PAPER GARDEN's MOTHER's DAY CARDS 2018




*click on photos for close-up views

Welcome everyone to my blog!  
created a card using Paper-Garden's beautiful cardstock
 and a few of my favourite dies and techniques. 

To see how you can help determine the winners for the challenge, see below.

Choosing beautiful colours to celebrate Mother's Day was fairly 
easy as I always love the combo of pink, green and white!  
To make it more fabulous, Paper-Garden's soft shimmering cardstock 
really adds that lovely quality you'd want in a card for your Mom!
 Look for their Curious Metallics cardstock. The white base of 
my card is their sturdy cover weight in Ice Silver. I am a real fan now!

I chose to use my Fantasy Floral 3D Die Set from Altenew, and my 
Large Lace Faerie Queen (butterfly) die.  I wanted the title MOM
to be simple and in subtle contrast to the fussiness of the flowers
and butterfly!  White on white is always so clean and fresh!
The flowers were cut from Altenew's 3D type dies and I watercoloured
the flowers using watercolour pencils. 



Inside card
I fell in love with this gorgeous green cardstock immediately! 
It's called Stardream Fairway. 
It's shimmer is distinct and I am sorry if that is not easily seen in
my pictures, but trust me, you will love it. In expressing a sentiment
to one's Mom you can't go wrong with a simple visual of hearts!

The butterfly is very detailed and requires attention to die-cut it well. 
But I used a cardstock that has a tone-on-tone satin-to-matte finish and when you 
sponge ink onto it, the pattern becomes more obvious. I layered the die so I
could fluff up the butterfly. The same goes for the hearts - everything helps
to add dimension and life to this card.  

I hope you've enjoyed my card, and thank you for visiting.
