Hi, I'm back today with another Mother's Day card to share. I have so many Flourishes stamps that have never seen ink and this one in particular was one of them.
I remember my Mom always had these flowers growing in the garden, so pretty in the blue/purple tones. I wanted to use this new paper pack so I went with a orange/red colour of flower.
I stamped the image using black memento onto some white card stock. I then coloured the image using copics then used spellbinders labels twenty nine to cut it out. I left the die in place then sponged some antique linen around the edges.
The orange/red layer under the image was cut using one of the dies from the MFT blueprints #15 set.
In triming the background paper down to size I made sure to leave some of the wording - like at the bottom of the card - let your beautiful soul shine - just love that.
Finishing touches include stitching, button, twine, glitter and some lace ribbon with blue velvet running through the middle.
