Okay, this was a last minute card and it 's still waiting for it's insert which needs to be done as soon as I have finished writing up this post. So I'll make this a quick one.
I don't usually use ribbon flowers for my cards but as I left it so late to make this card I had to cheat a little.
I chose to do a vintage style Mother's day card for my Mother in Law, she is 93 years old, so I'd say she is vintage too.
I know she won't mind me saying that, she has an amazing sense of humour. Probably due to raising my husband, who is very much the comic.
I love making cards for her, she appreciates them and work that has gone into them so much. It makes it all worth while. I do hope she likes this one.
I used the Spellbinder Envelope corner die to cut two corners in cream card and glued them onto a cream card square, then I lightly sponged over the entire background using soft suede ink from Stampin' up .
The sentiment is from the stamp set "Occasional Greetings" I think.
It's a retired stamp set but it still comes in very handy.
I die cut the circles for the sentiment/ layers and cut the butterflies, inked the edges with soft suede ink and a sponge, stamped the greeting and assembled all the layers.
Lastly I added the flower and butterfly.
