Happy Mother's Day

This is the card I have made for my Mother in Law as today is Mother’s Day in the UK.
I was a bit close to the wire as I finished it this morning !

I started with a Sizzix Framelits die cut Blossom Frames. 

This is what it looks like when you have cut it. I bought it in the sale on the Sizzix site as I thought would look pretty if it was layered and decorated with a bit of bling.

I cut it from strong card and used my Promarkers and Flexmarkers to colour them in. If I am being honest I totally underestimated how long it would take to colour and create the different layers.

I added Stickles glue to some flowers, gems, pears and the big flower centres are from a decorative trim that was in the bridal section of the Range.

The sentiment is Female Occasions Sizzix Thinlits die set. The leaves are from a Funky Floral #2 set and the butterfly is a 3 part die from the Die and stamp combo Let’s Celebrate. I love how ornate it is and it cut perfectly.

The card layout was inspired by the current sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday which I rotated to fit the oval frame.

Both the papers are handmade mulberry paper which have got floral inclusions in them which was inspired by a challenge at Outlawz group. I am sure there are many crafters who have had some in our stash for years and not used it for a long while….

Materials Used in this Project are as follows:- 
Card size – 8 x 8”
Paper – Handmade Mulberry paper
Sentiment – Female Occasions die set Sizzix
Tools Promarkers & Flexmarkers, Sizzlits Let’s Celebrate dies, Sizzix Framelits Blossom Frame, Funky Floral #2
