Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge

I was able to play along in the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge this week. Here is the sketch:



I needed to make another Mother's Day card so that is what I made with this weeks sketch.

And here it is:


I decided to go with a 6x6 card which I rarely use but I couldn't get what I wanted on an A2 card which is what I the size I use most.


I used an aqua blue mat and inked it with Vintage Photo distress ink. Next layer was made with a round 6" Fiskars border punch which I have had forever and this was my first time using it. Yeah! I cut a smaller circle in a lighter pink and inked it with Vintage Photo. I had the Papertrey Ink die cut border in white cardstock leftover from a previous project and decided to use it.

I stamped my sentiment on white cardstock in Vintage Photo distress ink using Stephanie Bernards Stamps of Life and the crown is a Technique Tuesday stamp. I added pearls to the crown. I backed it on dark pink cardstock and inked the edges with Vintage Photo. The crochet flower is a purchase I made from an Etsy shop called Annie Designs. She has some beautiful crochet flowers in her shop. This card is for my MIL who loves to crochet so I thought she would like the crochet flower. I added some pearls to the middle of the flower and the leaves were made from a sizzix die that I embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder from Cuttlebug.
Here is the inside:


I used Hero Arts stamps and Vintage Photo distress ink. I stamped all three stamps at once by lining the stamps up the way I wanted on the card and then layed an acrylic block large enough to fit all the stamps on top and pressed. Then all I had to do was ink it and stamp once.
And that is my card.
Hope you enjoyed it and maybe learned something new.

  2. Your card is just beautiful and I love you added the crown. What Mom wouldn't feel special with that. I really like the Fiskars punch you used, too.
