My Card for Mummy

Hi all, been a while I know, time sure does go by fast these days.  On Sunday I was doing what most of the country were, spending time with my wonderful mum.  We trotted off to a garden centre for lunch which was soo busy, don't know why I thought it wouldn't be.  It was lovely seeing all the flowering plants and with the sunshine that eventually came out it really did start to feel like spring.  Just think next week it will be light till 7.30pm, woohoo!

So would you like to see the card I made for her, it was very much inspired by the lovely blog that is Pink Petticoat and uses her background papers.

The background paper is from the Pink Petticoat brocade range in silver which I overlaid in Photoshop with some text and then printed out on A4 white paper.  This was then cut to size and stitched to a kraft card using my machine.  I used white cotton but looking at it now I think I would go with a slightly darker shade of thread next time so it shows up a bit better.
A border for the envelope cut out using one of my new Anna Griffin punches which I must say really do punch well, much better and cleaner than my Martha Stewart border punches.
I chose these duck egg blue pearl domes to co-ordinate with her lounge.
Inside finished off with a printed insert.

I really liked the way this card turned out and it was so quick and easy to do. List of supplies used:

Kraft Square Card - Papermania
Brocade Paper Silver - Pink Petticoat
Stitching - own machine
Pearl Domes Blue - Create and Craft
Seam Binding Ribbon Cream - Create and Craft
Twine - B&Q 

Be back soon talking about cakes.  Keep well and hope you have plenty of sunshine where you are.

Love Lolo xx
