The image stamp that I used for my card is one that I've had for quite awhile. It's a silhouette stamp, and I was never sure how I wanted to use it, but while I was looking through my stamps for an idea for my card, this stamp practically jumped out at me. I knew I wanted flowers, and I knew I wanted a child or children, and I wanted something playful. Well, here it is:
I decided that, rather than use the silhouette in the regular black on white that we are so accustomed to seeing, I would stamp my silhouette in reverse, that is, white on black. It's a little unexpected, and I thought it would be a bit more fun. I layered it with foam tape on a piece of yellow card leaving a narrow border. On a white card base, 4 1/4x5 1/2, I applied three pieces of a bright floral dp. I used a wide strip in the center, and triangles on the sides. I then affixed the matted image with more foam tape for extra dimension. My last addition to the front was a simple tag stamped with the word, mother.
I decided to bring a little color to the inside of my card by adding another triangle of the dp in one corner before stamping the sentiment.
And there you have it, a really quick and easy card that you can put together for your mother or adapt the design for any other occasion.
