Happy Mother’s Day

Hi, It’s Jackie Smith here and I’m back with another card to show you. Knowing how much my mom loves to get flowers for Mother’s Day, I decided to do a spring meadow card using various Peel-Offs and lots of Elizabeth Craft Designs dies. I even improvised using Glitter Icicles Peel-Offs for grass which I colored using Copic Markers.

Instructions:

1. Create card base using flower patterned paper. Cut to 6″x 12″, score at 6″ and fold in half.
For the inside, cut light brown paper to 5 3/4″ x 11″ and score at 5 1/2″. Place Lots of Pops die on score line and cut out using die cut machine. Adhere brown paper to the inside of the card.IMG_0946-1

2. Cut purple paper to 5 1/2″x 5 1/2″ and purple flower paper to 5″x 5″. Adhere to card front using double-sided adhesive.

3. For the inside, cut 2 pieces of green dotted paper 3 3/4″x 5 1/4″ and 2 pieces of green flower paper 3 1/2″x 5″. Layer and adhere to top and bottom.

4. Color Glitter Icicles Peel-Offs using Copic Markers (G29 and YG99). Adhere them as shown.IMG_0943-1

5. Die cut various flowers using Yellow Iridescent, Orange Iridescent, Pink Iridescent and Purple Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz. Die cut flower stems (included in Daisy die) using Green Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz. Adhere as shown. Die cut flower centers out of Pink and Yellow Velvet Adhesive Sheets.IMG_0949-2

6. Place 3 butterflies and 3 lotus flowers peel-offs onto watercolor paper. Colour with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Use a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush to add some sparkles to the butterflies and flowers. Adhere butterflies to card. I adhered the butterflies to long stick pins first so it would look like they are flying off into the meadow. IMG_0948-1

7. Die cut tag out of purple paper. Stamp sentiment for card front with black Crafter’s ink and emboss using JudiKins Embossing Powder “Rustique Weathered Iron”. Using the same black Crafter’s ink, stamp sentiment for the inside of the card and emboss using Adirondack Embossing Powder “Eggplant”. Die cut label using one of the decorator dies from the Katie Label Pivot Card. IMG_0947-1

    You are so clever to use the icicles (which I love) as grass. Wonderful Mother’s Day card, so full of colour and obviously made with love.
    Cheers,
    Karen
