I'm So Thankful for You!

Good morning! Roxanne here today to show you a colorful project that I created for a Mother's Day card. I'll be making a few more for those special women in my life.

I love using bright colored images with black. It really makes your bright images pop off the page or card.

I chose a simple white base for my card. I always use a folded 4.25x5.5 card. It fits perfectly into an A2 envelope. You can get fun colored envelopes if you'd like, too! Adds a fun touch to someone's mailbox :)

I used a 4x5.25 piece of shimmering cardstock (Crafter's Companion, Silver Starlight) and a dotted stencil (Heidi Swapp) with some embossing paste (Dreamweaver Stencils, Embossing Paste). This was my first time using it and I'm definitely using this more often! It was really quite easy and fun, just took a little time to dry. After it was dry, I rubbed on some Versamagic ink in Thatched Straw just in one section. I love the look of this in person!

For the focal point, I used the Lawn Fawn Tag You're It dies to cut out the tag and hole. For the tag, I used Memento Luxe in Wedding Dress with various images from the Lawn Fawn Flutter By. I just am loving the chalkboard look lately. The hole for the tag was cut out on the yellow striped paper from the Lawn Fawn 6x6 Let's Polka Petite Paper Pack. Little touches make an impact I think.

The butterfly, rose, and leaves were stamped onto white cardstock with Memento in Tuxedo Black. I then colored them in with my Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils. I used the paper stumps and blending solution to blend my coloring. I cut them out leaving a slight white border. Using foam adhesive, I glued them to the tag I created. I love the punch of color!! The cord at the top of the tag is a little piece of cord from Lawn Fawn's Lawn Trimmings, Pink Lemonade. It matched the pink in the rose I colored.

The sentiment blocks were stamped on white cardstock with Memento in Tuxedo Black and I simply cut around them in a rectangle shape. These are from the Lawn Fawn Happy Feast set.

I used foam adhesive to glue down the tag and sentiment blocks to the embossed piece. There you go!  A beautiful Mother's Day card. I hope you're inspired to create some beautiful, and simple, cards for those special women in your life for Mother's Day :)
