I am the mom to two small children and I am married to an awesome guy that is very supportive of my hobbies! I have a career that I really enjoy although it does help me to appreciate my free time even more!!!!
Today is a mother's day card for my big sis. I was inspired by a card that I saw in one of the magazines and then I found the gem broach brads at Joanns. They are from the House of Three, Pink Paislee and it's all one piece so it was easy to work with.
The card was cut from Birthday Bash at 6 1/4", using the card/tag function of the porcupine and Core'dinations paper. The top layer was cut using the pink glittered sheet from the new DCWV Royal Garden solid coordinates 4 1/2 x 6 1/2" stack. I inked the edges of the pink layer.
Once I got started I got inspiration from the old flapper girls, which my sister and I were both for Halloween when we were growing up. I used black glitter ribbon from Recollections and then some small solid colored feathers and the broach to give it the look of a flapper's headband.
I printed the sentiment on the front and then inked the paper and corner punched with a Fiskar's corner punch. On the inside, I cut the layer again but, at 2 1/2" and then stamped a sentiment on it, punched out slots at each end and then ran a scrap piece of that pink glitter paper through it and trimmed the edges. I love how it turned out and I hope she does as well.
