Single Layer Mother's Day Card

Sharing another Mother's Day card with you today.

I needed a card to send through the mail, so I opted to keep it thin. I decided to use stamping without any embellishments. I used the Avery Elle So Happy set, one of my favorites (plus I only have a couple of stamps that say 'Happy Mother's Day' on them). This set is nice in that it comes with some little flower stamps in addition to the sentiments.

First, I stamped my sentiment just above the center of the card with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then, I took some simple paper tape (it's actually a medical tape I found at Walgreens in the first aid aisle) and ran a strip of it across the card as a mask over the sentiment. After that was placed, I randomly stamped some of the flowers and leaves using Hero Arts Shadow Inks (I have several of the cube packs, so I can have lots of colors for not much money) in Butter Bar, Green Hills, and Passion Flower.

I removed the tape and thought the card needed something else, so I flipped it over and scored lines with my mini scoreboard along the edge where the tape was. Then I rounded the corners using the yellow WRMK Corner Chomper, and that finished off the card.

I have one more card to show you tomorrow and that will finish up this year's Mother's Day cards. :)
