Today I wanted to show you a Mother's Day card!
I decided to try something a little different with this card. I had this idea to use the Blossom and Pansy Punches to create a bit of a 3D flower- and I wanted to use it to make the letter 'O' in the word MOM, but I didn't have any alphabet dies large enough for it to work. So, I made my own 'M's!
I used the Banner Thinlit dies to create the letters! I used the large one to cut out the main shape, and then the smallest one to complete the M shape. I then did it again with the next size down to create the smaller M. They worked out to be just the right size for the card.
Now for the flower, I punched the larger Blossom punch (which is on the retired product list!) and snipped each petal to give the flowers more depth. I inked up the edges of the punched flowers with some ink and then sprayed them with a water filled Stampin' Spritzer. Then I took a bone folder and gave some of the petals some shape. There were 2 Blossom punch flowers and 2 Pansy punch flowers to make the flower. I let them dry and put them all together with some glue dots, then added the Something Borrowed Embellishments.
The sentiment is from the Sheltering Tree stamp set and I stamped it on a strip of Whisper White, that fit perfectly in the smallest Banner Thinlits die- I only put one side of the strip in the die to cut just the end of it.
The ribbon you see is from the Artisan Embellishment kit, which is not orderable right now 🙁
Here are the supplies I used on this card:
