With Mother’s Day just around the corner now is a good time to get those cards and handmade gifts ready to spoil all those special Moms out there. I used the beautiful Ooh La Limited – Daughter’s Rose Red Pop floral paper to create this easy card.
Trim the reverse side of Daughter’s Rose paper to fit onto the front of your folded card base. Mine measure 10×14.5cm. Ink the edges and adhere it to the card front.
Die-cut a circle flourish element out of technique cardstock. I cut 2 to create a layered effect on my card.
Select 3 colours of All Purpose Ink to match your card and paper colours. I chose Burgundy, Cherry Pink and Poppy Red. You will also need a Fantastix tool or a small paint brush.
Paint your flourishes to create a blended Ombre effect. I started with Cherry Pink, then added some Poppy Red and finally added some Burgundy. To finish off I added more Cherry Pink where the colours overlapped to blend them together for a nice seamless Ombre effect.
Cut the circle part off of one of your circle flourishes. Keep the flourish part for your layering.
Punch a 3” circle out of the front side of the paper and adhere it to the front of your card. Adhere the full circle flourish element on top of the circle.
Add your second flourish and a tag.
Finish off your card with a stamped ‘Mum’ sentiment on top of the tag covering the tea party wording, a beautiful paper flower and some diamante.
