Happy Mother’s Day Card

20110501_4 For this card I started with a 5” X 7” white pre-folded card base. I used the Lori’s Garden cartridge for all the patterned papers. I started with the 5:7 stock image rectangle and flooded it with the floral blue pattern and cut it down to 4 3/4” X 6 3/4”. I then cut a piece of white card stock 2” x 6 3/4” and used  Martha Stewart border punch on it and put that across the middle of my card. I added a light blue and white dotted ribbon across the top of the white to cover the edge of the card stock. I then used my Elegant Edges cartridge and flooded the shadow of this image with a pink patterned paper and cut it at 4”.  I cut the base layer flooded with a blue patterned paper. I then cut the image one more time at 3 1/2” and flooded it with a solid dark blue also from Lori’s Garden Imagine cartridge. I ran the solid blue piece through my Cuttlebug and embossed it with the Swiss Dots folder. I cut the pansy image from Lori’s Garden as well at 3” using the layers feature. I pop dotted many of the layers of the flowers to give dimension to the card. I adhered mat cut from Elegant Edges to the card with pop dots but the individual layers where adhered together with my ATG gun. To finish the card, I tied a small bow and adhered it to the ribbon with a pop dot. Added some pearls at the lower edge of my card and stamped my sentiment. Thanks for visiting.
