Mother’s Day is another reason on the calendar to make a card – your own mum, a new mum, fur baby mum, remembering your mum, celebrating the mums who got promoted to grandmothers, sending love to a mother figure… Mother’s Day means something different to each person.
For me, it’s a chance to reflect on how lucky I am to have the three Mini Papercraft’s bringing me joy and driving me crazy in equal measures on a daily basis.
I am also blessed with an amazing Mum who loves and supports us in every way she can. This is the card I made for her –
I seem to be in a green phase at the moment! It’s funny how your brain favours colours. This is Just Jade, Sahara Sand and Mint Macaron.
The leaves are from the Forever Flourishing Dies, sentiment from the Dressed to Impress stamp set, embossing is the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder and dies from the Dressed to Impress Dies and Stitched Rectangles.
One of the products I added earlier in the year to my craft stash is a wax seal kit from Fiona Ariva and I’m in love! They make great envelope seals that complement the high quality of the Stampin’ Up!envelopes so well.
They also make a fantastic embellishment on a card front to elevate it to the next level!
The wax is a mix of green tones with a dried hydrangea flower and a twine bow. The finishing touch is a Soft Succulent In Color Jewel. Did I mention how much I’m loving greens – I think the addition of Soft Succulent into the colour range has a lot to do with it!
I hope you have a wonderful Sunday. The Mini Papercraft’s have promised me a home spa day – I’m not sure if that’s going to be a rewarding experience or kids revenge?! 🙂
