Happy Mother's Day Card

Hi Everyone,

Happy Mother's Day to all the mums out there.  Hope you've been pampered today.  I visited my Mam this afternoon with a handmade card so I thought I would share it with you tonight.  Warning - glitter has been used in the making of this card!!

I started with a handmade Centura Pearl cardblank scored on my Ultimate Pro.  I added a layer of plain white card to start my layers.  My main background was embossed with a Couture Creations embossing folder called Seedless Nouveau.  I extended the pattern to fit the size of my card.  The purple came from Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Dusty Concord.  

The decorative circles were created using a JustRite die designed by Becca Feeken.  She is one amazingly talented lady.  Check out her blog here.  I cut the Lacy Tiers die with the Spellbinders Standard Circles Large on double sided sticky sheet attached to white card.  Once cut, I covered in Amethyst Shimmer Diamond Sparkles glitter.  It is super fine and really sparkly and was also in the sale!  Bargain!

My sentiment is from JustRite too and I used a Spellbinders Ribbon Banners LG die to cut it out.  The stamp set is called Family Sentiments.  I attached the centre die and banner with foam pads.  Finally I finished off with four aurora borealis gems for the corners.

Happy crafting,
Rachel x
