Mother's Day is almost here, and the Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge this month is just what you need to get cards made for the special moms, grandmas, wives, daughters, aunts, and friends in your life. So, let's Celebrate Mom!
I used the Fancy Monograms stamp set to emboss "MOM" on the banner, which I cut from the Sweeties Wagon Sweet Cuts die set. The individual letters and the layer behind the bow were cut with dies in the Beautiful Little Wishes Sweet Cuts die set. I heat embossed flowers from the Pretty Posies stamp set onto the music paper and added Pearl Pen pearls to the centers, as well as several places on the card. I used Inka Gold to a die cut strip of kraft cs to create a faux metal strip and distressed it with Distress Embossing Powder and some chunky glitter. The bow is made with Cupcake Seam Binding and Cotton Candy Twine, both of which are available in the Paper Sweeties Boutique!
The graphic for the challenge is so delicate and feminine. I love all the soft colors. Unfortunately, I couldn't seem to get the orange tone out of the photo of my card without losing the magenta, so in real life, it's a much softer card.
The inside of the card is much closer to what the card looks like in person. The sentiments came from the So Sweet of You stamp set. I stamped them more than once to get a shadow effect.
