ICS April Blog Hop It's A Girl Thing

Welcome to the ICS April Blog Hop as we celebrate "It's A Girl Thing". It's a perfect opportunity to create pretty, feminine projects for the girls in our lives. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they showcase their wonderful ideas and projects to help inspire you.
With Mother's Day coming up next month, I thought I would share this soft and pretty card design featuring the beautiful Ornate Borders Dies (item #152724) to create a delicate lacy background. For the sentiment, I used the Strong & Beautiful stamp set (item #148732) with the Ornate Layers Dies (item #152726) to complete this simply elegant card design. For the color combination I chose Soft Sea Foam, Blushing Bride and Very Vanilla cardstock with Gold Foil flower accents to coordinate with the Gold embossing for the sentiment.

The lace background is the star of this card design and is easy to create. I attached the three floral die cut pieces to the Blushing Bride card front and trimmed the edges. I love the way the Gold Foil flowers and Gold embossing step up this design and I added a small piece of the Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon to coordinate. To finish off the card design, I added small Basic Pearls to the centers of the Gold flowers for a touch of bling. This pretty Spring themed card is a perfect way to help someone celebrate Mother's Day.
