Marbled Mother's Day Card

Hi Crafty Friends,

Last week I shared two Father's Day cards I created using the Concord & 9th Marbled Turnabout stamp set. Today I have a Mother's Day card using the same stamp set.

For this card I again used Distress Oxide inks to stamp the Turnabout stamp, the colors used are Tattered Rose, Abandoned Coral, Warm Lipstick, Candied Apple.

As I had recently received the Best Parents stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps I decided to take the opportunity to make a Mother's Day card, having two daughters one with children I normally have a few Mother's Day cards I need to make each year.

For this card I used the cute Penny Black Happy Heart Day stamp set, this is a Valentine themed stamp set but I thought it would also work for Mother's Day.

In Australia we refer to mother's as mum rather than mom as they do in the USA .... the stamp set being from the US ... said "Mom" .... I decided to give my stamp a little surgery so I could use it for my cards so it says the correct word for me. I probably could have trimmed a little more to change the o to a u ... but I didn't want to risk ruining the stamp so I am happy they way it is now.

For the inside of the card I used the negative piece of marbled cardstock that was left over from die cutting the panel on the front. I also added a sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamps stamp set.
