For My Mum

Hello friends,

A card for a special mother to share today. I decided not to use designer paper as background but strips of washi tape and a Spellbinders heart shape die cut. The watering can is from a Paper Sweeties die cut and stamp set “Showering You With Love”. I added a few tiny roses, leaves, gemstones, bow and a sentiment and all is done. I love the simplicity of the card although it still have the shabby chic look.

I would love to enter my card in the following challenges:

The watering can and little roses

PS_ShoweringWith-Love1

The sentiment

PS_ShoweringWith-Love2

The washi tape fishtail banners

PS_ShoweringWith-Love3

A peep at the inside

Project details:

  • Cream cardstock
  • Paper Sweeties die cut and stamp set “Showering You With Love Bundle”
  • Crafter’s Companion sentiment stamp “Mulberry Wood Love You”
  • Spellbinders Shapeabilities die “Lace Hearts” and “Classic Hearts”
  • Washi tape
  • Gemstones
  • Roses
  • Olba punch for leaves
  • Wax cord for bow
  • Tim Holtz distress ink “Spun Sugar” and “Victorian Velvet” for stamping

Thanks for visiting today – I appreciate it so much. Have a wonderful day and happy crafting.

Regards,

Amelia

    Hi, Amelia!!! Hou van die effense CAS gevoel wat die wit agtergrond aan jou kaartjie gee, maar dis nog steeds shabby chic ook!!!! Jou washi strips is pragtig en daai gieter is net te oulik so versier met die pragtige rosies!!! Baie, baie mooi en beslis gepas vir ‘n spesiale Ma!!!!
    Groete en geniet die Moedersdag Sondag!!!!
