Happy Mother's Day

Hello everyone! I hope you are well. I have a Mother’s Day card to share with you. In Australia, we celebrate it on the second Sunday of May. Some activities that occur on Mother’s Day include organised walks or runs to raise money for causes such as breast cancer research and breakfasts, brunches, lunches, afternoon teas or dinners at restaurants, cafes, or at home. Of course chocolates, flowers and special gifts are mandatory! I used pink in my card to recognise breast cancer, to recognise the survivors and those who are battling it. It is something that touches everyone in some way.

Here I used Magnolia Rose leaf die and gently shaped the leaves. I also used Memory Box Elegant Scrollwork, Green Tara rose and Kaisercraft mini paper paper bloom. I also like to machine stitch with my sewing machine which you can see here as well.

My main focal point is a stamp by JustRite called Vintage Rose Medallions. I stamped it onto Stampin’Up! watercolour paper and used my Stampin’ Write Markers from the Subtles Collection and a Stampin’ Up! blender pen to colour the image in. The sentiment is layered using some foam tape which is from the same stamp set. I also used Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags and accents and a doily to complete it.

  4. Cathy, your Mother's Day card is so sweet and beautiful. I love your JustRite image and your color choices. Would you please share what you used for the mauve color long banner die you used behind your doily? Is it from Spellbinders? BTW, my husband and I just returned from a three week vacation in Australia and New Zealand. Loved every minute of it. On your blog, is that a picture of you in the botanical gardens in Sydney? We spent a day there walking around. Absolutely beautiful. We loved Sydney!
