Happy mother’s day

2/8/21 Rising Star at A Place To Start!

Howdy, friends! I hope your week is going great – tomorrow is Friday already and we are a week into January! Time is flying by! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! 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 cut the card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar 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 on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, and cut them with the next smaller size layering die. I stamped the front sentiment in black ink on a scrap of Neenah Classic Crest Solar 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 on the Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock panel, adhered it to the Tomato Soup panel, 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!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  4. I’m stunned to already see a Mother’s Day card in January, but that’s amazing you were having a great crafty work session to get so many cards made in 1 day! This Mom’s card is very pretty and the CAS layout lets the flowers really have the focus! Thanks for sharing at APTS challenge blog!–Becca/DT
