Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there. Hope you are having a wonderful day.
I wanted to share a card that I made with this cute image from Elizabeth Bell for SCACD stamp company called Emma. She is so sweet. You can get her here at the I Brake For Stamps Store. Don't forget to use my code and get a 10% discount!! (SAVE10TRICIA)
I colored her with copics. The TJ newsletter CD called Fancy Folds & Motion CD has a wonderful card folding called Double Gatefold. This is such an easy technique with such beautiful and stunning results.
I added 2 additional techniques as well. One is out of the nestie box, this is great technique that I use all the time. The third technique is the stacked nesties technique from the October 2011 newsletter. This is another favorite of mine, who am I kidding most of them are my favorites ;)
I added a bit of Crystal Effects to her shirt to give it a little more dimension. I learned how to do the hardwood floors from my Color Me Creative class with Mindy Baxter called Magnolia 3 - This and That. I have been practicing my backgrounds and scenes along with that class.
Anywho, I just love the way this card came out. I got some new background papers from Gina K Designs called "Sunshiny Day". They are 6x6 papers that I got free with my order...yippee!!! They coordinate perfectly with their Sunshiny Day cardstock which I also used. I love papers that match.
Here is ashot of the inside. I used a new stamp set I got free with 3 from Gina K Designs called One in A Million for the sentiment. They also have a new lace stamp set that is fabulous called Lacy Borders.
This is an up close of Emma.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
This was such a fun card to make and I really can't wait to do some more. So hopefully you enjoyed my card and I really wish all of you a very best Mother's Day!
