Good afternoon, today I have a quick post to share with you. I have been busy making Mothers day cards to sell in my boxes at school and at the gym, but the last two days I have been working on my own mum’s mothers day card. For this I used the sketch over at Try Stampin on Tuesday. I don’t often make square cards but it was nice doing something different. Here is the sketch:
I have used Rose Red as my base colour and then used Flirtatious specialty paper and a strip of So Saffron paper stack as my patterned paper. For the stamp set I have used Greenhouse Garden in So Saffron and Soft Suede I got my colour combo from the Colour Coach. I have added some thread around the front and added two little tags to finish off the sentiment I had a bit of trouble finding these words small enough to fit in the tag and also most sayings, seem to say “for you”, not “to you”. Anyway I found this one on the stamp set Under the Big Top. I used my markers to ink up only these two words, then punched it out. For the 3-D flower I cut out 4 more flowers and sprayed them with water and scrunched them up. I used a brad for the centre.
Here is my card:
The inside: I placed my flowers in the opposite corner:
With the envelope:
Now to get them in the post, my mum will be surprised to get it on time. (i am always late with my cards)
