Mother's Day Card

I didn’t take a photograph of this card I made my Mum for Mother’s Day so had to borrow it back from her to take one!

The background is rubber stamped with versamark ink and brushed over with some mica powder(in reality the green is a little deeper than it shows up in the photo). I printed out ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ and mounted it onto the card with 3d foam pads. The ‘MUM’ at the bottom is rub on letters.

The heart is made from plaster cloth - I cut out a heart shape from card then covered it with the wet plaster cloth all over and moulded it to the heart shape. A few beads and some ribbon - all in Mum’s favourite colour - green, finished it off nicely. The heart is detachable from the card and can be used as a little wall or door handle hanging.

I’m pleased to say she loved the card and we all had a lovely day - despite the fact that I cooked Sunday lunch for everyone which for once turned out half decent - lol.

This is lovely Sherry - I'm sure your Mum was thrilled and will treasure it. Even more precious that you made it for her.
