Mother's Day Card - Abstract Impressions


I can't believe that I haven't posted the Mother's Day card I made my mom last month. I used one of my favorite bundles in the catalog...Abstract Impressions Bundle. It includes the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set and the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies. I also used the new Stitched Labels Framelits Dies for the greeting label. The beautiful printed paper is from the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper Stack.

It's very hard to see in the pictures, but I covered the large, corner floral die-cut with a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. The subtle shimmer is SO pretty. Don't miss that pretty bow on the top right corner. I made it with the new Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon. LOVE this ribbon.


Dimensions:
  • Petal Pink:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" [card base]
  • Grapefruit Grove:  4" x 5-1/4" base layer
  • Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper [DSP]:  3-7/8" X 5-1/8"
  • Whisper White:  4-1/4" a 5-1/2" [corner floral die-cut], 3" x 3-3/4" [label], and 5-1/2" x 2-1/2" [leaves and flowers]
  • Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon:  10"

Instructions:
  1. Die-cut the large floral die from the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies out of the largest Whisper White piece. Brush the whole die-cut with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. Fold the Petal Pink piece in half [fold on the left] to form the card base. Attach the DSP piece to the middle of the Grapefruit Grove piece, and then attach the floral die-cut to the corner of DSP layer using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. Attach the whole thing to the center of the card front.
  2. Die-cut the largest label die from the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies out of the Whisper White label piece. Stamp the "Happy Mother's Day" stamp from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set onto the top, right corner of the label using the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad. Attach the label to the card [see picture for placement].
  3. Stamp the smallest rose-like stamp from the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set three times onto the Whisper White leaves and flowers piece using the Calypso Coral Classic Stampin' Pad. Ink the medium-sized rose-like stamp with the Calypso Coral ink pad, stamp onto a scrap piece of paper, and then stamp it on top of one of the small rose-like images. Do the same with the other two. Stamp the largest rose-like stamp on top of each stamped rose using the Petal Pink Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the double-leaf outline stamp five times on the same piece using the Shaded Spruce Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the double-leaf-like bold stamp inside each outline using the Soft Sea Foam Classic Stampin' Pad. It won't fit perfectly, but it looks great. Fussy-cut all of the flowers and leaves out using Paper Snips.
  4. Putting SNAIL Adhesive onto the back, center of two of the roses. Attach one to the left, center edge of the label, and the other one to the bottom, center edge of the label. Attach the third rose to the bottom, left corner of the label using Stampin' Dimensionals. Attach the leaves around the flowers, tucking the ends under the roses a bit [see picture for placement].
  5. Tie the tulle ribbon into a bow. Attach it to the upper, right corner of the label using a couple Mini Glue Dots. Trim the ribbon ends at an angle.

Use SNAIL Adhesive when attaching, unless stated otherwise.
