A Happy Mother (Verve April Project Parade)...


To view an image up-close, please click on the photo.

For the Verve Project Parade in April, we were asked to create something to celebrate a woman in our lives. I made a Mother's Day Card for my mom-in-law, Susan, who has been like a real mother to me ever since I met my husband 15 years ago. She is also the one who got me hooked on stamping and card-making, so I simply had to make her a special card. For this one, I used my Big Shot and Nestabilities to create a window card that is embellished both inside and out. The "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment was created with the Emboss Resist technique, which kept it soft and subtle.
