Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!!!
It is time for a new challenge over at
This week's challenge is...
Just for Her
with mother's day just around the corner I wanted to share another card I made following this week's
And here is my take on the sketch...
I started out with a Brown Kraft Cardstock base and used the designer papers from October Afternoon~ Modern Homemaker 8x8 paper pad. I wanted my card to have more of a distressed look so all the edges were inked using my Ink Blending Tool and Gathered Twigs distress ink. For my sentiment, I again used the Gathered twigs distress ink and Paper Smooches~ Sentiment Sampler set....I didn't have the "mom" stamp so I pieced letter from 2 of the other sentiments to stamp that. As you can also see I ran each of the pieces through my sewing machine just for alittle something more :)
Here is a close-up of the flower embellishment...... I started by laying down a layer of Red w/White Washi Tape and then using My Creative Time~ Flower Petal Dies cut out the largest and smallest flowers. For the middle flower I used Bazzill cream cardstock which is also the bases of all my pieces and the sentiment mat.
After the pieces were die cut, I inked the edges using my Ink Blending Tool and more Gathered Twigs distress ink. For the brad I used the 1/8th Inch Hole Punch and a Custom Fastener. To finish my flower off I added some felt die cut leaves and to complete my card I added 2 small Cream Twill Tape flags.
So there you have it....my inspiration for this week's challenge.
I hope you have enjoyed my card and will play along with us!
