So Grateful, for Mom!

A Grateful Heart

This is the card that I gave to my ‘mothers’ for Mother’s Day.  I am so grateful for both my Step-Mother and my Mother-in-Law; even more so the longer my own mom is gone.  Since I didn’t have a sentiment that expressly said “happy mother’s day” I opted for one that expressed how I felt.  Being grateful for these woman that the Lord has placed in my life, I thought this sentiment from  “Pursuit of Happiness” fit the bill.  Raspberry Ripple and Pool Party markers let me isolate the words to stamp the sentiment as shown to stamp on the Whisper White card base.

I used our Oval Framelits dies to create the cut-out in the Pool Party cardstock which I then ran through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  Secret Garden provided the stamp set and coordinating framelit dies for the flowers.

After stamping the flower outlines with versamark ink, I heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.  Then I used Primrose Petals ink on a sponge dauber to add color to the large flower, Raspberry Ripple on the lower flower and Wisteria Wonder on the top flower.  Since the flower centers are smaller than the sponge daubers, I used a Q-tip to apply Summer Starfruit ink to the flower centers.  The leaves were cut from leftover DSP I had in Pear Pizzaz – a color coming back!  (See Color Refresh chart here).

My finishing touch was with the help of some strategically placed Dazzling Diamonds.
