Special cards for special moms

Two more cards for birthday season in our family (continued in the next post)

CatchySketch_birthday_vellum

This special card is for my mom and the second one is for my mother-in-law. I wanted to make these cards look alike, but with personal touch in color scheme and a bit different layouts.

My mom loves warm summery colors, from warm yellow to cadmium red.

I used dotted vellum to make it look more feminine without overloading with details and I like how it turned out.

Rose is painted with alcohol inks on 100% polypropylene ‘paper’ and finished with white and black pens.

Sentiment is in Russian. I printed it on Inkssentials Gloss paper and cut out with a die-cut.

Materials used:

  • American Crafts textured cardstock – Tropicals
  • American Crafts smooth cardstock – Primaries
  • Neenah Creative Collection Vellum
  • Yupo – 100% polypropylene
  • Ranger Inkssentials  Gloss white paper
  • DCWV textured cardstock – Pastels (for tag)
  • Ranger Adirondack Alcohol Ink – Watermelon, Lettuce
  • Spellbinders die-cuts: Shapeabilities Fancy Framed Tags, Die D-Lites Corner Springs
  • Pens: Pigma Micron black and Uni-ball white

I will be linking this card to House of Cards May Challenge – Clear Papers; Seize The Birthday – “Anything Goes” Birthday challenge; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – “Anything Goes”; Time Out Challenge #57 ‘May All your weeds be wild flowers’.

    This is a stunning color combo for your mother with a touch of the feminine. Very creative of you to use a computer generated sentiment in Russian. Thanks so much for joining us at Seize the Birthday.
