It took me a long time to decide on a design for a Mother’s Day card. While working on the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge (stay tuned for this post :-), I was inspired by a card made by Kate, one of Lawn Fawn’s Design Team Members. She inspired me to use pink plaid paper and fairies. Unfortunately, I do not have any fairy stamp sets, so I went with flowers – which is always good for Mother’s Day, don’t you think?
From the largest of the Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Rectangles-dies, I die-cut a panel out of white cardstock. Using the second biggest rectangle, I die-cut another panel from pink plaid paper from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid Spring paper collection. From this paper, I die-cut one of the Circle Stackables-dies to make an opening for the sentiment. I glued the white panel and the plaid panel together using tape runner.
The sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn stamp set Happy Happy Happy. I inked it in Wild Rose ink (by Lawn Fawn) and stamped it inside the circle.
On white cardstock, I stamped some of the flowers from the stamp set Fab Flowers (by Lawn Fawn). For these images, I used the following ink pads by Lawn Fawn:
- Mermaid and Peacock (roses)
- Grape Soda and Sugarplum (flowers)
- Jalapeno and Freshly Cut Grass (leaves)
- Sugarplum and Walnut (butterfly)
I adhered everything together using liquid glue. Only the rose in the middle and the butterfly were added with foam tape to make them stand out. The panel was then adhered onto a US standard sized cardbase (4.25 x 5.5 inch).
As a finishing touch, I added glitter to the butterfly with the Wink of Stellar brush pen and added some dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops by Tonic Studios (colour: Ivory Seashell).
I am wishing a Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers out there! Have a happy day!
