Today the Artisan's are being featured again over in the Stampin' Up! Facebook Artisan Gallery. We were asked to choose between making a Mother's Day project or something for spring. I decided to go with the Mother's Day theme...afterall, I needed to make a card for my wonderful mother, so why not now?
Can you believe that this card is made entirely from Whisper White card stock. I started with a basic 5.5" x 4.25" card base. Then I punched three strips of white card stock with the Lace Border Punch and carefully glued them to the base. I love how it gives the illusion of dry embossing. Then I stamped the greeting in Basic Black Classic Ink. Once the base of the card was finished, I stamped several sets of flowers on Whisper White CS with Basic Black Ink and colored them using a blender pen and reinkers. After everything was dry, I fussy cut three bunches of flowers and arranged them like a bouquet using Dimensionals to adhere them to the card base. For the final touches I added a double bow and various sized pearls to the flower centers. You can find a list of the ingredients over in the gallery. Be sure to head over and see what some of the other talented Artisan's have to share with you today.
Sometimes I get asked how to mail a card like this. Most of the time I hand deliver a card with lots of layers, but if it absolutely needs to be mailed, I use a padded envelope. Yes it does increase the mailing cost, but it is worth every penny.
