Welcome Back for a peek at Today’s Card!
I spent all day making cards for Mother’s Day…you do realize that
Mother’s Day is next weekend? Yes, it came up quicker than I expected!
My Mom is in heaven…but I have my Daughter, other Grand-daughter’s Mother,
Son’s Fiancé’, Sisters, Sisters-in-law, and nieces, that are all Moms too!
We can always find someone to give a Mother’s Day Card!
A while ago, a group I belong to, had a Card swap.
This Card is one I received…from Carla Turchetti
I loved this Card…so different!
I decided to CASE (Copy And Share Everything), but I changed up
a few things to make it my own!
Here is the inside of Carla’s Card!
Carla fussy-cut this flower out after stamping!
You can’t see it well, but behind the flower, Carla stamped and then
heat embossed in Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder!
Here is my Card!
I used Carla’s lay out and the overall design. I changed up the Embossing Folder,
the color of the circle, the Baker’s Twine instead of ribbon, and the circle DSP!
Here is the inside of my Card!
