All My Love Mother’s Day Card

Hello Paper Crafters!! Today I have a card that I designed for a team meeting. Our papers are so beautiful and I am always looking for ways to feature both sides. I searched Pinterest for project inspiration and found this chevron fold that’s perfect for this kind of project. My All My Love Mother’s Day Card is a great way to feature both sides of our amazing DSP. This DSP is part of the All My Love Suite featured in the 2019 Occasions Catalog (pg. 4-6). At first glance you may believe this DSP is only for Valentine’s Day but it’s not. I think the floral patterns can be used for any type of card and there are a few patterns that could be used for masculine cards as well.

I am also including photos of the two other cards we made that were designed by my teammates, Jane and Jeannie.

This elegant card was designed by Jane. She used the Flowing Fountain Stamp Set and the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder and Wink of Stella. If you look closely at the white layer beneath the blue layer you can see the Subtle Embossing Folder texture. We applied the Wink of Stella to the water and the water drips. It makes the water sparkle.

Jeannie designed this really cute card with the So Hoppy Together stamp set that you can earn for FREE with a qualifying order of $50 before shipping and tax. The DSP fun fold gives a fun dimension to the card. We used watercolor pencils to color the images and we added Wink of Stella to the images for a fun, shimmery frog.

Tea Together Stamp Set

The sentiment for my card came from the Tea Together stamp set in the 2019 Occasions Catalog (pg. 49). This is a fun stamp set to play with. I have made two cards featuring this stamp set as well as the Tea Time Framelits that can be earned for FREE with a qualifying purchase of $100 before shipping and tax during Sale-a-bration.
