Happy Mother's Day by Jenny Alia


Hi, Happy Mother's Day!  It's Jenny here with you sharing a card.  I envisioned this card as a CAS (clean and simple) design with just the Japanese Garden Lace Oval and butterflies.  Sometimes the reality comes out very differently and I thought the card needed more.  I added a piece of designer card stock cut with the A2 Rectangular Scalloped Frames behind the oval and then built the card.  The butterflies were colored with distress ink and a cosmetic wedge sponge.


I glued the Happy Mother's Day to the center, positioned the butterflies and then glued the centers down, letting the wings fly freely.  White card stock was used to make the Sweet Christine flowers in the corner and I added pink flowers that were made with the Embellishments #3 die.  The leaves are from the Ivy Strip.  They were cut out of the background paper and then colored with some brown distress ink.  I wanted them darker than the background for contrast but I wanted to add some more interest by using patterned card stock.
