Happy Mother's Day to all mums out there. Sadly, I'm unable to have little ones, so I don't get all the flowers, cards and chocs. I thought I might get something from the cat (dropped a hint or two) but no! - nothing, zilch, zero. Oh well :0)
Tally-ho! Onto the Mother's Day card I made for Simon's mum.
I was looking through my stash and I came across some Cosmo Cricket stuff. It was a huge scrapbook and card making kit that QVC did years ago. I bought one and loved it so much, I asked Simon to get me another for Christmas. As usual with Cosmo Cricket the colours are lovely, soft and muted.
What you need...
Card blank: ivory scalloped - Cosmo Cricket
Papers: various co-ordinating patterns - Cosmo Cricket
Die cut: sentiment - Cosmo Cricket
Dies: Framelits Ovals (657563); Bigz Flower Layers #9 (657114) - Sizzix
Stickers: Infuse Sugar Alphabet - Basic Grey
Stickpins: ivory heart, teardrop
Lace: ivory cotton
Flat-backed pearls: ivory small
What you do...
Die cut the largest oval in blue distressed paper and attach to the left side of the blank, overlapping the edge slightly, trim any excess.
Die cut each flower in red floral paper, the two largest in ivory patterned paper and the smallest in blue distressed paper. Hand cut three leaves from dusky pink distressed paper. Scrunch everything up, then layer the flowers and attach a gem brad to the centre of each.
Arrange the flowers and leaves on the oval. Tie a bow in a length of lace and fix above the flowers, push two stickpins through the knot. Adhere the sentiment die cut to the right of the flowers, with 'mum' spelt out in alphabet stickers underneath. Embellish the sentiment with pearls.
There you have it. I'll post back later with the card I did for my mum and my nan.
Toodle-pip for now :) xxxx
