Elegant Mother's Day card with Crackerbox & Suzy stamps


Hello crafty friends,

If you are looking for a simple idea for a Mother's Day card, but easily adapted to many occasions by choice of sentiment, I have just the thing for you.  The beautiful and very detailed floral stamp makes it just about foolproof to quickly make an elegant card (especially if you have no time or inclination to do coloring)

I chose a very pale lilac shade of cardstock to be the background color for silver heat embossed flowers.  After stamping the flowers all over the panel in embossing ink, I added silver embossing powder and heat set.  I used a die to create a shaped edge with stitching and scalloped edges, then layered it onto a piece of the same color cardstock.

I die cut the words for the sentiment from silver mirror cardstock and glued them on the panel.  The lilac panel was layered on top of a very pale gray cardstock.

Simple, right?
