A VERY SPECIAL MOTHER'S DAY CARD

It has been awhile since I updated by blog. After having pneumonia and getting behind in my card making, I had time to reflect on all the new ideas and techniqus I want to try. I will be posting more frequently so please come back and visit often.

This is a card I made for my mother for Mother's Day. It is not my usual style, but I do like the way it turned out. What do you think? She will be 80 in July and I think this style will please her.

There is a lot of detail on this card. I used punches, that I have had forever but don't use much. I will definitely start using them more after seeing how much they add to the card. I finished off the card by adding ribbon and a heart charm.

You can click on the picture to get a close up.

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.


The stamp is Romantic Rose by Stampin Up. I stamped it in gold and embossed it with gold glitter and colored it with copics.
I popped the rose up twice to give it dimension.

The inside of the card turned out better than I thought it would. I used nestabilities and punches.
I hope you enjoyed seeing this card and would love to hear from you.
