This weeks challenge is to make a card for mom with hand made flowers.
This is a hard one for me to do as I lost my mother 3 years ago. But I always
take flowers and hand made card to her resting place on Mothers day.
So, here is the card that I made for her.
My mother loved purple so I chose purple for her this year. I used my border
embosser to make the flowers in the corner. For the lacy edge I used one of
Martha Stewarts edge punch. I love her punches. I layed a solid piece of purple
over top so that just the scallops showed.
Here you get a much better look at the embossed flowers and the lacy edge.
My oval was cut with my Bigkicks and oval spellbinders cutter. I then ran it
through my Dotted Swiss embossing folder for more texture. The flowers were
stamped and fussy cut. I layed the leaves flat and placed pop dots on the flower
to lift it off the page some.
Here you can see that I put swirls under the oval, punched out a butterfly, again
using Martha Stewart's punch and hand cut the sentiment tag and used black
stickers for the word Mom. I know that if my mother was her she would absolutely
love this card.
