Paper Roses for Mother's Day Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida
Hey y'all! Can you believe I have my Mother's Day card ready this early? A record, for sure!
My primary inspiration for this card was the paper rose you see above. Jeanette made it sound so easy- which it was! - but mine will never be as beautiful as hers!
This card has a lot going on, so I didn't use patterned paper and kept the colors simple. You can see that there are three key elements - the roses, the sentiment panel and the cameo tag. You usually can't go wrong if you feature three elements rather than two or four.
There is a tiny big of patterned paper - "Lush" from Pink Paislee". I cut leaf shapes from a small piece and scored veins in the leaves. The sentiment mat and the tag are cut and embossed with my awesome Nestabilities(TM) die templates - as well as a tiny mat behind the cameo! I stenciled the Fancy Tag die template with Blush ink and dabbed a bit on top of the smaller rose. The Blush cardstock is scored and sanded to show the white core. Simple but a nice backdrop to anchor all the craziness! And no ribbon - can you believe that?
I hope you will be able to spend Mother's Day with your dear mother, as I will. I hope that my son will be able to come home from college - I've never had a Mother's Day without my baby!
