Attic Boutique Mother card

Once in a while I like to go thru my "starts" pile and randomly pick out some items to put together as a card.  You know what "starts" are…those half finished items that never made it onto the card you were working on.  That is how I built this card…out of all starts except for the base of So Saffron!



I made two of the flowers several months ago and only used one.  I used the Blossom Punch in the Occasions Mini and punched two of them with So Saffron cardstock.  I spritzed them with water, crumpled them up and added Early Espresso ink around the edges.  I added two 5 layer flower punches of Early Espresso in the center, spritzing and inking the same.  The center is a 3/4" circle punched from the Attic Boutique Designer Paper with a neutral brown Shimmer Brad in the center.  I layered it on a 2 3/8" Scallop Circle of Pool Party cardstock.


The base of the card is So Saffron and I added a layer of Soft Suede cardstock.  I had a scrap of the Attic Boutique Designer Paper that fit the bottom perfectly.  I wrapped around some Pool Party Seam Binding Ribbon and tied a knot.  The top was a scrap of Very Vanilla cut and embossed with the Adorning Accents curved die and folder that I had already made.  I trimmed it to fit the top of my card and added the mother greeting from Delightful Dozen stamp set in Soft Suede.  I call this Clean & Simple Vintage!  lol!

Beautiful card.  I love the colors and it's perfect for Mother's Day and would be proud to receive a card like this if it was presented to me by a loving daughter.    You are so creative and talented.
