Happy Mother's Day Card


Just want to say 'Happy Mother's Day to you all....thanks for taking time to stop by here. The instructions are a little late and I apologize for that...but here they are: Cut 'vanilla' card-stock to measure 10 1/2" by 5 1/2". Fold in half to make the card base. Cut a piece of DSP (I used Baha Breeze Patterns by Stampin Up) 5 1/4" by 5 1/4". Use a punch to round the corners on both the card base and the paper piece you just cut. Adhere the paper to the front of the card. This is the first layer. Next I cut a piece of 'vanilla' 5" by 5" and also one 4" by 4". These two pieces are both punched around the corner and edges with the Martha Stewart 'Daisy Fan' punches. Next I used a square die and cut the center out of each one.....to leave a 'window' (2 1/2" by 2 1/2"). Sponge edges with 'Baja Breeze' SU ink. These layers are both attached with pop-up dots. The next layer is a Spellbinders Die 'Pendant Tulips'. The center is cut out of this as well and the edges again sponged. I also sponged a little around the tulips. This is attached with pop-up dots. At this point you have 5 layers. The picture does not really show you the layers....but they are there. The center is a 2" square, another die from the Spellbinder's set and a 1 1/2" square. I sponged the edges of the top two layers and stamped 'MOM' before I attached but used the same layering. The pearls are Stampin Up and attached at various places around the card.


Any questions please ask!
