Mother Love!

How appropriate to have this weeks theme for the Design Team to be All About Mom. It has taken this challenge for me to make my first Mother's Day card since I lost my mom over 6 years ago. I figured it was about time to move past the wall I had put up.

I took the design for this card from the March 2012 issue of Cardmaker magazine. I started with an A2 card base of pink. The white layer is 4" x 5.25" with a piece of CTMH  designer paper - 3.75" x 1" and green cardstock  3.75" x 4" layered on top. I put black stitching lines around the edges and covered the joint of the 2 papers with white ribbon.

The white shape that I stamped on is from CTMH Art Philosophy cut at 3". The stamps are also from CTMH. The edges where inked in pink.
The 2 flowers are from Art Philosophy and are cut at 1", 1.25" and 1.5" I inked the edges of the rolled flowers and held together with hot glue. Next time I would cut a few more of the rolled ones at a larger size, but I really like how the small ones came out and can see I will be using these more often for fillers. They go together very easily. I arranged the flowers over the stamped flowers - which I colored the centers and the leaves and left the rest uncolored. The sentiment is a CTMH stamp. I added a white bow in the corner and stamped a couple of the flowers on the inside.

I know my  mother loved everything I ever made for her and she would have love this one too!

Happy Mother's Day, Mom  xoxo
