Hello hello crafty friends. Thanks so much for coming back to another tutorial. Today I will be sharing a colorful and fun Mother’s Day card. I was always that kid growing up that always made light of stuff for my mom on Mother’s Day. Wanted her to know how lucky she was to have me..lol. I’m telling you, the wit was real with me growing up. Anyways lets get started.
I started off with a A2 size panel (SSS 120lb cardstock) because I love the way my distress inks/oxides go on super smoothly. It doesn’t leave the rings when I use my distress ink sponges and I really love that. I used the brushes BUT I’m one that has to have one tool per color (I’m a mess) Besides, I like to go back and forth with ink blending tools. The colors I used are Wilted Violet, Tumbled Glass (currently out of stock but keep checking back), Cracked Pistachio and finally Squeezed Lemonade distress oxide inks.
Once everything was blended, I let my panel dry for a bit to make sure its ready to be embossed. In the meantime, I got a piece of black cardstock and treated it with my anti static tool and prep’d it for heat embossing. I used Brutus Monroe’s Alabaster White embossing powder and heat set my sentiment from CZ Design Good Job Mama stamp set and I used the coordinating die to cut it out. I LOVE LOVE LOVE CZ’s sentiments. The clean lines and and the fact that I can cut them out…YES!
Now that my panel is completely dried, I used my anti static tool and prep’d it for heat embossing. I inked up my SSS Sketchy Lines background stamp with embossing ink and used their clear embossing powder and heat set it. I trimmed down my panel to get that clean border that I love so much!
I adhered my panel to SSS Fog Cardstock (A2 size) and I added some foam tape to the back of my sentiments and finished off my card with some embellishments from Little Lucy. That’s it! A bright and fun Mother’s Day card. Thanks so much for stopping by. The products I used to make my card are listed below. All you have to do is click on the image and go shopping! See you next time.
