Mothers Day Card



HELLO, ARE YOU THERE?  Remember me?
 
Have you made your Mom a card yet?  This is one of the Mothers Day cards I made today.  I tried to go simple but I just never seem to stop.  I picked up a 6x6 Paris Paper pack awhile back and this stamp.  They pair so pretty together. 
 


I stamped a french script, then layered this Eiffel Tower stamp and clear embossed.  Using inks and water I made the paper look old and weathered.  It's not talent, I'm just making a mess. 

I roughed up all the edges for a vintage look.  But really I'm hiding all my crooked cuts and mistakes.  See, bet you can't see what I real mess it is!

I just printed my sentiment on my printer for the inside of the card.  Then punched this MS border heart punch and a pretty simple layer.  

Printing the same sentiment I punched and glued it onto this acrylic block.  Then mounted it onto a little rosette flower I made using a piece of dictionary paper.  I just fan folded the paper, trimmed the edges and fluffed it out.  Ya, there's no way this is going into an envelope now!

For this Mothers Day Card I used 3 different stamps, a bunch of scrap paper and a little imagination.  I really love how it turned out! 

Are you shocked to see a new post from me?  GEEZ WHERE HAVE I BEEN!  I am getting a new roof so I have been super busy with all that non crafty stuff!  My craft room was dusty even!  SHAME!
