Thoughts & Prayers Mother's Day Card

A second attempt at finding a nice Mother's Day card that I like.  Now I do like this one but it's not going to stop me from making more.  This one is pretty but I think I can do better!  This one was very easy too.

I used the "Vintage Wallpaper" embossing folder.  I used the brayer and inked up the front flap on the inside.  Then I put my card stock inside and rolled it through the Big Shot like you would normally do.  I did use a quarter sheet of card stock and I cut it down 1/8" around when I was done.  

Next I took a piece of Whisper White card stock cut 3-7/8" x 2-7/8" and colored the image from "Thoughts & Prayers" and stamped it on the card stock.  

The words came from the "Delightful Dozen set".  I had stamped them directly on the card stock but I got it crooked and I mean CROOKED!!!  So I stamped it on a piece of scrap card stock and punched it out.  Then I sponged the edges before I set it on top of the crooked words using Dimensionals.  You can kind of see the words under it if you are looking for them but it's not noticeable.  I had to really look for them.  SO they are covered well and the card is now pretty.  And I think that mistake was meant to be because I do like the words raised on on the card.

And that is it.  Very simple and fairly quick too!  Now to go wash off the folder and brayer and dry them!  I don't like cleaning up after stamping!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
