Mojo Monday Week 78


Check out my Blog Candy - Ends 3rd April



I am smitten on Mojo Monday's sketches. I love the clean lines and simplicity of them and the creations of the designers always amaze me. And yes, another Mother's Day card - I don't want to disappoint my colleagues. Last year I had 30 ordered so you can imagine how busy I was. This is one of my favourites - I like the colours and once again I experimented on making some flowers myself as its cheaper. This time I used stamping and cutting but read on to see how I made them.





Materials:





Sugared - Basic Grey
Cream and Brown Cardstock
Ric Rac - Coffee Papermania
Rhinestones
You inspire me - Debbi Moore
From the Garden -Fancy Pants
Pink and Brown Pigment Ink
Swirls - U mount



Tools:

Sizzix Die Cutting Machine
Trixie Girl Alphabeth Set



How to:

  1. Cut three panels from two different patterned paper and a bookmark sized cream card stock for the front panel.
  2. Stick the patterned paper and hide the edges with ric rac.
  3. Die cut the word 'Mum' from brown cardstock and stick on top of the book mark.
  4. Stamp the sentiment and the swirls. Stamp the bigger flowers with pink ink on a separate card stock and then stamp the brown border flower on top of it. Stamp the smaller flowers and using a tweezer to help you ink the edges. Cut out.
  5. Stick the flowers on the bookmark with foam tape and assemble everything on card as shown.
