Flower Themed Mother's Day Card

To start off for the background I used a white piece of cardstock the standard A2 size 4 and 1/4 by 5 and 1/2.  I used Tempting Turquiose and Green Galore Stampin' Up inks.  I took the ink pads directly to the paper and made sweeping motions.  After the whole base was covered with ink I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist in Blue Skies.

To create the flowers I used the Stampin' Up embossed folder Manhatten Flower.  I used an ink blending tool to add the Stampin' Up inks Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose.  Once the flowers were colored I cut them out.  Before attaching them to the back layer I sprayed them with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist.

For the sentiment I cut out a vanilla colored layer with my Nestabilities.  The ink colores are Close to Cocoa, Regal Rose, and Tempting Turquoise.  I used 3 sets from SP & Company's Mix N Match collection: Occasions, Friends, & Holidays.  The bling was just from the $1 section of Michael's.

 The stitching lines on the vanilla piece is from the Gelly Roll pen Green Star.  The stitching lines around the rest of the card are from the Gelly Roll pen Pink Star.

In person this has lots of fun sparkle and shine.  I've given up on ever getting the perfect photo of that sort of thing.

I'm really pleased with the way this came out.  I don't think it looks like anything I've ever done before and it was lots of fun.  I really love this embossing folder and I have been wanting to do something special with it.

Thanks for visiting!
