Did you know that Mother’s Day is the single biggest reason people send cards? Mother’s Day out sells every other holiday, world wide. That says a lot, since millions of cards are still mailed out every year, despite social media. Have you got your Mother a card yet? Don’t forget!
So for today’s card, I wanted to show you a Mother’s Day Card I made. I am a huge fan of the combination of Pink and Gray and I think the colours compliment each other beautifullly.
I love how simple this card is, with just a splash of elegance. This card has a white card base and Gray Granite mat and a white card front.
I cut out matching leaves in the Gray Granite for contrast. Who says leaves have to be green? The flowers were stamped on our recent Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper, Simply Marbleous and I just love how the swirls in the paper make some nice variations to the flowers.
My sentiment “Hello there” is from the Edens Garden stamp set, and I really like the simplicity of it. I added a strip of the Simply Marbleous paper to my card front and adhered the greeting to that. To finish it off, I added a few Gray matted dots to the card front.
For the inside of my card, I repeated the matting and stamped Happy Mother’s Day in the center. I love the scripting of this sentiment which is from the “Celebrating You” stamp set and it is fast becoming a new favourite due to the sixteen different stamps included in this set.
To bring the outside of the card, inside, I also stamped a couple of leaves in the bottom corner and glued another cut out flower to the inside.
I finished my card off by stamping the envelope with the same flower.
I was so happy to see that the Painted Poppies stamp set is carrying over to the new 2022-2023 annual Catalogue. It is one of my favourite stamp sets along with the Peaceful Moments Stamp and die sets shown below. The two sets compliment each other and I cannot tell you how often I have used the sentiments from the Peaceful Moments Stamp set.
Peaceful Poppies stamp and the Painted Labels dies are a beautiful set.
You can cut out leaves, flowers, borders and labels. How versatile is that?
The Peaceful Moments stamp set and the Poppy Moments dies coordinate beautifully with the stamp and dies above.
I just love all the sentiments this stamp set has to offer.
If you haven’t purchased this combination, I highly recommend it. Poppies can be used in a variety of colours to suite any occasion.
