Secret Garden Mother's Day card

Hello Crafteteers!

I would like to share a card I made for my mother-in-law.  She is an avid gardener so Graphic 45's Secret Garden paper had to be used!

The layout was from a sketch on Will Stamp for Wine (  I realized after I assembled the front of the card that I forgot to emboss the blue vellum paper.  It was all taped down so I could not disassemble.  Perhaps you can imagine how great the embossed vellum would look.  :)

Dies used on the front were Couture Creations Alcyone Doily die, Spellbinders Eyelet Circles, and Spellbinders Standard Circles LG.  The stamp is from the JustRite set Fancy Frames.  Tim Holtz's Tattered Rose was used for stamping and distressing.  K & Company button from Hannah Stitched was applied to the ivory bow. The ivory lace is from Recollections Lace on a Roll.


The inside used more Secret Garden paper.  An ivory paper lace border was punched using Martha Stewart edging.  The sentiment (so lovely!!) is from Quietfire Design: Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while but their hearts forever.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
