I pray you all are having a fabulous week!! I know I have been away for awhile and I apologize for that but please know that I thought about you all and each of you were in my thoughts and prayers.
I have been working on a bunch of projects but the reason why you haven't seen them is because of a lack of memory space in my computer. I have been diligently trying to clear the computer of all unneeded files and programs. I still have a ways to go but I have cleared enough room to import photos from my camera and show you all that I have been working on.
***I have to give a big THANK YOU to Sandy O @ Paper Transformer for reminding me to get it into high gear and create my Mother's Day cards! :D ***
So, this blog will be about my Mother's Day card. I am really please with how this came out and I am really proud of myself. I pray you like it. Please let me know your thoughts. So without further delay...
...Here it is!
I used a piece of Paper from K&Company. I think it is called Garden Paradise; I know that it is an old collection but I thought it was perfect. The card base is a cream color that I cut at 6 1/4" x 9 and folded in half to make a 6 1/4" x 4 1/2" card. I cut a piece of tan card stock at 6" x 4 1/4" and then cut the patterned paper at 5 3/4 x 4. I wanted a very thin border on this card.
I adhered a piece of chocolate brown ribbon onto a piece of cream antique lace and then wrapped it around the patterned paper and tan mat. I used my Cricut Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and cut an oval at 2 1/2" in the tan color and another at 2 1/4" in the patterned paper and adhered them together. Then I used the Nature's Garden Watercolor Alphabet Stickers by Colorbok to spell out MOM. I propped the sentiment on some 3D dimensional stickers, added an little bling from K&Company and viola!
I added some cream flowers to the side of the sentiment and the curly wire. Then I took some glitter glue writer in crystal by Deco Art and outlined the flower petals, leaf and curly wire. Then I added the butterfly and added the glitter to the butterfly. Finally I added the K&Company bling to the corners and the front of the card was done.
Can you see the sparkle? I tried to really capture the twinkle on the flowers but my camera wouldn't behave.
I blurred out the written part of the card but here is the inside. I didn't want to waste any part of this beautiful paper so I made the open oval part a picture window and filled it with butterflies and covered the butterflies with the glitter.
The camera really captured the twinkle on the butterflies here. I love how this card came out. I pray my Mom likes it as well.
Alright amigos, it's time to go for now but until we meet again; thanks for sharing your time with me.
To all the virtuous women! "...Many daughters have done virtuously, nobly, and well [with strength of character that is steadfast in goodness], but you excel them all." ~Proverbs 31:10-31 AMP
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
