Mothers Day

So now I have got the inspiration and the crafting bug back I went on to make another Mothers Day card, after a small trip to hobbycraft for some extra inspiration and bits. Here is what I came up with.

After been inspired by my previous heat embossing card I gave it another go. First I embossed two heart shaped doilies, one in a glitter red embossing powder and the other with a pink distressing powder.

Next from a piece of black cardstock, cut a scalloped edged oval and then print on it the image taken from Woodland Folk clear stamp. Heat emboss the image with silver embossing powder.

Punch the edeges of the card blank with the heart edging. Arrange the elements on the card blank and on top of the pink patterned paperstock. Add the finishing touches of red gems, Mum and with Love stamped in black ink and then make the flowers using felt red and pink flower shapes and pink glittered brads.

Final product which I am quite proud of
