Happy Wednesday, Crafty Friends!
Today I have a Mother’s Day card to share that I made for the Therm O Web blog. This card features a bit of stamping, a bit of trendy Deco Foil, and a quick and easy inlay die cut technique using iCraft adhesive tape.
My mom loves flowers, as most mother’s do. You should see her gorgeous yard. When I picture her house, I almost always envision the front courtyard. My dad built a beautiful wooden arbor there, and wisteria was planted at the base of the poles. Fast forward many years later, and now that wisteria has filled the entire front patio. And when it’s in bloom, those amazing blossoms hang down from the canopy like some magical fairy wonderland.
My bedroom at home looks out over the courtyard. And last time we visited, the wisteria was in bloom. So many happy memories. I’m sure it will come as no surprise that these rich colors of deep lilac purple and green, well… they make me think of home. And although these flowers aren’t wisteria, I think they will do. 😀
These pretty flowers are from Stampin’Up’s Bloom with Hope set. I stamped the images in black ink, doing a bit of masking to add the greenery around the flowers. And then colored them all with Copic markers. I die cut the panel with My Creative Time’s Stitched Square dies, and then created a matching frame from the dies, too. The outer frame has been embellished with Therm O Web Deco Foil in the gorgeous new Lilac color. Inlay die cutting keeps the framework seamless.
I added some pretty BasicGrey patterned paper, and a button from the new 28 Lilac Lane collection. A stenciled background, and a quick sentiment strip finish the design. You may notice I did something a little different with the card base, too. I’ve got the full tutorial, including details on the foiled frame and inlay die cutting, up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll be back a day early tomorrow for the special Buttons Galore & More 28 Lilac Lane Blog Hop. Hope to see you all then!
