Special Card for a Special Mum

Hi there, how are you today?

Here we are mid week and mid month! In the blink of an eye it will be mid year aaack!!

Exciting things are happening during the month of May, especially if you are a huge fan of the fabulous Stampin' Up! papers like me.

This means that every time you purchase three packs of Designer Series Papers* (pp128-130 Ideas Book & Catalogue and p13 & p17 Autumn Winter Mini) you get a fourth pack for FREE!   That is $18.95 value at no extra charge. There are so many great papers to choose from and with so many beautiful designs its easy to find perfect paper for that next project.  There are fourteen packs to choose from for a full list check out the Paper Party Flyer.

I used the stunning Stampin' Up! Attic Boutique papers to create my Mum's Mother's Day card.

My Mum is a big fan of Vintage Style but it is waaay out of my comfort zone,
but these pretty papers made putting this card together pretty easy.

I basically cut up the sheets of DSP and layered them to create the whole card.

The Parasol is from the Stampin' Up!Rue Des Fleurs stamp set and is the only part of this card that has been stamped (except for the sentiment). I stamped  the parasol using Stampin' Up!Pool Party ink. I used a Stampin' Up! marker in the same colour to create the faux stitching.

The corset and the flowers have been cut from different parts of the DSP and sort of spliced together.

Not one to waste even the tiniest piece of this beautiful paper I uses a small left over piece to carry the theme right through to the inside of the card.
