Card A Day Blog Post: Mother's Day

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by. It's that time again for another card for the Card A Day Blog. This week's theme is Mother's Day.

To make my card, I started off with a 5.5" x 4.25" white card base. I wanted to use some flowers that I had pre-made, using my Cameo, and I also wanted to use ribbon as well, so I went looking through my massive collection and found this polka dot ribbon, from Really Reasonable Ribbon, that I thought would work great for my project. I could not find this particular ribbon on their site at the time of this post, so I 'm not sure if they still carry it, but they do have some other wonderful ribbons that would work just as well.

For my background paper, I chose this purple card stock that I thought would go well with the ribbon and flowers, cut it to 5.25" x 4", ran it through my Cuttlebug, using the Swirl embossing folder, by Darice, cut a length of the ribbon to fit the piece, leaving a little more length to wrap around the edges, adhered it to my embossed card stock, then adhered that to the front of the card base.

I stamped the Mother's Day sentiment from Verve, using the Memento, Cottage Ivy ink pad, cut it to size, and matted it on a piece of light pink card, then attached it to my card. I then added the flowers that I had made from the Assorted Basic Flowers file, that I purchased from the Silhouette Studio store, with jewel Dazzles added to the middle.  

I hope you like my latest creation, and if you have the time, please leave me a comment, and let me know what you think.

Super cute card and I just love the colors too. The swirls embossing is a nice touch ad the stamp is cute with the flower in it :)
