Pink Roses for Mother’s Day

Kia ora Koutou

I would like to wish you all a happy Easter. I hope you all have a lovely weekend celebrating this occasion with family and friends.

Mother’s Day is not far away and I have a sweet Mother’s Day card to share with you. I fell in love with the Altenew Vintage Lace Embossing Folder and the coordinating stencils because the honeycomb background is just gorgeous and I just love roses! I tend to gravitate to roses all the time… I have made a step card using a retired die from Spellbinders – Decorated Birthday Pop Up die and decorated the front with strips made from die cutting white card with the Lawn Fawn Quilted Background die. I then embossed a piece of white cardstock and coloured the roses with the coordinating stencil. I trimmed this down and added a frame using the Amazing Paper Grace Oval Fluted Classics with foam tape to put the focus on the roses.

I reverse hot foiled the Mother’s Day sentiment from Spellbinders Happy Parents hot foil plate and die cut it with the coordinating die.

To finish I have added pink jewels to the intersections of the quilted background.

Clean and Simple Sympathy Card

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I want to share a clean and simple sympathy card made using some new dies and embossing folder that I have just received.

Sometimes the dies will dictate what genre of card you end up with and this gorgeous butterfly corner die from Precious Marieke made a sympathy card inevitable.  I have cut two of the corners and trimmed the butterfly to add over the other butterfly on the corner and I put the trimmings on the opposite corner.  The Lawn Fawn frame dies are gorgeous and they framed the lovely Stampin’ Up embossing folder perfectly.  I really love the sentiment from Heartfelt Creations and it was perfect to add to the simplicity of the card.  The card looked unfinished until I added a little bit of sparkle with some sparkles from CTMH.
