Hello everyone! I told you the other day I would have one more very special Pansy project for you today, on Mother's Day! This is the card I made for my mom this year! My mother loves to display her cards. She leaves them sitting out for weeks and then once she puts them away, she brings them back out the next year on that holiday. If I were to go home right now, she would have favorite mother's day cards displayed on every flat surface in the house, some dating back to when we were kids.
So, this year, I thought I would give her one that was easy to display. I created this large (it measures 5.5 x 7" when closed) easel card which stands on it's own. It's loaded down with the butterfly punch pansies (ok, I know, I really piled them on). I was going for the look of one of those antique victorian cards.
I used sentiments from Well Scripted and All Holidays. The ribbon is 5/8" Pretty in Pink Satin. I used the Scallop Trim Corner and Border Punches along with the Big Shot and the Scallop Oval Die and Tiny Leaves Sizzlet. Cardstock colors are Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plumb Whisper White and Pink Pirouette. I even created a Scallop Trim Border around the oval, using the Crimper Tool. The pansies are attached with Stampin' Dimensionals. What fun! I wish I could have been there to see my mom's face when she opened her special card! But one thing is for sure. When I go to visit my folks in a few weeks, I know this card will still be on display!
Thanks for stopping by today everyone and wishing a Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there!
