Love Ya Mom! Botanical Mother's Day

Hello everyone! It's Janet here with a delicate botanical mother's day card. I like the mix of hard black and white with all the soft pastels that frame the Mom tag sentiment. Perhaps I should have chosen a slightly more muted yellow ribbon but in person it isn't as bright as the photo shows here.

Speaking of Motherś Day, 22 new dies have just been released to celebrate the occasion. The dies are currently on sale so go check them out and take advantage of the discount. The link can be found HERE.

My flowers and greenery are all from the new Botanical Garden 1 die that is part of the Llamas and Botanicals release. Rather than color the flowers with markers, I used white panels that I first covered in blended distressed oxide inks, splattered with water to create additional texture, and then sprayed with gold glimmer spray. These panels of color created a really special array of flowers for the card. I raised the card front with the wide black frame up on foam tape to create a window which was a perfect base to arrange all the individual flower die cuts. I used the versatile Mail Tag die to use as the sentiment to tell Mom just how much she's loved.

The video shows how I created the panels, how the individual flowers go together and how I created the card front with the framed and raised front panel. You can watch the video by clicking HERE or clicking on the thumbnail below.

Thanks for spending some time with us here today. See you again soon!
