Don't know about you, but I keep thinking these homebound, chilly days are prime card-making opportunities. But, the cold seems to be zapping most of my mojo.
Fortunately, mojo returned for a few hours yesterday. So, I managed to make a few Mother's Day cards to break in my new SU postcard background stamp. Think these little cards turned out pretty well.
Even though our marching orders are to make more general mom cards, I couldn't resist using this garage-sale find, retired SU sentiment on a few postcard cards. The next batches will be "Love You, Mom" cards -- I promise! :)
A few card-making details:
- The sentiment is from a retired set (2000) and is heat embossed using clear powder.
- The various botanicals were stamped in first, second, third generations -- with the top layer being heat embossed.
- In addition, the "Place Stamp Here" rectangle was also stamped on a second paper, then cut-out and attached to the background stamp.
- Finally, the postcard is stamped on the reverse side of the cottage collection paper. Picked this up at Big Lots because the reverse side neutral was so nice. :)
Think that's it for this card. As always, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
