Good Morning! Today is the day for the Monthly Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop and our theme for the month is ‘For the Girls/Ladies”. So my card uses the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress bundle to create a girly-girl Mother’s Day card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I embossed a small panel of Pear Pizzazz card stock with the Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the bottom of a panel of floral Best Dressed designer series paper with multipurpose liquid glue. Then I adhered the panel to a Daffodil Delight card base with multipurpose liquid glue. I stamped the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress in Old Olive ink on a strip of Whisper White and cut it out with the die from the Ornate Frames Dies. I cut the coordinating fancy background frame from Blackberry Bliss card stock and adhered the label on top. I adhered the layered label to the bottom of the card with multipurpose liquid glue and finished it with a Lovely Lipstick enamel dot.
I used the largest stitched circle die from the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut a circle in the dotted Best Dressed designer series paper. I adhered this to a Blackberry Bliss scalloped circle cut from the Layering Circles Dies and then to the card base with dimensionals. I stamped each of the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and cut them out with the coordinating die from the All Dressed Up Dies. I colored them with Lovely Lipstick, Light Mossy Meadow and Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends and adhered them to the dotted circle with multipurpose liquid glue.
I stamped two shoes, the perfume bottle and the lipstick from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black in on Whisper White and cut them out with the dies from the All Dressed Up Dies. I colored the shoes with Light Purple Posey, Light Petal Pink and Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends and glued them together. I colored the lipstick with Light Basic Black, Light and Dark Smoky Slate and Light and Dark Lively Lipstick Stampin’ Blends. I colored the perfume bottle with Light Pretty Peacock, Light So Saffron and Light Pool Party Stampin Blends. While coloring with the Stampin’ Blends, I used the color lifter to add highlights. I adhered the layered shoes, perfume bottle and lipstick to the circle with dimensionals. I added a Daffodil Delight ruched ribbon bow with a glue dot to finish the card front.
For the inside of the card, I trimmed a strip of the floral Best Dressed designer series paper to the bottom of a Whisper White panel and adhered it to the inside of the card. I made another flower die cut like the ones on the front and adhered it to the corner.
In retrospect, I think today’s card is a little over the top. Do you know anyone who owns a pair of lavender heels? But I also think we should go over the top for our moms, especially on Mother’s Day. So I’ll pick another time to show restraint.
