5/3/21 Top Sprout at A Place To Start!

Hi everybody! Hope you’ve had a great weekend! I’m working on a few more commissioned Mother’s Day cards and have popped in this evening with another one to share! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! This card features the ‘Mom’ stamps and dies from Pretty Pink Posh and I think I’m in love! I really enjoyed coloring these florals and designing this clean and simple card!

I stamped the floral MOM letters on Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock, colored them with Bic Mark-Its and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I cut a standard A2 size top-folding landscape card base and layering panel from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock along with a slightly larger layering panel and another set of MOM letters from CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock. I die cut the word ‘happy’ from CutCardStock Raspberry Ice cardstock thinking ‘never in a million years would I have ever thought I would pair pink with red’ – but it totally worked on this design! I adhered the layering panels together, then adhered them to the card base. I adhered the floral letters to the red cardstock letters, off-setting them just a bit, and adhered them to the card front. I stamped the sentiment in black ink beneath the die cut letters, and the finishing touch was adding the pink die cut ‘happy’ just above the sentiment.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory 80# cardstock, stamped the sentiment and layered the panel on CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock.

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! And yep, I like the pops of pink and red together! ;)

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
