Another Mother's Day card that is fun and easy to make, that any Mother would be happy to receive this Sunday. I started with a natural card stock base folded to an A2 size card. I then took a handwriting stamp from Oriental Trading Co.and stamped it twice on the card front with London Fog grey Memento ink. I then took three colors of Gelatos, (Lemon, Tangerine, and Buttercream) and smeared them on in vertical stripes. I then took a baby wipe and gently blended the colors, rubbing in a circular motion. (lightest color to darkest) Let the card dry completely.
While the card is drying, I got my papers and flower die, leaves, and hummingbird die together with my Cuttlebug machine. The dies are from Dee's Distinctively- A Cut Above, and I used Stardream Metallic Papers from the Classy Cards 'N Such online store. For the hummingbird, I used Neenah Metallic White Gold card stock and Stardream Fuse Azalea. The Bell Flowers and Leaves were cut from Stardream Azalea and Stardream Emerald. The Stardream papers are so beautiful with a lovely metallic sheen that doesn't show up well on film. But the cards, in person, are stunning! The flowers and birds feathers are shaped with a ball stylus so that they appear 3D on the card. The sentiment words came from the Parentville stamp set from Winnie & Walter, llc.
I am submitting this card to the Classy Cards 'N Such Weekly Challenge #31, Mother's Day
I hope you have enjoyed this card, you still have time to make your Mother a beautiful handmade card and gift, if you so wish. Have a great weekend, and don't forget to celebrate Mother's Day with your Mother!
