Just in time for Mother’s Day (Morsdag), I made this card for my son Erik. He is turning eight this summer, and even though, traditionally, the focus lies on the mother, for us it us family. I want my son to know how much I love him and how thankful and proud I am to be his mother. Also, the stamped image kind of looks like us… hehe
THE IDEA BEHIND IT
I am trying out different sty les to challenge myself, so this one is kept CAS (i.e. Cl
ean and Simple). Yes yes, most people would think those cards to be the easiest ones, however, when you have a stack of patterened paper and a big stash of stamps, dies and stamp pads etc., keeping a card clean and simple can be a little hard some times… 😉
For the colouring I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink markers on smooth watercolour paper. They are quite easy to work with and you can find them in a rather large selection of colors.
I Love Love LOVE dimension and glimmer, so I used Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents on the hearts and popped them up with dimensionals. The stamped image itself is fussy cut and popped up as well. The sentiment is cut with ABC’s from Taylored Expressions.
