Today is the beginning of a new week, the sun is shinning and it looks like it's going to be a Beautiful day!! I hope all of the Moms out there had a Wonderful Mother's Day and enjoyed time with their families. We had a really nice day yesterday. We went to WI for a baptism and a baby shower. One of my Cousins and her husband had their first child, a sweet little baby girl, about a month ago and since they live a little ways away decided to combine the baptism and shower all on the same day. I made a baby card for them that I will share a little later this week but for today I want to share the card that I made for my mom for Mother's Day.
Here is the card that I gave to my Mom for Mother's Day. I was very happy with how it turned out and I love the flowers and the border on the side. The border was made using the Heirloom Scroll Border Grand S7-013 from Spellbinders. I also love how the flowers I made perfectly match the flowers in the image. The flowers were made using one of the flower die templates from Flower Bouquet S4-200 and the Wizard from Spellbinders along with some beautiful paper from Core'dinations, Whitewash Collection. The core color is kind of an orange and terra cotta mix and goes very nicely with the color from the images of the birds. After I made the the diecuts of the flowers then I sanded them to make the core color pop. I also added some ferns around the flowers and some Flower Soft. If you haven't ever used Flower Soft it is a really fun product to work with. It's easy to use and it adds so much dimension to your projects! For the center of the flowers I used some Flower Soft that is my own mix (Sunshine Yellow, Baby Peach and Nut Brown) and then for the greens I used another mix (Shamrock Green, Christmas Green). I really like the two greens mixed together and it gives it a more natural look of nature, because thing in nature are not all on color. The image of the birds is from Crafty Secrets, Birds & Botanicals Images and Journal Notes. All of the images in the booklet are just amazing! They are so beautiful and the detail to each image is unbelievable! I used the Labels Four S4-190 die template from Spellbinders to cut and emboss the image. I also added some beautiful velvet ribbon on the side and a little bit of bling.
