I know that Mother's Day was last Sunday, but my mother was out of town and I knew I'd be visiting her this week, so I hand delivered her card, which uses the color palette.
Here's the color palette.
Here's my card!
I wanted the focus to be on the beautiful bouquet, so I kept the card's design fairly simple. The bluish patterned papers, from a 6x6 pad by Bazzill Basics, and white patterned paper, from a 6x6 pad by My Mind's Eye, were die-cut with the same die from the 5x7 Card Creator Nestabilities die set (Spellbinders). The blue patterned papers were layered onto off-white cardstock to form the card front. The City Girl Edger die (Cherry Lynn) and a nameplate (Spellbinders) were used to die-cut the white patterned paper, which had already been die-cut to the correct width.
The City Girl Edger die-cuts were adhered to the top of the card front and over the seam of the layered blue papers. The next step was to position and adhere the vase, flowers, and leaves. The roses image was popped up a bit with some scraps of cardstock.
The sentiment (Purple Onion Designs) was stamped onto the nameplate, which was then adhered to the card front.
By the way, my mom loved the card!
Thanks for visiting today!
