Mum's card for Mother's Day

Hello again

Can you believe I'm doing another post within hours of the last!  I seem to be all or nothing......  I did manage to get Mum's card done in time thankfully.  This is the first card I've made using a digital stamp and I have found it easier than I ever expected. This beautiful rose image is from A Passion for Stamps

The base card is 15x15cms and I embossed 2 lines around the edge at 0.5cm and 1cm using the Scorpal board. Next I printed the sentiment (using wordart, curly joe & diehl deco fonts) and the roses on white card and cut to size (12.5x12.5cms) and coloured them using Koh-i-noor pencils and Sansodor oil.  I printed the roses again on white card, coloured some of the petals and cut them out. 

After shaping the petals I glued them 3D using Pinflair glue gel.  Then added glossy accents along the edges of all the petals and sprinkled with glamour dust. I added 3 clear gems under the sentiment and using foam pads popped the finished square onto the base card.

And because I'm newly fangled with digital stamps (love getting a perfect image), I added the roses image again to the insert under the verse (callie font) and coloured it in :)

Thanks for visiting today, I should (hopefully) have more cards this week!

Both of your mother's day cards are gorgeous Sarah but I love the way you coloured this one and popped up some of the petals.

It was great to talk to you today and I'm glad you feel a bit stronger. Take care, Vx
