I love making Mother's Day cards...anyone else? I know this can be a hard occasion to create for and a hard to for many to celebrate. My heart goes out to you, if you're in this category....I am as well :). Infertility has not been a kind and gentle disease for me, it takes its toll every, single day... but I have to step back and remind myself of all I have instead of thinking about what I'm missing. One day my arms will be full and my Sierra will have siblings to love and enjoy.
I created my card today using the new Best Mom stamp set from the Fluttering By Simon Says Stamp release. What a beautiful stamp set to create with, especially if you love to color! I stamped my image on watercolor cardstock using watermark ink and then heat embossed using white embossing powder. I then sponged on my ink colors and spritzed my cardstock with water to activate the colors. Love this effect.
Next, I added a bit of color using my Zig Clean color makers. I cut my floral image from the cardstock base it was stamped on and layered it over my card base. I added stamped flowers to my background and a sentiment across the bottom, from the Tweet Wishes stamp set.
Just want you to know I'm thinking of you sweet women in my life today, whether we've met before or not, whether you're my family or my friend, someone who feels forgotten or alone, someone fighting a silent battle each day...you are loved more than you'll ever know!
