Wishing you......

Happy Friday!

Before I start cleaning and getting the kids outside..(it's going to be 81 degrees here in Wisconsin!)...I wanted to share a card with you.

I created this card for my daughter-in-law for Mother's Day.  

The flowers were stamped on Canson watercolor paper and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Using distress inks, the flowers, stems, and background were water colored.  

Using the sketch from MFT, I cut the panel and used MFT's Pierced Rectangle Stax to cut a portion of the image to pop up. 

 I added a layer of craft foam to keep it solid for mailing.  

The sentiment banner was cut using MFT's Blueprints 21 and stamped with a portion of a sentiment from the Harvest Mouse stamp set.  

The panel was adhered to a piece of patterned paper, cut with the Blueprints 21, then adhered to a cream card base.  

To finish of the card, I added some sparking clear sequins and clear Spectrum Noir glitter brush pen to the flowers.  


  1. Love your card, especially the stitching. How did you do that? Please reply with specific product and technique. I bought Stitched Rectangle Frames dies and it cut out the frame which I didn't want. Help!!

    1. Thank you for kind comment. The rectangle was cut directly from my colored panel with an MFT die from the Rectangle Stax set.
