Mother's Day

It is Mother's Day tomorrow and since my Mom reads my blog, this is my social distancing way for sending a card and flowers this year. Mom, I am hono(u)red to call you my Mom. When times change again, you will get this card with the teddy and her pretty orange and yellow tulips.


A little bit of detail about the card. This is another card that I made by combining the shape of the digi with an oval and merging the shapes to cut the digi out with the shape. The digi is Bella sending you smiles by Conie Fong. I printed her out onto Canson C' a Grain Drawing paper and colored her with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I then returned her to the Silhouette to complete the cut. I cut the shape a second time out of white cardstock and ran a black marker along both edges before gluing them together.

The card is a top-folding cardbase. I added the piece of patterned paper from my stash to the right hand side and then cut a piece of white cardstock to 4.25x5.5 inches and trimmed the right hand side with a Spellbinders die. I did some partial embossing along the bottom and then added a strip of glitter washi tape where the embossing ends before adhering the white piece to the card. 



Using a Hero Arts die, I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink and then glued Bella to the card to complete my project.
