One of the cards I like making each year is Mother's Day cards. I have three Mum's who I send a card too so if you see some more cards popping up, that's why. I have my Mum, my partner's Mum and my son's Grandma who has been like a Mum to me the past few years, and I make a card for each of them. I make them all different so three lots of Mum's make for three different challenges lol Anyway, this is for Mum No. 1. I haven't decided which one it is going to go to yet! This weeks challenge over at Dream Valley Challenges is Mother's Day so I have the perfect excuse to make the first one. Why not pop over and have a look, it's a new challenge blog and we're all very friendly!
The image I have used for this stamp is Tiddly Ink's Mother's Day freebie and I think it's just so cute! Their challenge is Lucky Me and green is supposed to be a luck colour isn't it? I have coloured using promarkers, tan, cinnamon, antique pink and ruby. I have then cut it out using one of my x-cut oval cutters. I have followed the challenge sketch from A Spoonfull of Sugar and have used a selection of bought green-based papers to build up the card, the dark green paper at the very back I made myself using a stamp, embossing powders and inks. The ribbon is from stock. To tie everything together I have used faux stitching around all the different pieces and also on the letters which I cut using my sizzix.
I would like to enter this for the following challenges:
