It was Mother's day yesterday here in the UK, and I hope all the Mum's had a good day! We went out for a family meal with my parents, mother in law, my son and his girlfriend and I enjoyed it very much.
Now for Spot the Difference - can you see the differences between the two cards I made for our Mums?
I started this card back to front, it was totally the wrong way to start, by cutting the window with a Spellbinders die, adhering to some DCWV paper adding the paper roses - then try and assemble it to the rest of the card which had not been decided at that point! No, it is better to decide and assemble the card and do the window last! I mounted the DCWV panel on some Papermania paper. This was mounted on to a large scalloped square of pink. Then the spotty ribbon was applied and the pink square was adhered to the yellow square which had ribbon already applied one side, then the holes were punched through both colours for the brads, and this was attached to a Craftwork Cards 8"x8" scalloped card blank. I added some butterfly die cuts that came with the Papermania paper pack, a corner Spellbinders die cut and a spotty bow. I wanted to turn the plain end over but the glue I used to attach the bow was so strong I couldn't do that. A touch of glitter glue on the roses, butterflies and paper, then Happy Mother's Day was stamped on the paper (with a Hero Arts clear stamp) and heat embossed - and it was done.
Same card, a few little differences, the papers are different, there is one large butterfly, the brads are a different colour - that's all!
