To A Wonderful Mom

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday! I hope you’ve been having some fun this week and not working too hard! I’ve popped in this morning to share an awesome Tape Runner DT inspiration project! I’ve been making a few commissioned Mother’s Day cards, and this one is earmarked for my daughter-in-law so I hope she doesn’t see this post before the card arrives… it’ll be close so fingers crossed! Of course, all panels were adhered with Retractable Tape Runner. This card turned out so pretty with all the gold embossing which really pops on the glossy black cardstock.

As mentioned above, all panels were adhered with Tape Runner. I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with a roughly two-thirds size panels from glossy black cardstock and gold metallic foil cardstock. I stamped the Brutus Monroe Botanical background stamp onto the glossy black cardstock in Versamark and heat embossed it with Ranger gold embossing powder. I adhered the panel to the gold metallic foil panel and then to the card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Prickley Pear Stamps Spring Scalloped Circles stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, trimmed it and adhered it to the card base on 1-mm thick foam squares. The finishing touch was adding several Taylored Expressions Gold Drip Drops.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of gold metallic foil cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in black ink and layered the panel on glossy black cardstock.

And one more peek… really loving how this turned out and Tape Runner is definitely my favorite adhesive for getting panels to stick nicely. And I can’t believe the gold metallic foil actually looks gold and not black in these photos! Win-Win!

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
