Hello all!!! I hope you are enjoying a beautiful Friday. The sun is out and the flowers are blooming here in my corner of Michigan!!!
I want you to look around at your surroundings. What do you see? Is there a picture you have that you have thought many times would make a nice card, or do you have an awesome view from your windows? Whatever may be around your home that gives you inspiration, that is what I want you to use for this week.
My inspiration came from the new "Welcome" mat I recently purchased for my front door. Every time I come home, I look at it and think "That would make a neat card." Well, today I sat down and created it!
I started with a card base of Kraft (soon-to-be Crumb Cake) and layered that with Whisper White and Gable Green. I am trying to use as many retiring colors I can now so I wont have a ton left over come the new catalog year.
Since the mat has white polka dots in the background, I ran my Gable Green layer through the Big Shot with the Perfect Details texture plate. I then colored all of the dots with my white gel pen. They're a little difficult to see on the the Gable Green.
I used another strip of Kraft/Whisper White across the bottom and covered it with a piece of the Melon Mambo polka dotted gg, except I flipped it over. Way too many polka dots! My flower comes from the Pretties Kit and place a large white grommet in the center and filled it with clear chunky and pink fine glitter. I also ran the Melon Mambo pad around the edges of the flower to make it pop a little more.
The butterflies were made with the awesome Beautiful Wings embosslit using Razzleberry Lemonade dsp. And for a little more bling, I added two of the small rhinestones from the Eggcellent Easter Egg kit on my sentiment panel.
Not sure who this will go too, as I have my mother's day card already made, but I do have many friends at work who are mother's!!
This is an absolutely gorgeous card. Thanks for sharing.
