Hello there. Spring has sprung here and with Mother’s Day fast approaching, I am sharing a floral Mother’s Day card I made for my MIL. Nothing says spring more than flowers, does it? Ok, maybe summer… 😂 Anyway, here’s my card.
Next stamped the flowers and and banner with Intense Black ink on a scrap of Neenah cardstock. Stamped ‘Mother’s Day’ on the banner. Coloured the images with Copics then fussy cut them out. Stamped ‘happy’ directly on the panel in black. Arranged and adhered the blooms and banner, then mounted the panel with foam adhesive to an A2 Pink Pirouette piece. Attached the pink piece to a white top folding card base and added clear shimmer to the flowers and clear raindrops to finish.
Hi there. Today’s card will look familiar. In my last post, I shared a Christmas card created with the spotlight technique. Well, as I was cleaning up my desk, I came across the negative coloured die-cut piece. What a shame to have that go to waste and thrown into recycling. Instead, I stamped another piece (super easy since the elves stamps were untouched in the MISTI) and created today’s card using the reverse spotlight technique.
To reverse spotlight, I simply shaded the newly stamped piece (pictured right above) with black and grey Polychromous pencils. Adhered it behind the diecut square window piece and voila.
I stamped the sentiment in Versafine black ink and heat embossed it with clear glitter embossing powder. For dimension and interest, I die cut a rectangle to create a frame. I then mounted the frame onto a white card base with foam adhesives. Inlaid the die cut rectangle, added a few clear sequins and called it done. And here they are.
