Perennial Postage, Forever Love, Around the Bend, Mother's Day Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a Mother's Day card to share with you. It's nice to get a jump on needed cards, isn't it? I like to try to plan ahead when I can and sometimes it actually works out! Please read on to see how I made today's card. 

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. After making my card I think Very Vanilla would have been a better choice. The card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 3" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Forever Love" 12" x 12" package. I die cut the bottom area of that piece using the curved die from the "Around the Bend" bundle. 

Using the same die set I cut the scalloped piece using gold foil card stock. I taped the DSP to the gold piece.

Next I cut a 3" x 4-1/4" piece of DSP from the same "Forever Love" package. I taped the piece to the bottom of the card base and then the foil layered piece was taped to the upper part of the card base.

The words are from the "Perennial Postage" set and were stamped using black Memento ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I die cut them using the 4th circle in the "Stylish Shapes" set and I used the 3rd circle from that set on a piece of gold foil card stock. I taped the two circles together and set it in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals.  And the card was finished.

This was a fun card to make. It was quick and easy and has an elegant look to it. Though I do recommend you use Very Vanilla card stock instead of Basic White. The white is just too bright and looks out of place. But the mom that receives it will not care.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's Mother's Day card,
