Happy Mother's Day!

To my Mom.........

This is the card I made for my Mom.   I didn't have this in mind at all when I started.  It just evolved!

I started with the verse from KaiserCraft.  That led me to find a tag for it.  I chose SPellbinders Fancy Tags Three S5-031 cut from gold metallic paper.  I added the verse stamped and cut out of white cs aged with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo.  The gold tag is layered onto a dark red tag, also from Fancy Tags Three.  I rubbed Black STazOn ink over the embossed areas of both.  I've used the cut-outs above and below the tags.   The next layer is Labels Sixteen S4-301 cut from DP with a gold frame cut from Labels Sixteen #5 & 6 (#1 being smallest).  Next is a Fleur de Lis Square S4-318.  These are layered onto a dark red mat, music DP mat and card, all cut with 3 sizes of Grand Labels One LF-161.  All have been distressed with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo inks.   I added pearl dots with a Viva Gold Pearl Pen.

I waited to post this so Mom wouldn't see it before I could give it to her.  She often checks my blog.
She loved it!   I recently showed her the Grand Calibur and how it works as well as some of the die templates.  When she saw the card, she immediately knew it was Spellbinders die cuts!!!  She even counted all the layers!   
The day I gave her the mini demo about Spellbinders, her mind was whirling with ideas of how to use the Grand Calibur with fabrics.  I offered to buy her one but she declined.  SHe was sure she could get me to cut her some shapes!!!   Thanks, Mom, for passing on to me the ability to see creative possibilities!  And for all the exposure to sewing and lots of DIY inspiration!  You're the best! 

A belated Happy Mother's Day to everyone!

Your Mother's Day card is very elegant!

I am going to look for some of your masculine cards and try my hand at a B-day card to a male who is 70 years old and who has a 1958 corvette....

Thanks again!
