Happy Mother's Day!

I thought I had two Mother's Day cards already made, but when I went downstairs to get them last night, I found that one of them was actually a birthday card. So I had to make another one at 10:30 last night!

I started with a Lemon Tart card base, and layered a piece of Summer Sunrise stamped with Canvas on it. I tied an olive ribbon around the card. The branches and leaves were stamped with Landscape palette ink on a white rectangle, and the flowers were stamped in Lemon Tart and Summer Sunrise. I cut them out, put a chocolate brad in the centers, and popped them up with dimensionals on the branches. I matted the flower/branch layer on chocolate and attached to the card base with dimensionals. I cut a piece of olive paper, rounded the corners, stamped the words, and added a row of piercing and a small flower. If I had to do it again, I would add another chocolate layer underneath the Canvas-stamped Summer Sunrise.

Have a wonderful day, thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: stamps - Canvas, Beautiful Blooms (PTI), Green Thumb (PTI), Happy Thoughts (Verve) paper - Lemon Tart (PTI), Summer Sunrise (PTI), olive, ww, chocolate ink - lemon tart, summer sunrise, and landscape palette; chocolate chip acc - chocolate brads (Darice), olive gg, dimensionals, small corner rounder, mat pack & piercer
