Mothers Day

With Mothers Day fast approaching I got on and made a card for my Mum. After buying these wonderful stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations, I stamped and cut out loads before thinking about how to put them together. The stamps have a wonderful paper pad that came with them but after buying a collection of embossing folders from Crafters Companion I thought I would try and combine the two. Although the embossing folder I've used is like Parquet flooring, I also thought it looked like fence panels. So with this in mind I embossed some craft card and then distressed with Vintage Photo, going around the edges with renaissance gold gilding wax. Next I coloured the stamped and die cut pieces with spectrum noir pencils, I also edged the flowers with Crystal Stickles to give it a bit of a sparkle, they were then all shaped with a large ball tool before placing onto the card base. I finished using die cuts from Tonic which I cut out of Gold mirri card and black card, placing the gold over the black to give it a bit of a shadow.



Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
