It May Work After All!!

I was making this card for Mother's Day and when I got the layout figured out I realized there wasn't any room to add "Happy Mother's Day." I guess this card would fall under the category of "various occasions." It would work for a Birthday, Thank You, Thinking of You, Get Well and even Mother's Day without it actually saying. The sentiment could be added on the inside.

This was a fun card to make too. I used punches for the smaller squares so making those were a quick thing to do!! Gotta LOVE that!!!! I used the Stampin' Up! "Blooming with LOVE" set to make this card. I colored the images in using markers and a blender pen. I sponged the edges and added the layers. I was even able to use a piece of retired decorative paper. And I just LOVE it when I can use some of that paper I had been hoarding! Notice I used the word "had" in that sentence?? I am actually using those papers now!!! And without fear!!! LOL I also added a few clear dew drops to the card. It just needed a little something more and those fit the bill. I do have problems eying them on the sides when I have 3 in a row. Once I add a little bit of Crystal Effects to affix them I can never get them straight. But once I realize they are stuck and I can't do a thing about it I remember that after all, it IS a handmade card!!! And being reminded of that helps me accept the mistakes on it better!!! LOL

I do need a few more Mother's Day cards so stay tuned if you haven't found one you like yet!!! There will be a few more plus some other fun projects coming up!!!

Have a wonderful day and thank you for visiting,

I just got this set, so thanks for the inspiration. Whenever I get stuck as to where to put my sentiment, I stamp it on vellum and use a ribbon slide or a couple of brads to attach it; that might work for you on this card......I visit your blog every day and enjoy it tremendously; keep 'em comin'!
