Thank you for stopping by! Im so excited to share the project I have made for the Simon Says Stamp Hello Gorgeous release. Please click on this link to see the entire Hello Gorgeous release.
This is the ultimate spring release! A little bit of everything spring. The card I made is for a very special day that arrives with the blooms of spring. Mother's Day! I have been a mother for 27 years now but sadly I lost my own mother when I was just a young girl. Mother's Day is a very special holiday to me. I can honor my sweet mother and the inspiration she was to help me be the mother I am today.
I made this top folding A2 size card using smooth white cardstock. I then die cut a rectangle smaller to leave a bit of a border using a stitched rectangle die. I then pulled out all my cardstock scraps!! I love making cards using my scraps if I can. Laura Bassen has been a great example to use up your left over bits and pieces of cardstock. Thank you Laura!! I die cut out some of my favorite colors from this awesome leaf die from the new release to make a semi-wreath to showcase the absolutely adorable Mom die! I just adore this die!! I die cut it out of silver card stock (a left over piece 😉).
I used a pre-printed sentiment strip also in the new release. I trimmed it out using my paper trimmer. Here is a tip I have learned: use a black marker to color the sides of your trimmed sentiment strip for a more finished look. I used foam adhesive to pop it up for a little dimension. I added some flat backed silver pearls for a bit of shine to my wreath.
