Just Add Ink #116: Just Add Mother's Day


Our challenge at Just Add Ink this week is to celebrate all the wonderful mothers out there by making a Mother's Day Card.  I'm lucky enough to have both a fantastic mother and mother-in-law.  Hmmm, I wonder which one will get this card?

I used some of the Attic Boutique DSP from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue.  I fussy cut some of the flowers from the DSP and layered them over the same part of a second sheet of the DSP.  I also tried my hand at making a crinkly bow out of seam binding.  I loved it, but Rob thought I'd tied a dead flower to the card!  Men!  What would they know about crinkly seam binding bows? lol

Here's a side on shot showing the layering of the flowers.

I also fussy cut some extra flowers to adhere to the inside.  Such a pretty effect.

I can't wait to see your beautiful Mother's Day cards entered into our Just Add Mother's Day Challenge.

DSP/Cardstock: Attic Boutique DSP, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Whisper White
