Happy Mother's Day

Hi there

Today I'm sharing a card I've made for my chap's mum for Mother's Day.

I wanted to have a go at the latest challenge at Uniko Studio where Bev has set us the theme of 'Hello Spring'.  We also have a lovely photo and colour palette to use as inspiration which I've shown below.

Here's what I created...

And this is the inspiration photo...

I started by using a scrap of white cardstock and stamped one of the images from the Natures Treasures 1 stamp set to create a delicate background in pale blue and green ink.  I then overstamped the leaves and the bloom from Flower Power sets 1 and 3.  I used a square die to create the inked panel which was matted onto a square of green textured cardstock.  I stamped part of the sentiment on the panel and then the rest of the sentiment on the base card before adhering the panel using 3D foam.  I finished it off with a single green pearl.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Uniko Studio - Natures Treasures 1, Flower Power #1 and Flower Power #3; Clearly Besotted Stamps - Happy Days sentiment)
  • Ink: Versa Color - Baby Blue, Seafoam, Celadon, Sky Blue, Royal Blue
  • Die: Xcut - Nested Squares
  • Cardstock: Green - Papermania Premium Textured Cardstock; white from stash
  • Green pearl from stash

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Dream Valley - Challenge 78 - Mothering Sunday
Charisma Cardz - Challenge #7 - CAS
Crafty Catz - Challenge 224 - Anything Goes
