Mom, You Are Special

Mother’s Day is getting closer. I am missing my mom more and more. She lives in a different country but I am so thankful for the technology, we can always Skype with her. I always hope one day we can celebrate this special day with her.

In this special week, I am working on cards for special moms I know 🙂 Today I would love to share with one of the cards I have been making:

I cut 4.25″ x 11″ Kraft Cardstock and scored in the middle to make the card base.

First, I heat embossed the flowers from Flowers For Mom stamp set. Before stamping the flower using VersaMark watermark ink pad, I rubbed the card with anti-static power all over the card so the embossing powder won’t stick everywhere, then stamped the flowers, added the Ranger Super Fine White Embossing Powder, and heat set it using Craft Heater.

Second step is stamping the sentiment. Using Black Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad, I stamped the sentiment from Flowers For Mom stamp set on the card base.

Next is adding the Chevron Ruby ribbon on the card (retired) using Tombow Mono Liquid Glue. It dries clear and quick.

On a piece of White Daisy Cardstock, I stamped the flowers and leaves from Have A Happy Day stamp set using Canary Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad (flowers) and Pear Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad (leaves). Then using my Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors, I cut them one by one and added them on the card using Tombow glue and 3D foam tape.

And then I stamped the saying from Flowers For Mom stamp set on the piece of White Daisy cardstock with Cotton Candy Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad, then I cut the dove tail using my Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors and added it on top of the ribbon using 3D foam tape. Then I finished the card with some Sparkles Clear Assortment, Sequins Gold Assortments and couple of the pink glitter butterflies from Junebug Puffies (these cute puffies are still at While Supplies Last section, all items in this section is only available until they are all gone).

I was quite nervous but I took the challenge from Virginia’s View Challenge #14 – adding layers and dimensions to the project. Like the result 😀
