MOTHERS DAY CARD #1

This is the first of two cards that I will be making for Mothers Day.


In my very first post, I showed the shadow box that I made for my mom...and this is the card that will go with it.  I will be entering this card in the Thankful Thursday Challenge over at dianamlarson.blogspot.com in celebration of Mothers Day.

 
                                                                       5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

For this card I used the following cartridges and measurements.  Kate's ABCs-flower pot (pg 67), cut at 6 inches.  Flower Shoppe-daisy (pg 18), cut at 1 1/2 inches and 2 inches, leaf #5, cut at 1 1/2 inches and 2 inches.  Plantin SchoolBook-Mom, cut at 1 inch.

When I made the flower pot image, I removed the flowers that were on the cut and replaced them with the daisies...and used pop dots to give it some dimension.  I also placed glue dots along the outer edges of the pot and doubled the pop dots down the center to give it a rounded look (as if it were coming out of the card).

For the inking that I had to do, I used the following colors.  For the daisies, dandelion and for the pot...to give the affect of weathering terra cotta, desert sand, potters clay and rich cocoa.  I also used paprika stickles in the flower centers.

Thanks for taking the time to look...hope you like it.  Kathie

  2. This is so sweet. I love that you are making huge cards, not the norm..... ( in a good way)

    I love the idea of rounding the pot by adding pop dots in the middle..
