Today I am showing the mothers day card I have made for my Mum. Now she looks at my blog so just in case she see's this I have left the gift (handmade again) is not shown until Sunday maybe a sneak peek tomorrow.
This card was made to showcase the rose which I made using the petals cut with the peony die form yesterdays card and box tutorial. I used the same petals however I put them together differently. If you would like a tutorial on making the rose just let me know and I will see what Wendy (Magic Hands) and I can do!
The centre panel of the card is made with Spellbinders A2 filigree delight however the one thing that sometimes frustrates me on this die is that it cuts a beautiful filigree it also cuts the whole shape out. Now I have always wondered what it would look like if the shape didn't cut out. Therefore I set myself the challenge of working out how to do this.
As you can, hopefully, see from the card I managed to work it out, the centre section is cut and embossed however only the filigree is cut in the centre panel of an A5 piece of card. I'll share how to do this in a couple of weeks as I have an idea for this technique for Easter so patience guys (although I am sure you can all work out how to do this.
After this I simply cut a panel out of each layer, there are 6!, so that the rose fits and layered these up using foam tape.
The sentiment, what else but Happy Mothers Day, is on a hand-cut banner which I shaped and mounted in the aperture behind the rose and finishing in the front.
I hope my mum, and you guys, like it!
