PLAYING WITH SOME NEW TOYS!
I wanted to make a Mother's Day card for my boyfriend's Mom and decided it would be fun to play with a few new toys. A while back I won this great October Afternoon stamp set from Outlaw Women Scrapbook Emporium that had some pretty doilies. I started with a green card base and I stamped the doilies all over in black Archival ink. Then I took my new Sizzix die - Tim Holtz Alterations Tattered Flowers and another Sizzix flower die and I cut some flowers out of old book pages. I colored them with Distress Stains Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. I used vintage buttons for the centers. I added a bunch of small Prima flowers and the front was done. For the inside I stamped the sentiment Happy Mother's Day on white cardstock, colored it with Antique Linen Distress Stain, distressed the edges and added some Walnut Stain Distress ink on the edges. A small Prima flower inside and finished!
