Happy Friday! Today's Fabulous Friday project for the Sisters in Stamping blog is a Mother's Day card that I made for my Mom. She is visiting family in Japan right now and won't be home until after Mother's Day, so we'll have to celebrate it a little late. I'm happy to have her card made in advance, though! This card features the Delightful Dozen stamp set for the sentiment and the retiring First Edition specialty paper and Brights Patterns designer paper stack. I also used very vanilla, soft suede and old olive card stock. The punch art flower was created using the 1-3/4" and 1-1/4" scallop circle punches, Blossom punch, Bird Builder punch and Boho Blossoms punch.Here's a close-up of the flower... I added texture to the soft suede piece behind it by running it through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain folder. To create the flower, I scrunched each layer after cutting it out and then lighly sponged the edges with melon mambo ink. They are all held together with one of the cute antique brass button brads from the Vintage Trinkets pack. I like the way my clean and simple (CAS) card turned out and I think my Mom is going to like it, too!
