Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop - This One is for Your Mom
Hi there!! Welcome to the Del & Artie stop on the Mother’s Day blog hop from the Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team. We feature card’s for our mommas today. My card was inspired by a card created by a friend of mine on instagram, Michelle Peckham, (@icardink).
My card doesn’t actually say mom anywhere, but when I was a kid, I would tell my mom she was my favorite mom in the world. Of course, now that I’m older, she still holds the title, but shares it with my wife, Paula.
To start my card I took out the floral spray image from the Conservatory of Quotes stamp set from Brutus Monroe. I stamped it out on some Neenah Solar White cardstock with Raven detail ink. Raven and alcohol based markers like Copics pair well together.
I colored in the image with one yellow-green and three shades of red-violet Copic markers. The image has shading already built-in on the leaves, so I did not use more than one shade of green. Then, I cut out the image with my Brother Scan N Cut.
Then, I trimmed down a piece of Cotton Candy cardstock from Cardstock Warehouse to 4 1/8 x 5 1/2”. I embossed the “You’re My Favorite” sentiment from the Super Sentimental stamp set and the corner floral spray from the Beautiful Blossoms stamp set with Alabaster Embossing Powder.
I made an A2 sized card base out of some Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock. I scored it down the middle and trimmed off about 2 inches from the right front. Then, I glued Cotton Candy panel to the inside panel of the cardbase facing forward.
To finished off the card, I adhered the floral spray onto the front flap of the cardbase leaving a third of it hanging off the right side of the flap.
I hope you enjoyed this Mothers Day card. I have added a supplies grid below for your convenience. I ‘d appreciate you using it if I have inspired you to shop for any of these items.
Please continue to hop along with the rest of the team to see what everyone else made for their momma. The blog hop list is below the supplies grid.
Thanks for joining me today and have a crafty and fun-filled day.
