Happy Mother’s Day

Wow, it’s Mother’s Day again,  the time is flying so quickly.  Time for another card for my Mum 🙂

Mother's Day

Inks:  Memento Black and Summer Sky
Cardstock:  White, Blue
Stamps: Flourishes Bloomin’ Aussie Florals
Spellbinders: Radiant Rectangles, Labels Twenty
Other: Double-sided tape, Dimensionals, White Opal and Royal Blue Liquid Pearls, Glue

For the cardbase, I cut a 6 1/4″ x 8 1/2 ” piece of white cardstock, scored it at 4 1/4″, folded in half and placed and cut it out using the largest Radiant Rectangle die.  I positioned the fold just inside the die so that the fold would not be cut.  Using the same die, I cut and embossed a piece of blue cardstock, and adhered it to the cardbase using double-sided tape.

I then cut and embossed another pice of white cardstock, using the second largest Radiant Rectangle die.  This was adhered to the blue mat on the cardbase, using double-sided tape in the centre, and glue on the filigreed sections.

Using the third largest die, I cut and embossed a piece of blue cardstock, and adhered it to the centre of the white mat.

I cut and embossed a piece of white cardstock using the fourth die, and using the die as a mask, sponged the oval with Memento Summer Sky.  I adhered this to the blue mat with dimensionals.

I cut and embossed another piece of white cardstock using the fifth die, and adhered this to the sponged mat with dimensionals.

Using the second smallest die from Labels Twenty, I cut and embossed another piece of white cardstock, and using the die as a mask, sponged the oval with Memento Summer Sky.   I stamped the sentiment from Flourishes Bloomin Aussie Florals, and adhered this with dimensionals.

Mother's Day

Once put together, I decorated with Liquid Pearls to finish it off.

I have to say Radiant Rectangles has become my favourite set, due to its versatility, and that it can be used easily with so many other dies.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Happy Mother’s Day Mum, I hope you have a great day.

Bye for now,

Penny
