Mother's Day 2016 Series - Card 8
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a great day.
Welcome to the eighth installment in the 2016 Mother's Day series. Apparently this one is sneaking up on me as well. I can't believe it is less than a week away. Luckily I'm on the ball for this one, and I have a few ready to go for you.
I borrowed this die set from a friend last week, with grand ideas on what was going to happen. This was not one of those ideas. This sort of just happened. (And to be honest, I have not yet completed a single one of those grand plans.)
To begin, I used Distress Ink on some heavy-weight Bristol Smooth cardstock. For the rose, I used Worn Lipstick and for the leaf sprig I used Mowed Lawn, then die cut them out. I used the positive portion of the die cut (negative? The part you would normally throw in the recycling) as a stencil to shade directly on the card panel. I used Spun Sugar and Twisted Citron.
Once they were dry, I adhered the die cuts over the shaded area to create a dimensional two-toned rose.
The panel is a shimmering white cardstock. I really like this cardstock as the Distress allows for the shimmer to shine through. The greeting is stamped using Memento Tuxedo black ink.
To complete the card, I added a scattering of soft pink sequins across the panel.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of our own.
