Happy Birthday mom!

Happy Monday! I hope you had a good weekend. Yesterday was my mom's 74th birthday. Unfortunately we weren't able to spend time with her, as they live about four hours north of us and the wintry weather up there is NOT conducive to quick visits. I thought I would share with you the card I made in her honour...

Once again I pulled out my new Falling In Love DSP...I just can't get enough of that stuff! I created the frame using both the Stitched Shapes and Layering Squares framelits. I die-cut the stitched Very Vanilla square first and then centred a smaller square fie from the Layering Squares and ran it through again. Easy-peasy frame. The gorgeous copper filigree is cut from copper foil sheets using the new So Detailed Thinlits...LOVE these! I matted the entire frame with a scalloped copper square, which I also die-cut using the Layering Squares framelits. The sentiment is from the Circle of Spring stamp set and is heat embossed in copper. I added a little punched butterfly in the same DSP, punched with the Bitty Butterfly punch.

The background panel is a piece of Very Vanilla card stock which I embossed using the Elegant Dots TIEF. I mounted it on a Crumb Cake card stock base. The pretty coppery strip behind my frame is a piece of DSP from the Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP pack. I've been hoarding saving it for just the right project and this certainly is it! I love the way it works with the copper die-cut! I added a touch of girlie with one of the new Lace Doilies, some copper metallic thread and a few pearls.

On the inside I added another Very Vanilla card stock panel on which I stamped a sentiment from the Cottage Greetings stamp set and added another punched butterfy.

I actually loved this project so much that I decided to include it in my All About Birthdays card buffet this week. If you are local to Cambridge and would like to join us check out my Upcoming Events tab at the top of this page for information.

Have a great week!
