Stampin'Up Mother's Day Card......

Saturday was our monthly Bromsgrove Crop, each month I do a card class and as it's Mother's Day in the U.K. on Sunday, I did a Mother's Day card for the ladies.

Firstly, I added the pattern paper to the front of my card, using a border punch on the narrower paper, I love the new papers from Stampin'Up, there are some of my favourite colour combo's in this pack.

I stamped one of the 'Vintage Verse' sentiment onto the tag, this stamp set is one of the free ones when you spend £45 from the SU catalogue but only available until 22nd March.

On the bottom of the tag, I added some SU First Edition text paper and cut out the chevrons from one of the  Tea for Two papers. If you like the chevron and hexagon craze at the moment, you will love this paper pack.

I then layered up the lace, a punched leaf, pins and a fabric flower from the new SU Flower Trim, you get approximately 2 yards of flowers on strips of tulle, it's very pretty.

I made the bow by getting two different lengths of ribbon, putting a glue dot on the one end and joining them to form a circle. Then layering the small circle onto the larger one, take your button, threaded with linen thread, tie around and pull tight.

The ladies who didn't want to make a Mother's Day card used a Happy Birthday sentiment instead, the card is perfect for both occasions, everyone seemed very happy with their card. Everything I used is from Stampin'Up except the pins, which I just bought from an haberdashery shop.

Stamps-  Vintage Verses,  Something to Celebrate.
Papers- Tea for Two, First Edition.
Pretties-  Lace trim,  Flower Trim, Baja Breeze Seam Binding,  Vintage Faceted Button,  Linen Thread.
Punches- Bird Builder (for the leaf), Scallop Trim Border.

Thank you for stopping by, have a great week!!!!
