Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Thursday, friends! Have you any April Fool’s Jokes planned to play on anybody?! I can’t believe how fast this year is going by! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #144 – Spring Forward! Yep, we want to see your Spring-themed projects! I’m sharing a pretty Mother’s Day card that I was commissioned to make which features a gorgeous heat embossed Clearly Besotted floral spray. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with a card like this! Mother’s Day is almost upon us so you’ll be seeing a few scattered about my blog! ;)

I cut a standard A2 sized top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock along with slightly smaller white and pink layering panels. I stamped the floral image in black ink on the white panel and then in Versamark (right over the top of the black ink), and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I’ve mentioned many times that this is a trick I discovered years and years ago to give virtually any color embossing. ;) I colored the image with alcohol markers and stamped the sentiment. I adhered the panel to the pink layer and then adhered the piece to the card base. The final touch was adding Crystal Drops.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and kept it simple with just a stamped sentiment and layering the panel on the pink cardstock.

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out!

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

  1. AW! This is beautiful and loving too. Love it.
    We have already had our Mother’s Day in the UK, it’s always the 4th Sunday in Lent and follows the Religious calendar.
