Mother's Day Card 1


Here is the first Mother's Day card I made for this year. I used a pagemaps sketch and some word art from Suddenly Artistic.

Here is a trick for the trim that I used on the flowers. It is a double sided ruffle - meaning that the way it starts out is about an inch and a half wide with the ruffle on both sides with some stitching down the middle. I found it to be too wide for what I wanted here, (and I wanted to make it last a little longer) so I used my sewing machine to sew another line of stitching parallel to the first. Then I was able to cut between the two lines of stitching and get two strips of half ruffle.

This is also for the Really Reasonable Ribbon - 2 laces or trims challenge. I used the pink trim to make the flowers, and the green ric rac for the stems. And it is for the Creative Card Crew - for mom challenge and the dare to be sassy handmade flowers challenge. and the papertake weekly anything goes challenge. And also for the cupcake craft - begins with C challenge - I used a cluster of flowers. And for the Flourishes release week challenge to make a message to mom the focal point. I'm not sure it ended up totally the focal point, but I used this word art because I love the message - It says thanks mom, but in between it has lots of items that a child is thankful to a mom for. Also for the Just Magnolia, Anything goes with option of stitching. (My stitching is real)
Supplies: Webster's Pages Trendsetter papers and trims, Bazzill Cardstock, Clearsnap Cat Eye Charcoal Chalk ink, fabritac
