Mother’s Day is right around the corner so now is the time to start working on that perfect card for the World’s Best Mother! I could go on and on about why my Mom is the best but I’m sure you all could! To be honest, I’m not sure whether this card will go to my Mom or not. I have a couple ideas for her card and just don’t know which one is best! Maybe I’ll just send her a card every day the week before Mother’s Day with each one saying why she is so fabulous. Wouldn’t that be wonderful……good idea Laura! 🙂 (I’m working on the World’s Best Daughter Award! hehe) Let’s get started on this beauty!
I started with a Whisper White card base and stamped the greeting from the A Nice Cuppa Stamp Set (retiring) in the bottom right corner in Rose Red. Then I took a piece of Old Olive measuring 4-1/4″ x 5″ and placed the vine framelit from the Botanical Builder Framelits diagonal towards the bottom of the cardstock. I ran it through the Big Shot and that is how I created that beautiful vine piece. I placed that on the card lined up with the top. Then I added various flowers which were die cut from the Botanical Builder Framelits. The center flower is in Rose Red and I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up! The next flowers were done in Pumpkin Pie and I adhered them flat to the card. The little centers were done in Daffodil Delight and I adhered them on with the Fine Tip Glue Pen! The last flowers were die cut in Elegant Eggplant and popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added some Pearls to a few of the flowers for a little bling! You could really do any assortment of colors and use up some scraps you have laying around! Love it!
