Hey crafty friends, it’s Amanda from Pear Blossom Press. I know it’s a little early for Mother’s Day cards in the US, but I’ve been wanting to make this card for months. When I saw the Flower Bursts die set, I thought they’d be really pretty cut out of vellum and glitter paper. (The delicate lines of the burst dies really pop when you cut them out of glitter paper.) I knew I wanted to add in a few feathers too, so I picked my color scheme based on the feathers I chose. I picked a bushed gold background and gold glitter paper for the flowers. I used Copic markers to color the vellum leaves. The die set comes with a pretty overlay for the leaves, and I thought about using it too, but I was afraid more glitter paper would distract from the flowers. Instead, I chose to add a little more of the glitter paper as the outline to the word MOM, that I cut out with the Haley Outline Alphabet die set.
To finish the card, I layered everything onto a white card base that I had embossed with a woodgrain embossing folder. I added Aqua Shimmer to the white flower centers and letters. I also added some bronze sequins with a coat of Diamond Glaze on top. I love the way this card turned out with the combination of natural elements and gold accents. What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by today; I’ll be back soon with more fun cards to share. Don’t forget, you can get free shipping this month to celebrate National Craft Month.
