed Whisper White to your Blushing Bride card base using snail adhesive, centered
Cut out the large detailed bands die using your cut Blushing Bride cardstock
Get out your Take Your Pick tool, with brush tip, to easily clean up your die cut
Use the fine tip glue pen on the detailed bands die cut and glue to the Whisper White, centered, about 1" from the top of the card
Stamp the Happy Mother's Day sentiment from the Strong & Beautiful stamp set in Versamark ink onto your cut Blushing Bride cardstock
Cover the stamped sentiment in silver embossing powder and heat set it using your heat tool
Adhere the Blushing Bride sentiment strip to your cut silver foil strip
With Stampin' Dimensionals, pop the embossed sentiment centered over the detailed bands die cut
As a finishing touch, to add a little sparkly bling to the card, take some basic rhinestones, and add one to the beginning and end of your sentiment, then three above and three below the sentiment strip (centered - as pictured below)
I really love how this card turned out. Very feminine and with a classic look.
