I am usually so very terribly bad at saving everything until the last minute, especially with cards that I have to make for specific people. I want it to become more than it just is - a card. However, every great once in a while I get an idea and I stick to it and I finish it way before the last second. The gift that goes with it is another story...
So, here's the card I made for mother's day one whole week early!
It's hard to see but the sentiment is embossed with Antiquities Antique Gold distress powder and looks so very classy. I love that gold is trending right now. I usually catch myself using silver on every project, so this makes me stretch a bit!
The only other step to altering the pieces in my kit was to punch the border under the piece of lace which I did with a Martha Stewart border punch. I then used my paper distresser to smooth the edges after punches to better mirror the lace. Then I added Victorian Velvet ink to the bottom and around the base piece of the card. I then finished the card by adhering all the pieces using adhesive, some clever positioning and some pop dots on the smaller flower to make it contrast a bit and not get lost next to the bigger flowers.
I was really happy with how this turned out and am only sad because I don't have a challenge to submit it to!
