inks: promarkers, memento (tuxedo black) tim holtz distress ink pads (worn lipstick)
cardstock: 6x4 card blank, craftwork cards digi cardstock.
punches: x-cut corner rounder
I inked my card blank and added a matt with 2 rounded corners. I stamped the LOTV image using the memento ink pad and coloured it using promarkers. I then added the sentiment in the top corner. for the inside of the card, I cut another matt to fit rounding 2 of the corners to match the front. I inked the edges using the same tim holtz ink pad, then stamped the sentiment in the centre. I think it makes a sweet and simple card for mothers day!!

i'm not a really a crafter, so it normally takes an age to make a super simple card. this time, I was determined to do something that was pretty for mum and showed a bit more of the effort that went into it !! I chose the paper and matched my inks and promarkers to it. the card blank was inked with the blue outside and the green inside. I then die cut the edge to reveal a strip of the green from the front. I die cut another strip inked in green to create a border for the paper. the topper was stamped with the flower and coloured using the promarkers, then die cut into a scalloped circle. I stamped 'mum' in the bottom corner. I also stamped 2 butterflies onto cardstock then used the punch to cut them out. one butterfly was added to the front on a foam pad. the other butterfly was stuck inside along with the sentiments, one of which was stamped onto card and die cut into a banner shape, the other was stamped directly onto the card. it still took quite a while to do the card but i'm pretty pleased with it !!
