My Mum's Mother's Day Card

If you're wondering what sort of card to make for your mum, well I'll give you a sneak peek of the card I made for my mum (sshhh. Don't tell her though). The 'A rose is a rose' set from Stampin' Up! is the perfect stamp set to use for Mother's Day (and other occasions too!). I have used the In Colours of 2009, coordinated them with the Bella Rose Designer Series Paper, and then selected my cardstock and ink colours to match. Here's what I mean:

Stamps: A Rose is a Rose & Occasional Greetings
Inks: Stampin' Up! Classic Rose Red, Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive & Chocolate Chip

Papers: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Red Riding Hood & Bella Rose DSP

Other: Stampin' Dimensionals, Piercing Template, Mat & Tool & Dazzling Diamonds Glitter

Tip: I have used Stampin' Dimensionals (foam pads) to "lift" up selected flowers and leaves.

I used the Mother's Day stamp from the very versatile Occasional Greetings set and have used the 'Thankyou for touching my life' sentiment stamp from the Rose is a Rose set inside the card.

I hope my mum likes it!

Anyway, it's only a short post today. Tonight is craft night - and I have to pack my bag which means selecting what items I must bring with me. We're off to Lyneham tonight!!
