Today is Mother’s Day in New Zealand. Happy Mother’s Day to all the ladies that play a ‘mothering’ role to children. This past year I’ve become a ‘Great Aunt’ and am looking forward to playing a part in his life – he’s so cute and I had plenty of cuddles with him last weekend while they were over from Australia.
In preparation for Mother’s Day I taught these cards at last months card class – both use the lovely Falling in Love Designer Series Paper. The first card is for my Mum and the second one for Phil’s Mum.
Even though I’m not a pink girl I love the colour combo of this card – Blushing Bride, Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla. The Lace Doilies from the Occasions Catalogue are great – one side is white and the other is vanilla. This card is another take on a ‘Z’ fold card.
The stamp sets used for this card are Crazy about You for the sentiment and Touches of Texture for the inside – both stamped in Sahara Sand. The sentiment is stamped onto a piece of Very Vanilla then cut out with one of the shapes from the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits. I then cut the same shape again from a piece of Blushing Bride which I then cut in half and adhered top and bottom. This was then adhered with a dimensional.
The second card is another variation on a ‘Z’ fold which I CASED from Patty Bennett a US demonstrator.
I’ve used the same DSP as the first card but gone with the blue tones of Soft Sky.
I’ve used the same stamp sets but just a different image for the inside. The stem and outline were stamped in Memento Black and the overlay is Soft Sky. This is a quick card to make but looks very effective. The squares that the doilies are adhered to are cut with the Layering Square Framelits.
Thank you Mum for being such an amazing role model. You have taught us how to love unconditional, care and respect others. These qualities are now being passed onto the next generation. Thank you for being my Mum xx.
