Using the Mother’s Day Challenge over at Late Night Stampers, I’ve combined SSC # 148 from Stamping 411 – http://stamping411.blogspot.com – to come up with a card suitable for Mother’s Day.
Of course, how can you go past Stampin’ Up!s® “5th Avenue” stamp set for mother’s day, but then that is me!
My Card –
Stamp Set – 5th Avenue
Ink – Melon Mambo* Pink Pirouette
Cardstock – Whisper White, Melon Mambo
Embossing Folders – Perfect Polka Dots*
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Grosgrain Ribbon – Pretty in Pink
* Autumn-Winter Mini-Catalogue 2010
I’ve kept the cut out flower from “5th Avenue” very plain, as I didn’t want to take the whole effect away from the background.
For the greeting, I typed “For You” on the pc, printed & then attached using a very thin piece of Whisper White cardstock.
TIP – Cardstock cut into very narrow strips make for a great thread. Colour co-ordinate and use it for your buttons, labels, etc
Until next time, Enjoy!
