Mother's Day Card


This is the card I've made for my lovely Mum
for Mother's Day - this coming Sunday here in the UK.

The focal point is the dressmaker's form cut from mountboard
using the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alterations 'Sewing Room' die
which I coloured with Distress Ink (Mustard Seed) 
and dressed with wired ribbon.

The background is embossed with
Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alterations Texture Fades
'Pattern and Stitches Set'
and highlighted with Distress Ink (Shabby Shutters)

I coloured some white seam binding with the
Shabby Shutters Distress Ink too, wrapped it underneath
the embossed card and tied into a bow at the side.

The sentiment is a mixture of different stamps
onto white card and edged with more of the 
Shabby Shutters Distress Ink.


I layered up three 3D sticky foam pads to raise the
form up from the card.

I'm adding this card to the following blogs:

Thanks for looking, and if you are a Mum,
I hope you have a lovely Mother's Day xx

Thanks for popping in on me and for your kind comments on the doll and dragonfly - that sounds like a snappy title for an altered book.
Glad you are getting your pages prepped, just hope your fingers didn't get as mucky as mine - glue everywhere.
