Happy Mother's Day to all the women folk who are Mothers, Grandmothers and Great, Great Great Grand ones too!
Well, today I haven't got one card to show, but two - and also I'm here not just to wish you lovely ladies out there who have a Mothering role - these include being Mummy to fur babies too (winks) but also to say that sadly, today is also the last day of our 2019 Sale-a-bration extravaganza! Did you manage to get all the freebies on your wish list?
Back to celebrating Mothering Sunday!
In this first card, I stamped the potted plant in the top left corner, then embossed with the Petal Pair TIEF, attached the ribbon and die cut six "M"s and two "U"s. I adhered 3 layers to each letter to add strength and sponge daubed the top letters in Mango Melody before adhering it to the middle layer of letters. The bottom letters were cut on Mango Melody card stock which had a multi-purpose adhesive sheet on the back, so I didn't have to get messy with glue!
Here's the inside of the card, which, as you can see is just a bit of quick stamping.
For my second card I used the Stamparatus to position my stamp "because of YOU" and stamped on vellum card stock several times for as intense black colour as I could get stamping with Stazon so that it wouldn't smudge. I let it dry properly before wrapping it round to the back of the card front layer to secure it.
I also wrapped a piece of the Granny Apple Green textured ribbon in the middle of the vellum to help anchor the vellum card stock to the front of the card layer.
The right side of the card front was embossed with the floral Petal Pair TIEF. I stamped the daisy twice and punched them out then staggered them for a fuller daisy to embellish the card with.
Inside the card - more simply stamped sentiment and a little daisy.
