Hi everyone! I do hope you and your family enjoyed a beautiful Easter celebration. Our Easter service was so joyful, and filled with glorious music. I'm here, today, to bring you a Mother's Day inspiration for the Card A Day Blog. I really enjoyed making this card, using images from one of the Crafter's Digital Art Center Progressive Challenges. The girl in the image reminds me of my daughter, so I decided to make this card for her to give to her grandmother. Here's the first peek:
The girl is a digi image from Back To Paper. I colored her with copics, and paper-pieced her dress using a matching blue marker to color the trim. The flowers are another digi, this time from Glitterbabe. I printed the flower in the yellow paper in three sizes and cut them out for dimension. The stems are just cut from a scrap.
The card stock I used is a nice weight, and I wasn't expecting the color to bleed through, but it did! Since I needed to cover the bleed on the inside, I printed the sentiment directly onto a matching blue card stock and used it as a liner.
And a closer view so you can see the fonts used:
Of course, I had to get daughter's approval every step of the way. She chose the outside sentiment, which comes from Sarah Hamer of 'My Pink Cricut.' Here is the full front view:
As you can see, I rounded the corners. I cut the liner just a bit smaller and rounded those corners to match. And of course Grandmom needs a little bling, so rhinestones were added to the flowers.
I hope you enjoyed your visit today! Think about joining the CADB challenges. Please do remember to keep your creative genius happy and well-fed!!
