Mother's Day will be here before you know it. I have four cards I try to send; my mother, mother-in-law and my children's two godmothers. With so many special cards to make and so little time on my hand I decided to use the sketch over at Mojo Monday:
Here is my card:
I started with a Watermelon Wonder card base. I truly love this color and will definitely miss it when its gone. I feel like I didn't really appreciate it as much until the last few months. I added several layers of the Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP. I love the bright florals mixed with the copper. I added an embossed strip of the Copper Foil and a Mint Macaron doily. The sentiment is heat embossed with Copper embossing powder and layered on some Night of Navy. I added some loops of the Copper Metallic thread for a little extra shine.
I love how this card turned out. I had started going in one direction and ended up somewhere totally different. A lot of these goodies are retiring, the DSP, doilies, and stamps set. Make sure you have gotten everything you want from the retirement list, because its going fast! For more Mother's Day cards, head over to SSI.
