Hello, and welcome back! This week's challenge is to make a project for the mothers (or mother figures) in our lives over at the Can You Case It Blog.
I decided to pull out my Flower Patch stamp set and matching Flower Fair Framelits Dies for this card. I wanted to make a wreath from them, so I die cut a circle into a piece of Sahara Sand, and arranged my flowers around it, leaving a spot at the bottom for a thick baker's twine bow. I was afraid that maybe the flowers were a little too large for this design, but I like how it turned out. After the flowers were adhered to the Sahara Sand piece, it was adhered to a Whisper White card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.
To finish the card, I used the Hello You Thinlits Dies for the "happy", which I die cut twice and glued together. I also hand cut a white banner, folded the ends, and stamped "Mother's Day" in the center. Both of these pieces were glued to the sides of the wreath. You can see a close-up below. The colors I used are listed below along with all of the other supplies.
I'm also entering this in the Virginia's View Challenge #14 for Layers and Dimension.
Well, that's all for today. I hope you'll join us at CYCI this week and create (and share) a special project for your Mother. Thanks for stopping by!
