Love You Mom

Here is another card for mother's day but it is for my mother-in-law this time. I have been following Silhouette Plus forum last couple of days and I heard that there was going to be a sales in Sil store. I went over there and added this bird to my cart. I didn't want to use it as it and changed it into a sketched bird. I turned out nice but using a black pen for Cameo was a mistake, I could choose a lighter color or a colored pencil. After I sketched that little guy, I cut carefully around it. Branch came from another shape and cut out that part of it and sketched it with brown color pencil. I liked the way it turned out, it looks softer. I saw the sentiment on the Sil Blog and had to have it because I was looking for something similar and that was perfect. Now I need to post the card and hope she likes it. TFL.

Mother's Day Card

I wanted to create a card for my mom this year. I wanted this card to be special but didn't have any idea what I wanted to do. Crafting sites were full of great cards with lots of materials nicely put together. I remembered that I had butterflies from LD's Oh Flutter collection. Re-sized the butterfly in Cameo and cut in different colors. I knew I wanted to emboss the card and used the Lifestyle Craft's Zig Zag folder. Texture Boutique was having hard time embossing nicely for some reason and that bothered me. I embossed in two different direction to make an X marked emboss. Patterned paper was adhered to the embossed cardstock. Then I created a label with sentiment on it with Cameo. That turned out nice and attached with pop up adhesive to give dimension. Lastly, butterflies adhered with glue dots and jewels added on it. I am really happy with the end result.
