Today’s Bloggers’ Challenge is to create a Mother’s Day card for mom or any other special person. Well…silly me. I mailed off my Mother’s Day cards without taking a picture and realizing what the challenge was this week! So…I quickly made up another one, but changed the greeting on this one since I didn’t need another Mom card…just pretend it says Happy Mother’s Day…ok? lol!
I showed you a card the other day made with the Reinker Watercolor technique and this uses the same. I stamped the Soft Summer set Dogwood branch in White Craft Ink, then applied Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it. I used my AquaPainter to watercolor with Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink and Mellow Moss reinkers. I cut it out and mounted it with dimensionals on a square of Whisper White, then layered it on Chocolate Chip. I added some length to the Chocolate Chip layer so I could wrap some Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon around it. I also used a scrap piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock and my Eyelet Border punch along one side. The background is Juntos Designer Paper in a soft Mellow Moss swirl pattern (Juntos is in the Spanish catalog…but YOU can order it, too! One of the designer paper patterns that is on sale this month…buy 3, get the 4th one FREE!) Finally, I layered the Juntos DSP on Chocolate Chip cardstock and added a greeting from Soft Summer in Basic Brown, then punched it with the Scallop Oval Punch. I loved how this turned out and I know my mom will LOVE it! She’s in Florida for a couple weeks on their 50th Anniversary trip, so won’t get it until she comes back.
I’m going to be doing a Punch Class today with my friends about 2 hours away. I love getting together with them. I hope everyone has a great weekend! My upline is having a downline meeting tomorrow, so I’m looking forward to that, too!
