Fabulous Florets Mother Card

I wanted to get this posted pretty quickly. Mother's Day is over and this was the card I had made for my mom for that occasion. I did realize though by the saying it did not have to be categorized as a Mother's Day card only. It could be used for birthday or any other time for your mom.
I had a lot of fun with this card. I was very pleased with the end result too. I ended up using my watercolor crayons and blender pens for most of the flowers. The solid image flowers are stamped with classic ink. On the bashful blue flower I used a night of navy stampin' write marker to accent the petals. To be quite honest, I love this stamp set. It is very versatile. Many demonstrators are having a lot of fun using it. If you are interested in purchasing it the number is (123025 for wood) and (123027 for the clear mounted) set.

I wanted you to be able to see a close up of the flowers. I cut out everyone of the flowers by hand. It took some time to do, but it was not that long really. Like I said, I had a lot of fun with this card. Putting the pearls in the middle of the flowers added a lot too.


Items used to create this card. Stampin' Up! only.

Cardstock: naturals white

Ink: night of navy, bashful blue, and old olive

Stamp set: well scripted (retired)

Tools: watercolor wonder crayons and paper snips
Embellishments: basic pearl jewels

I thank you for stopping by my blog. It would be nice if you would take the time to leave a comment. I understand if you don't. I don't always leave comments either when I visit other blogs.


Now go-n-stamp!!
