Mother's Day 2011

All stamps Hero Arts; CL449, CG245 & CL477

I made this card for my mom for Mother's Day this weekend. She likes rose but I don't have a rose stamp. I thought I could fake it a bit with these poppy flowers and this leaf stamp. I stamped the poppies in Shabby Shutters Distress Ink on white cardstock. I added yellow centers with colored pencil. I then cut out a few select poppies for this card. I colored more white cardstock with the same green ink and then stamped the leaf stem and cut it out. For the background, I took more white cardstock and colored with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. I stamped the Classic Fabric Design stamp with Versamark ink and then used clear embossing powder. I then covered the image with Fired Brick Distress Ink. I scratched the edges of the image with the edge of my scissors to expose the white core. I adhered the panel to a green card which I distressed the edges in more green ink. I foam dotted the leaves and flowers to the panel and added a green ribbon. I finished off the card with a white bow. TFL!
