Happy Mother’s Day

May 11, 2020

I thought I would share with you the card that I made for my Mum for Mother’s Day.  As you are aware the Annual Catalogue is nearing it’s end.  Because of Social Isolation I haven’t been able to run my classes and so I have a lot of Designer Series Paper that I haven’t used.  So I am on a mission to use up as much as I can this month before they are all retired.  So today’s card uses more of the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.  I must admit that I love this paper, especially because you can colour it!  For this card, I cut a 5cm strip of the paper and coloured the flowers using the Dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend.  I die cut some Silver Glimmer Paper (also retiring) using the Delicate Lace Dies (another product retiring). I attached the coloured Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper onto the die cut before attaching it to Whisper White card.  The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Highland Heather card.  I used the “Happy Mother’s Day” stamp from the Strong and Beautiful stamp set to create the greeting.  This stamp has the greeting all on one line, so I inked the “happy” with Highland Heather ink and stamped onto Whisper White card.  I stamped onto scrap paper until there was no ink left on the “happy” and then I inked the “Mother’s Day” and stamped it below the “Happy” using Highland Heather ink.  I cut out the greeting using one of the Layering Ovals Dies.  I attached the greeting to a Highland Heather scalloped oval and then the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I coloured a narrow strip of the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper using the Dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend and attached it to the bottom of Whisper White card.  I cut a narrow strip of Silver Glimmer Paper and attached it so that it abutted the top of the Designer Series Paper.

I just love the way this looks and of course couldn’t resist creating more cards using different Stampin’ Blends, card and Glimmer Paper.  I created some using Cherry Cobbler and Gold Glimmer Paper and more cards using Flirty Flamingo and Sparkle Glimmer Paper.

I think they all look lovely.  I hope Mum loves her card as much as I do.

Bye for now,

Kris
