Mother`s Day Card

Morning J Rise and shine my dears. As mother day approaches we all start to worry up to make that special day as they are. Mothers are the lecturers of every future generation. Being a mother, a single parent as well to a 19 year old teen is no easy job. We just learn plenty from life and it’s the best university someone can learn, some real good lessons. Nico is not only a son, but also my biggest friend and also I am his best friend too. In this home we decide together, talk, argue over the silliest things, cry and laugh together, and most of all forgive each other. He is my best critic in every way J

Yes I do love being a mother in my busy life and ways. I just have the best son in the whole world !

Today’s project was a mother’s day card with my favourite subject sewing. For the background paper I choose a theme that has a connection with sewing by prima paper. On the background stamped with a calligraphy stamp and dragon fly. Then fixed the dress maker form, next to the printing of the sewing machine

Supplies List
  • A4 ivory card stock
  • Dictionary pages
  • Distress inks
  • Buttons 
  • Lace made from twine cord
  • Stamps by Visible Image
  • Prima paper - Life Time collection
  • Seam binding ribbon
  • Fimo clay bow

Once I had everything set on the left hand side layers on some lace made from twine cord, layered a bow with a mother of pearl button on top of the middle flower and decorated the rest. At the left side of the back ground cut dictionary papers in form of a leaf, distressed them and formed a flower. At the edges made an outline to give it more form and continued the rest of stamping to fill the page more up.

I dressed up the dummy in a ruffled skirt. For the skirt effect I cut out strips of paper, distressed them and rolled the edges and let the curls fall out freely.  Papers of various lengths were layered on each out so that when the paper curls out will look like ruffles.
