For me Mother's Day is emotional for alot of reasons. In the past I would try to find happiness in the Lord, but I would still get down. For one, my biological mother left my family when I was around 2 years old. I have no biological children on earth, but precious babies waiting on me in Heaven. But recently this has changed.
My husband and I have met and married almost two years ago and I was blessed to become a party of his family, which included his momma. She is a lovely, Godly woman! So for the last two years, I have had wonderful mother's days. Last year I made her the flower in a box and she loved the 3d effects. That made my heart smile, so this year I wanted to create another 3d card. Well that didnt happen, but what I made instead she LOVED!! Below are the instructions and products used.
Cardstock - Basic Black 11 x 4 1/4, 1 1/2 x 5 3/8, 2 1/2 x 2
Cardstock - Very Vanilla 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 1 3/8 x 5 3/8, 2 3/8 x 1 7/8
Stamp - Washi Stamp from Timeless Textures
Framelit Die - Botanical Builder
Basic Black Candy Dots
Momento Tuxedo Black Ink
Tombow Multi Liquid Glue
Clear Embossing Powder
Sentiment Stamp from April Paper Pumpkin Kit (this was the free set SU! included, and I have a giveaway for this kit on my Facebook
once I reach 100 likes)
Mounting Block D
Stamp and Scrub
Fold in half the the Basic Black 11 x 4 1/4 cardstock, which will result in a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card base. Adhere the Very Vanilla 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 cardstock on top of the base using Tombow glue (or your favorite adhesive). Using the Washi stamp, ink up in versa mark and stamp on the Very Vanilla 1 3/8 x 5 3/8 cardstock strip, every 1/2 inch. I did this to resemble a ribbon effect, that SU! used to carry. Adhere this piece to the Basic Black 1 1/2 x 5 3/8 mat.
Using the sentiment from the April Paper Pumpkin kit,stamp on the Very Vanilla Cardstock 2 3/8 x 1 7/8 piece. Adhere this to the 2 1/2 x 2 Basic Black Cardstock. Add dimensionals and adhere to the middle of the stamped Very Vanilla strip.
Using the Botanical Builder framelits die, pick out the flowers as shown above. I die-cutted one set in Basic Black and another in Very Vanilla. Please refer to card picture on how I put the flowers together or you can view my YouTube video
, also. After I adhered the flowers I added some Basic Black Candy Dots to the vanilla pieces and pearl accents to the black. I did add some tiny pearls to the sentiment, but this is not needed.
I am very happy and pleased the way this card came out, as it was meant for a lovely person.
