Happy Mother's Day Card

Good morning! With Mother's Day quickly approaching I decided to create a card using this weeks color challenge at Sunday Stamps. The colors are So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, and Not Quite Navy all by Stampin' Up!. When creating this Happy Mother's Day Card, I wanted to use the Full Heart Punch because it is very neglected. Using Not Quite Navy ink, I stamped the flower from the Betsy's Blossoms stamp set and then used the heart punch to create my focal image. Of course, it wouldn't be complete without a butterfly, punched using the Bitty Butterfly punch. I added a little bling for some sparkle and did some stitching for detail and that's the story behind this Happy Mother's Day Card. Thanks for stopping by!

Stampin' Up! Supplies:
  • Paper: Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, and Wild Wasabi card stock and So Saffron dsp from the Subtles DSP patterns paper stack.
  • Stamps: Betsy's Blossoms clear mount stamp set and Itty Bitty Wishes wood mount stamp set.
  • Inks: Classic stampin' pads in Not Quite Navy and Wild Wasabi.
  • Other Stuff: Scallop Trim Border punch, Full Heart punch, Bitty Butterfly punch, Itty Bitty Shapes punch, Big Shot, Fancy Fan embossing folder, rhinestone basic jewels, and stampin' dimensionals.

My card is entered into the following challenges:
  1. Sunday Stamps: Color
  2. Flutter By Wednesday's: Anything Goes using a Butterfly or Fairy
