Everything Eleanor Mother

I'm back from Fiji and trying to get back on my time zone!  It is proving much harder coming back than it was going there!  I keep wanting to stay up until 2:00 AM, waking up at 7:00 AM and then feel like taking a nap in the afternoon because I'm so tired!   I hope I can get back to a normal schedule soon!  Here's a picture of the morning sunrise on one of the days.  We would get up and walk along the beach before it got hot!  I picked up a few pretty shells, but never found the sand dollars that some were finding!



For my mother-in-law's card, I pulled out Everything Eleanor…I haven't used it for a while!  I paired it with Tea for Two Designer Paper.  Hope she likes it!  I made this before I left…I haven't touched a stamp in 2 weeks and am having serious withdrawal!  NEED to get into my room tomorrow, I want to make a few things for my daughter-in-law's baby shower next weekend.




Here are the details:

  1. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Crumb Cake, folded in half for base card.
  2. 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Whisper White, added a 1 1/2" x 5 1/4 strip of Tea for Two Designer Paper across the top.
  3. I wrapped a length of Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon around the back and adhered.
  4. I stamped the medallion from Everything Eleanor in Crumb Cake, then cut it out.  I stamped the Mother greeting from Delightful Dozen in Basic Black on top.  It is popped up on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. I stamped the flowers with Basic Black and Calypso Coral on Calypso Coral cardstock, cut them out and added to the front.
  6. I added pearls in the centers of the flowers.
  7. Finally, I stamped the bird in Basic Black on Whisper White, cut him out and placed on the top of the greeting.  There is a little pearl in his eye, too!

I think this has a vintage look to it, don't you?  To all the mothers out there, Happy Mother's Day!!!
