Rubbernecker Mother's Day Hop


My Mother has passed away, so I can't send her a Mother's Day card, but I can and will certainly be thinking of her on Mother's Day. This sentiment was perfect for my card. In case you can't read it, it says, "If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk in my garden forever."

I stamped the roses image onto shimmery white card stock, added a little color with markers and cut the image out. Using a craft knife, I cut around a few of the petals. I then attached it to the Webster's Pages designer paper using foam squares to pop up those petals I had cut around. I also used a few small glue dots to hold down the image around that so the dimension would really show up. I stamped the sentiment onto the dp using Aged Mahogany distress ink and clear embossed. I then mounted all that onto a Rose Red card front. I colored a length of seam binding and some white lace with Copic markers and alcohol and added that to the corner of the card. You have to have lace and ribbon on a Mother's Day card, right?

Ellen couldn't have said it any better about mothers, Karen. I'm sure your mother will forever be in your heart, and I'm also sure she is smiling down upon this beautiful creation you made. I love your exquisite ribbon treatment.

This is lovely Karen - with the pretty ribbon and layered flowers - the sentiment looks great stamped directly on the DP. My mother has passed as well (10 years ago) but there is always a close aunt, cousin or new-mother niece to send a Mother's Day card to!
