Hello and welcome to the Stamp It Group’s Mother’s Day Blog Hop! My name is Christina Miller and you are visiting my blog, Christina’s Creative Corner! Whether this is your first stop on the blog hop tour or you have hopped on over from another blog, thank you for letting me share my creation with you today!
With Mother’s Day just a couple weeks away, now is a good time to get started on your cards and crafts! When it comes to Mother’s Day, do you send cards to your friends and family (aside from your mother, MIL, and/or grandmother(s))? I sure do! This is a great way to let them know that you are thinking of them and honoring them on Mother’s Day, especially now! With the supplies I used, I will show you how to make multiples of a truly lovely card to send out.
The base layer is Petal Pink Vellum Cardstock from the Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. The vellum cardstock is embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing folder, on the lighter (or smooth) side of the vellum cardstock. What that means is, the lighter side of the cardstock is facing the side of the EF that has the logo and line:
For the rest of the card front, you will need:
1. Stamp the sentiment from Strong & Beautiful in Lovely Lipstick in on a ½” strip of Whisper White cardstock, trimming any excess off. This is a great way to use those ½” strips from when you cut your Whisper White cardstock down to 4” x 5 ¼”.
2. Using this design from the Best Dressed 6” x 6” DSP, use the fourth largest (or fourth smallest, or the middle size) layering Stitched Rectangle Die.
3. On a piece of Basic Black cardstock, heat emboss this stamp from Beautiful Moments stamp set in Shimmer White Embossing Powder. The image is then cut out with the fourth largest Stitched Nested Label Dies.
4. You will also need three Champagne Rhinestone Jewels, not pictured.
The heat embossed image is adhered to the middle of the DSP and I used the three rhinestones in the center of the flowers on the DSP. I first adhered the sentiment with dimensionals along the bottom of the embossed vellum and then adhered the DSP layer with dimensionals. Adhering the sentiment first helped make sure I evenly adhere all pieces to the embossed vellum base layer:
This completed piece is adhered to a Lovely Lipstick cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”, placing the adhesive behind the sentiment and DSP pieces:
For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment from Strong & Beautiful in Lovely Lipstick ink, and adhere a ¾” strip of the same DSP design as the card front along the bottom:
Isn’t this a beautiful card? I chose to heat emboss the image on the card front with the Shimmer White Emboss Powder because I felt it tied into the inside sentiment. Now, when you use 6” x 6” and the Stitched Rectangle Die, you can get two pieces from the DSP when you cut the pieces out side by side. This will then leave just under a 2” strip of DSP, which I cut two ¾” strips to adhere to the inside cardstock, trimming off the excess. I had three pieces of this DSP left, so I was able to make a total of six cards!
