Today is Mother’s Day and I made this card for my mother-in-law. She loves flowers so I thought a trellis with flowers growing upon it would make her smile! I couldn’t wait to use my Hardwood background stamp. It looks like a weather piece of wood, especially when stamped in shades of grey. I used Smokey Slate ink on Smokey Slate cardstock to create a tone-on-tone image.
I had to use the Lattice Bigz die once more before it retires.
The flowers were created using the Petite Petals stamp set & coordinating punch. (Bundle & Save! when you purchase these together). I used Daffodil Delight ink on both Daffodil Delight cardstock and Whisper White and I threw in a few flowers stamped in Hello Honey ink on Hello Honey cardstock. I just had to use some of the new 2014-2016 In Colors! A few candy dots became flower centers. And because there was some grass growing at the bottom of the trellis, I had to use my new fringe scissors too!
The sentiment comes from the Loving Thoughts stamp set which is also retiring.
