Mom You are the Best!

Mother’s Day will be here soon. It is time to remember your Mom and all the things that she did for you. Mothers are the greatest!

I love this card because I was able to use one of my background stamps that I bought on impulse. This background stamp has a strong graphic pattern consisting of bold groups of line at different angles that appear to cross each other. Therefore, you would not normally use it for a card to your mother. However, I think the pattern works with the bold “MOM” sentiment die and the graphical die-cut leaves.

Hope you have a great day and remember Mom IS the best!

Supplies used in making this project:

  • Stamps:
    • Simon Says Stamp: Stripe Jumble Background stamp (6”x6” red rubber)
    • Hero Arts Stamp & Cut: Thanks set (sentiment: “you are the best”)
  • Dies:
    • My Favorite Things Die-namics: Mom die
    • Papertrey Ink: Fancy Foliage die set
  • Inks:
    • Catherine Pooler Inks: Party Dress (used for graphic stamp pattern)
    • Versamark ink (used for heat embossed sentiment strip)
  • Cardstock:
    • Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock (used for stamping the background pattern and making the card base)
    • Simon Says Stamp: Glitter cardstock in Magenta (used for the die-cut ‘MOM’ and the top layer of the leaf foliage)
    • Papertrey Ink: Raspberry Fizz (used to create the bottom 3 layers of the leaf foliage)
    • Papertey Ink: True Black (used for the skinny sentiment ‘you are the best’)
  • Other:
    • Hero Arts: White embossing powder

Notes:

  • The card is an A2-sized card (4.25” x 5.5”) with a horizontal orientation and fold along the top.
  • The die-cut foliage (leaves) were triple-stacked using Raspberry Fizz cardstock. The magenta glitter cardstock was used as the top layer for a total of four layers.
  • Fun foam was used on the back of the ‘MOM’ sentiment to give it added dimension.
  • The jumble background pattern was stamped onto a full 6”x6” piece of cardstock and a strip of it cut down for the card.
  • The cardstock used for the mat of the jumble-patterned strip is Raspberry Fizz.

  1. You are right, the graphic background works beautifully with the leaves – they are made for each other! Your choice of color and the glitter cardstock give the card a feminine touch. Great Mother’s Day card!
