Mother's Love

I made another card filled with beautifully handmade flowers using dies. I decided this would be a Mother's Day card as that special day is fast approaching too!

I also used an embossing folder to make the oval center design. In order to make it that way I had to use another accompanying tool which blocks off areas of the embossing folder so that only certain parts are embossed. The embossing folder called Frame It and the tool are both from Inside Out Embossing Plates. The embossed area was on the ivory panel.

I made the flowers from various colors of card stock so as to give the feel of a bouquet of beautiful blooms. I used rhinestones to add more decoration to each flower center. And the sentiment was stamped in black to match the black layer which outlined the panel of ivory card stock. This sentiment is from the Wild Hibiscus set by Altenew.

The Cheery Lynn Designs dies used are:
B181 Build a Flower #1
B117S Mini Fanciful Flourish

The photo below shows more of the dimension of the card elements.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge
Double D's Blog Challenge
Scrapy Land Blog Challenge

Tonight is my Dancing With the Stars program so I won't be doing any cards then. For some reason I like that show a lot. And my Monday has been a good one as we got over an inch of rain this weekend. Still no sunshine, so sounds like we may be getting some more before the day is through. I hope you had a great Monday as well.

God bless,
