With Love on Mother's Day

Good evening friends, followers and family, today I have a Mother's Day card made with papermilldirect's latest offer card Coniston blue.  This is a gorgeous blue and you can get a small A4 box for just £4.40, that's a saving of 50% on the regular price, you can find it here in Special Offers Section

The design team have been making Mother's Day cards this week and you can see them on the papermilldirect blog.  My card is a simple make with stamping, heat embossing and a few paper embellishments.

The solid flower was stamped in the bottom left hand corner and the words stamped using embossing ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  The other two flowers were stamped using embossing ink and left to dry.  The card was embellished with a die cut butterfly and some thin pieces of scrap card which were wound round to make the flower centers.  The stamped panel was layered onto white card and then fastened to a white linen card blank using 3D sticky tape. 

Materials used:

  • Papermilldirect Coniston blue and white linen cardstock
  • Hero Arts Sweet Threads collection and Papermania Urban Stamps Vintage Notes Sentiments
  • Memory Box butterfly die
  • white embossing powder and Versamark embossing ink
  • 3D sticky tape
Thank you for calling in, and for any comments left.
