Hi Stampers. Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, so I thought I’d dig through my stamp stash and come up with a few options to sell in my Etsy store. I just love how this one came out! It features the Stampin’ Up! Crazy About You stamp set that is about to retire. I love that set because it covers so many occasions all in one set. It’s very useful!
For the card base I used the soon to retire, Tip Top Taupe. I’m gonna miss that color! I cut the card base 8.5″ x 5.5″ and scored at 4.25″. Next is a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Pink Pirouette, with a 4″ x 2.5″ piece of Whisper White card stock and 1/2 of a doily. I added the doily with a few strategically placed mini glue dots. I then added a strip of the Sweet Sugarplum ribbon.
Stampin’ Tip: For the ribbon, I cut a piece 5″ long and wrapped it around the Pink Pirouette layer and adhered it with glue dots on the back side. I then adhered the Pink Pirouette layer to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals so that the bulk from the ribbon wrapped around the back would not be noticeable.
For the focal point I stamped the flower from the crazy about you stamp set twice onto scraps of Whisper White card stock. Once in Sweet Sugarplum ink and once in Pink Pirouette ink. For the flower stamped in Sweet Sugarplum, I punched it out with the Flower Medallion Punch. For the flower stamped ink Pink Pirouette ink, I used my paper snips to fussy cut the outer most layer of petals off. I adhered the Sweet Sugarplum flower to the card base with mini glue dots and then the Pink Pirouette flower on top of that with Stampin’ Dimensionals and finished it off with a rhinestone in the middle. The leaves are cut using the Flourish Thinlit Dies and Garden Green card stock. I stamped the “Happy” and “Mother’s Day” stamps from the Crazy About You stamp set in the lower right corner of the white layer in Sweet Sugar Plum ink.
The interior of the card is a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White with a portion of the flower stamped in Sweet Sugarplum ink in the upper left and lower right corner.
