Happy Mother's Day

Another Monday and a new challenge at My Grafico Crafts: Mother's Day. Make a card and/or paper craft project to celebrate Mother's Day. Here is my DT project:
When I received this precious verse, I knew that I had to include some material on this card. This is my first time using burlap as an embellishment. As the clerk was cutting it, she pulled out long threads which, of course, I asked for and hence used in creating the flower along with ribbon and a vintage button. The same ribbon was used to weave through the vintage lace. A butterfly was cut from DP then liquid glass was added to make it shiny and sturdier. The stitch frame was enhanced with a yellow gelly roll pen.The edges of both the sentiment and polka dot DP were distressed with green stamp pad ink.

Here is the inside of the Mother's Day card. The cupcake has some paper piecing on the heart as well as the base. The "frosting" appears shiny with the help of liquid glass. The flower on the bottom right is cut from DT. I added a square to the base of this card so that a note could be written. A punch added the scallops and burlap string was woven through then tied in a bow. You might notice that the edges of the polka dot paper were also punched with a scallop die. The edges of the square and the Mother's Day sentiment were distressed with green ink also.

This picture shows how simple it is to make a pop up card! This DP package has some beautiful florals and coordinates. I just love it!!

DP: K and Company
Burlap: JoAnn Fabrics
Ribbon: Michael's

I know there are many details on this card but I had so much fun being creative!! Isn't that what challenges are for? Thank you for stopping to visit today. I hope that I have inspired you to create something special for a loving lady in your life. Perhaps you will find that burlap adds an interesting dimension to your paper crafts. Maybe you will want to make a pop up card? Splitcoast Stampers has a wonderful tutorial for a much more difficult pop up card but it will give you some inspiration.
