Howdy, friends! I hope your week is going great – tomorrow is Friday already and we are a week into January! Time is flying by! I’ve popped in to share a hybrid Mother’s Day card that I’m entering in The Outlawz Festive Fridays Challenge that ends this evening. Our sponsor is Fred She Said, and participants have the option to choose from New Year, Christmas, Thinking of You and Anything Goes themes – and I chose Anything Goes. I was in my studio all day and I think I set an all-time record… ten cards made in one day. I finished two that I started earlier in the week and then made eight more. I woke up with ideas running through my head so I knew it was going to be a productive day, lol!
I used a Create-A-Card die set to create the card base from white cardstock, then cut layers from red cardstock with the next smaller size die. I printed the focal image for the front and a single flower image for the inside, and cut them with the next smaller size layering die. I stamped the front sentiment in black ink on a scrap of white cardstock, trimmed it, and layered it on two additional pieces of cardstock for a little dimension. I adhered the panels together and then adhered them to the front of the card base, and then added some Crystal Drops.
I stamped the inside sentiment (from the same stamp set) in black ink, layered those two panels together and adhered them to the inside of the card base.
And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! I really do like the look of a shaped card!
