I seem to be on a roll with these Mother's Day cards. You know how it is to be on a roll with something. So of course, today I have one more to share with you. For this particular one, I went back to the beautiful rosettes I like to make. Let's get going on this card.
For my color scheme, I chose to use Blushing Bride, Whisper White, and Basic Black (only for the words). I started with a base card of Blushing Bride cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4". Next I cut a piece of Whisper White to be 3 3/4" x 3 3/4". I used my ticket corner punch on the corners of this and then ran it through the big shot using an impression folder called Intricate Swirl. I took my Blushing Bride marker and colored the tiny dots on the embossing just to add a little color. The edges were brushed using the Blushing Bride ink. The square was then attached using runner adhesive.
Here is a close up of the rosette. I started with a strip of designer paper cut at 1 3/4" x 12". I then scored it at every quarter inch. I accordion folded the score lines and attached the ends together. It is adhered on the back using sticky strip. I added a 1" white circle, a 3/4" blush circle, and a 1/2" white circle. I took a white pearl and colored it using a light pink Sharpie marker. The rosette is attached to the white using sticky strip. I also added some dazzling diamond glitter to the white circles on the top.
For the greeting, I turned to my Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. I started with a frame from the Four Frames stamp set and stamped it in Blushing Bride on Whisper White. Next I stamped the greeting using Basic Black ink inside the frame. I let it sit for a few minutes so the ink would be dry. Once it was dry, I punched it out using the decorative label punch. I attached it using runner adhesive to the card and added another pearl colored with the same pink Sharpie.
This card had that simple elegance factor to it. I love the look of it and know any mom out there would love to get this on Mother's Day.
Well I am off and running. I am going to take my sister in law to a doctor appointment and then spend the rest of my day with my hubby!! Tomorrow I will share the card I made for him for our anniversary. Thank you so much for stopping by today. See you tomorrow.
