Hello and Happy Sunday afternoon,
I was asked by a friend to make some Mother's Day cards for both her mom and her MIL because she didn't know if she would be able to shop for them with the current social distancing mandates. I ended up making several actually. After she and her husband pick, I'll use the others for my mom and and maybe send a few to friends.
The last few I made today using the new Paper Players Challenge. It's Clean and Simple week. Anne Marie is our hostess and she has added Sparkle as a theme.
Me being me, I immediately thought of champagne (maybe that's TMI, LOL) and I did make a champagne themed card. I also thought of a super cute Concord & 9th set that I have that fit this theme perfectly too. So, I made two more cards. Here we go.
This is a side fold card. I die cut a circle in the center and lined it with a Die-namics scalloped circle border die cut from pink glitter paper. The champagne coupes are stamped on the inside with Memento black ink. I colored them with Copics and brushed on some Wink of Stella. There are 5 small clear rhinestones glued on some of the bubbles for added sparkle.
The outside sentiment is heat embossed with white EP on black card stock. The inside says Happy Mothers' Day. I did use a second layer here because I wanted to color the coupes with the Copics and they tend to bleed through one layer cards.
Here are the other two cards using the Concord & 9th set.
The backgrounds are stamped using the C&9th Gem Turnabout set. For the card with the sentiment in the center, I placed a circle mask in the center of the card before stamping with the turnabout stamp. The gem die comes with the set and I cut it from pink, white and silver glitter papers. One is used in the center of the left card above, and another for the inside of the first card, seen here.
The inside of card #2.
I'm off to deliver the MD cards to my friends (at 6 ft with masks on). Have a nice evening and thanks for looking in,
