So I thought I'd take a break from showing you cards for valentine's day and cards with hearts today and show you the Mother's day card that we made on Monday at card club.
Stamp Set: Everything Eleanor, For my Family
Ink: Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose, Early Espresso
Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla
I first stamped the large frame in Pretty in Pink at the bottom of the Vanilla cardstock. then covered it in a mask of the same shape (cut out of printer paper and with tombow - gone tacky and removeable) and stamped the flourishes in the background for some height and depth. Remove the mask and then ink up the fancy frame, I stamped off on scrap paper for a lighter look and then stamped to the side of the large frame. Next I added the sentiment and the birdie in Early Espresso as well as stamping some of the flowers on some scrap Vanilla. I also ran the edges of the Vanilla cardstock on the Espresso ink pad for a very slight touch of colour before adhering it to the Certainly Celery card base. I coloured in the flowers with Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose to get a deep shaded effect and help them pop out from the subtle background. I used dimensionals to adhere them to the card and finished off with pearls.
This is a lovely card that showcases almost every single stamp in this stunning set! It was one of my favourites and still it! I love it!!
