Does your mom like darker colors instead of soft pastel colors? My Momma loves her darker colors and anything that sparkles. Today I’m sharing a different color pallet for a Mother’s Day card. They don’t all have to be flowery or bright colors to be the perfect card for your mom.
This is a simple slimline card measuring 3 2/4″ wide by 8 1/2″ tall. The background is Basis Navy cardstock.
First, I die cut the large background image from DSC Dolphin Gray cardstock . It’s from the March Large Die of the Month from Spellbinders. This die cutting plate is long so to make sure I get a clean cut all the way along the image, I cut it in two different runs through my Spellbinders Platinum 6 Die Cutting Machine.
Next, I die cut three of the flowers. The flowers are layered so the depth is so pretty. I used PopTone Tangy Orange, Stardream Metallic Coral, and CCS Gold Glitter Cardstock. This is the kind of glitter cardstock that the glitter doesn’t fall off.
I layered the flowers together and adhered each of them in the place on the gray background. My favorite liquid adhesive is Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.
I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from an older Altenew stamp set. It’s my favorite sentiment and I love to remind Momma I wouldn’t be me without her. I layered the sentiment on the same gold glitter cardstock so it peeked from the top and bottom but not the sides.
Finally, to bring the entire card together I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in Metallic Carmel Cream. It matches the Metallic Coral cardstock perfectly! Quick tip: warm you Nuvo Drop under your leg before you use them and they will level off without peaks easier.
Thank you for joining us today and I hope you my card inspires a card that’s a little different. Don’t forget to head over to the CutCardStock Shop and check out the selection of amazing glitter papers.
