Happy Mother's Day

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing a card I created using Concord & 9th's Flower Turnabout stamp set. I so love this stamp set. This time around I stamped the flowers using my Distress Oxide ink pads.

I wanted to use the Inlaid Diecut technique on this card, here is how I created it.
  • Stamp the background using the Flower Turnabout, Distress Oxide inks and MISTI
  • Use the Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Rectangles die to create a rectangle panel
  • Die Cut the word "Happy" directly into the flower background. (make sure you save all the little pieces that come from the centre of the die cut.
  • Die cut 4 to 5 additional "Happy" words and adhere together to form a stack. 
  • Adhere the floral "Happy" word to the top of the stack
  • Adhere the floral background to a piece of red card which has been die cut using the Dotted Scallop Rectangles.
  • Adhere the stacked "Happy" word into the negative space on the card
  • Adhere the little pieces you saved into the negative space.

Once I had finished my card all I had to do was decided what type of occasion I would make it for .... birthday or Mother's Day. As you can see in the end I opted for Mother's Day as I need to get a few made to give my kids for Christmas.

For the inside I added a few more flowers from the stamp set and added one of the sentiments. Before I added the sentiment I cut off the "and flowers" from the end of the sentiment as it didn't really suit for who will be receiving this card.

Wow - this is gorgeous. I love the colours you chose for your flowers. I haven't seen much stamping done with the Distress Oxide inks (just backgrounds) so I really liked seeing this.
