For Mum

Hi everyone,


This card is for my Mum.


I used the one of the sentiments from the Blessed Mother stamp set, I like both sentiments but this one I think suited the card.


I used Marina Mist for the base of the card and a sample of the paper from Beau Chateau DSP.  My Mum loves the sort of look of this DSP with its soft colours.


I used the Two Tags Die and cut out one of the tags in Crumb Cake and the other in Very Vanilla.  The ribbon is the Very Vanilla Velvet Designer Ribbon, which is available in the current Summer Mini.  It is feels so lovely!


Of course there is ‘bling’ as I added some Rhinestones and the light swirl is from the Creative Elements stamp set.






Stamp set: Blessed Mother, Creative Elements
Ink: Marina Mist

Card Stock: Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla

Accessories:  1-3/3/8” (1 cm) Very Vanilla Velvet Designer Ribbon, Two Tags Dies, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive
