Happy Mother's Day!

 Hello dear friends and welcome back.  Today, I would like to wish all you a very Blessed Mother's Day! I would also like to take this opportunity to share the card I made for my mom ...

I used Honey Bee Stamps' Lovely Layers - Roses die set to create the rose. I cut the layers in different shades of cardstock and added a little shading using blending brushes.  The faux twine was created by using the Spellbinders Sealed Twine die.
Next, I got out my seal wax goodies and created the wax heart embellishment.

Although the leaves also come with different layers, I just used the largest layer and added a little shading to them.  On the largest leaf, however, I used two layers so it wouldn't look so flat.

I added Nuvo Crystal - Morning Dew, drops to give the illusion of dew drops. I must admit that I love the way they came out 😀

All the beautiful layers add a lot of dimension. I just glued the centers together and curled the edges a little. There was no need for foam squares inbetween each layer.

The sentiment was computer generated. The little rose bud is part of the Lovely Layers - Roses die set.

It is small but has beautiful dimension too, as I used all the layers for it. I thought that a little bow, from the Marianne Design Bows Punch die, was the perfect finishing touch. 

I love that this rose is on the larger side.  This is a 6.5" x 5" card, and as you can see the rose fills up the front of the card pretty nicely. It fits in a regular A7 envelope and, even though it has lots of layers, it is just about a 1/4" thick so no need for extra postage.

Well, friends this is it for today.  Enjoy the rest of your Mother's Day celebrations. For all the moms who are not having a joyful day today, know that you are in my thoughts and that I've said a prayer for you.

God Bless,
