Happy May! Since Mother's Day is fast approaching, I wanted to share a card I made for one of the special ladies' in my life. I used the Moonbeam Meadow, Love Birds set for my main image. I diecut a circle out of watercolor stock using the Die'Sire Essentials, Circles dies. I colored the image in with my Spectrum Aqua Markers using Begonia, Desert, Terra Cotta, Heather, Sunflower, Fawn, Kingfisher, Navy, Bud Green, Peach, Marigold, Sunset, Slate, Blossom, Sea Green, Chocolate, and Aquamarine and my trusty water brush pen. I just swipe the larger end of the marker onto an acrylic block and pick up the color with my water brush pen and start coloring. These are by far my absolute favorite item to grab to color an image in.
For the sentiment, I used the Die'sire Essentials, Scalloped Squares with a piece of navy cardstock. I stamped the "For Someone So Special" from the Bebunni Floral, Bloom & Grow set with Memento Luxe in Wedding Dress and used some white embossing powder and a heat gun to really make the wording pop.
I glued the sentiment square to the diecut circle image and added three pearls for something fun. I wanted to make this really shine by adding some subtle texture and color to the background. I used a piece of Shimmering Cardstock in Yellow Pearl with my Blooming Wonderful embossing folder. I rounded all the corners to soften it up and used foam adhesive to glue to my white card base. I then also used more foam adhesive to blue my image and sentiment to the embossed panel.
I hope you were inspired to create some Mother's Day cards for those special women in your life. Brighten someone's day with a handmade card. It really makes the recipient feel special! Happy Saturday!
