Happy Mother's Day

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing with you my card that I have created following the latest sketch from Cardabilities.

When I saw this sketch I had many ideas. I had a lovely Spellbinders frame that I have made and tried working with it, but it was too small. I was not having any luck so I decided to walk away from it and try again another time. Next day...BINGO! things came together. My card is more vintage this time. I stayed with my 6x6 size and found this easier to work with.

I used a combination of black, crumb cake (kraft), pink and papers from Prima Tea Thyme. I inked the edges of my background papers then distressed them using the Distrezz It All. To create my banner, I used some patterned paper backed with some crumb cake. I inked the edges then added some lace to the sides.  I used some foam tape to add dimension to this as well. The centre is a Spellbinders tag die cut using the crumb cake. I stamped my sentiment then cut it out using an ovals die. Again I used foam tape to add dimension to each layer. Some flowers and a bow complete my card.


Paper: Prima Tea Thyme 6" paper stack, black and pink cardstock, Stampin' Up! crumb cake

Stamp: JustRite Stampers Vintage Rose Medallions

Ink: Memento tuxedo black, walnut stain distress ink

Other: Spellbinders fancy tags two and classic ovals small, Prima flowers, Hooked on Craft leaves, Hug Snug seam binding lyric rose, lace, Zutter Distrezz It All, Becca's peg bow maker.

I hope that you'll join in and create a card using this sketch. Remember to link back to Cardabilities when posting your completed card. Have fun and happy crafting!

Thanks for stopping by!
