A Happy Mother’s Day

So, for whatever reason, my well worn, well loved annual catalog always seems to fall open to page 176.  I know you are dying to go look so, go, look, I’ll wait…..

Ok, now you have seen page 176.  Ever since I first saw the card on page 176 I’ve wanted to make it.  I liked the clean lines with the single flower done in ribbon.  I never made it though I think because I was daunted by the flower made from ribbon.  Then I realized that I was being too narrow and not nearly creative enough.  I have other flowers that would work. So here’s my card.


1. So many options. I’ve made several versions of this card this year, for all the mother’s I want to honor.  Each of them, the cards – and the mothers, are different.  One has a crisp cantaloupe flower with a piece of crisp cantaloupe  yarn from the sweet sorbet accessories kit in the sale-a-bration  flyer. I also have thought I should make up some with Thank you as well.  Nice to have on hand when you need one.

2.  Using the soft clay.  I like making lots of the molds at once, that means I make them all in white and then color them when I’m ready to use them.  This one was colored with cherry cobbler dauber and rose red and daffodil delight marker.

3.  Windows to the inside.  To make the opening for the flower I used my stamping trimmer.  If I had a set of rectangle shaped framelits, I would have used them, for a crisp consistent cut.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
