Happy National Scrapbooking Day! Today's post is the card I made for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day. If you've been following my blog for long, you've seen this color combo before. She loves red, black and white. I usually throw a little blue or something in with it.
I used last week's sketch over at Mojo Monday (sketch no. 186). I didn't get the card finished in time to add it to the challenge, but it was still fun.
Here is the sketch. Of course I chose the square card.
Here are the details:
Size: 5 1/4" x 5 1/4"
Patterned paper: K and Co. and unknown
Daisy border: Martha Stewart border punch
White ribbon bow with heart: I bought these in a little package at AC Moore. I do not remember the manufacturer, but they were in the ribbon section. I wrapped white satin ribbon around the black strip on the card and then added this little ribbon bow on top.
Pearls: Queen & Co.
Embossing on black strip: Cuttlebug folder
Blue label and black scalloped circle: Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge
Circle with sentiment: Nestabilities circle die
Sentiment and flower: Clipart found on the internet, copied into Word and then I added the words (I added a touch of yellow Stickles to the center of the flower)
Blue flower: Retro Flower Paper Shapers punch
Inside sentiment: "Is a gift from above. Happy Mother's Day. We love you."
