Mother’s Day Card

This is the prototype for my Mother’s Day Cards.  This one will be for my Mom because she likes pastels.  I will change the colors for each of my daughters and daughters-in-laws because they like totally different colors.  Hopefully I will remember to take a picture before I mail them out.

2.  Cut your Powder Pink card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Use one of the Petal Pair embossing folders on one side of your card front and run it through the Big Shot.  Repeat with the other side.  Glue to your card base.
3.  Die cut your flower pieces and leaves.
~Wild Wasabi Leaves:  Cut three leaves with the May Flowers Framelits.
~Berry Burst top flower layer:  Use both the flower petal die AND the framelit that fits around it to cut out this flower.  You can put 1-1/2″ x 2″ piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet on the back of the cardstock BEFORE cutting.  This will turn it into a sticker.  Otherwise just glue it onto the bottom flower layer.
~Fresh Fig bottom flower layer:  Use the same Framelit that went around the flower petal die to cut this layer.
~Attach top flower layer to bottom flower layer.
~Attach leaves to the back of the flower.  I used Tombow Glue.  Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the flower.
~Now cut the desired Stitched Shapes Circle in Powder Pink.  Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back.
~Stamp your Happy Mother’s Day on Whisper White cardstock in Berry Burst ink.  Punch out with the Classic Label Punch.  Put Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back.
4.  Put it all together:
~Lay all the pieces on your embossed card front where you want them.
~Put Tombow Glue on the back of the Doily in the center circle.  Attach to card front.

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut:
~Melon Mambo card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
~Tempting Turquoise card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″.
~3 Melon Mambo Detailed flowers using BOTH the Detailed Flower Thinlit (with all the petals) AND put the coordinating Framelit around it.  Cut both the Thinlit and the Framelit together to get the needed flower piece.  You will need 3 of these flowers.
~Now take just the Flower Framelit you used and cut three from Powder Pink card stock.
2.  Stamp your large sentiment on your Tempting Turquoise card front in Island Indigo ink.  Stamp so it is over to the right edge.
3.  Now to put together your flowers.  You have some options:
~Put a dab of Tombow Glue on your Silicone Craft sheet and use a Stamping Sponge wedge to pounce the glue onto the back of the Melon Mambo flower piece.  Attach to the Powder Pink flower piece lining up the outside edges.  Repeat with the other flower pieces.
~Apply either Fine Tip Glue or Tombow Glue directly in small dots or thin lines to the back of the Melon Mambo flower piece.  Attach to the Powder Pink flower piece lining up the outside edges.
~Use the NEW Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets on the back of the Melon Mambo card stock BEFORE you cut out the flower pieces.  Peel off the backing, then attach to the Powder Pink flower piece.  I have not tried this.  I thought of it during class after all the flowers had been cut out.
4.  Lay your flowers on the Tempting Turquoise card front where you want them.  Attach with Tombow Glue.  Cut off the parts that hang over the edge.  Attach your card front to your card base.
5.  Now embellish with some Pearls.  Make sure and put on an uneven number.

Sorry I have not been able to fix the links yet.  Now that my family reunion is over and my company is gone I will start looking for a new theme because the updates still have not made it so I can add links.
