Mother's Day Card

We hope everyone had a very nice weekend.  Instead of going out, everyone came here yesterday.  It was so much easier for me to stay home than to drag this boot around.  Everyone brought a bunch of goodies and we had a great time.  On Saturday, I made it back to my craft room for the first time since things were moved back, and I made this card for my daughters.  I originally was going to make it for Valentine's Day in red but ran out of time, so I thought I would change up the color and make it for Mother's Day.  This design could be used for so many occasions.


I made a gateway card measuring 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scoring at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8" in Whisper White.  I used SU's Sugarplum CS for my sides measuring 1 7/8" x 5 1/4" and the inside panel which measures 4" x 5 1/4" which I then embossed.  I used my Sweet & Sassy Framelits, embossed them as well,  and adhered them together to form my closure using dimensionals on one side of the heart to my base card.


I used my $1 stamp from Michael's for my sentiment.  Before I hurt my ankle, I had found this adorable pansy stamp online and was so happy when it came in the mail the other day.


My old one was wearing out and I love how this stamped out!!  I go back to the ankle specialist on Wed. for more x-rays, so I hope he will give me something lighter to wear.  It is suppose to warm up this week so I can hardly wait.  I hope everyone has a good week!

Thanks for stopping by,

Nancy

  1. Pretty and perfect for Mother's Day! I haven't made a gate fold in forever. The pansy stamp is perfect for you. I've never worn out a stamp and didn't know that could happen. You must have used it a LOT! I'm glad you had a nice Mother's Day, even with the boot. I'm sure it must be tiring.
