Stamping With Friends April Blog Hop Mother's Day

Welcome to the Stamping With Friends April Blog Hop as we share projects inspired by upcoming holidays in the month of May. These holidays may be something well know or an occasion you have not heard of before. It's a fun way to create and send cards to the people we love to let them know that we are thinking of them. 
When I think of May, I automatically think of Mother's Day. As children, we would make handmade cards and gifts at school for our mothers and the tradition continues as we get older, although we tend to substitute the handmade gifts and cards for something special from a store. My Mum lives in Australia and one of the challenges I find with living in the U.S. is that it is very difficult to find a card with "Mum" on it instead of "Mom", which is more common here. So I love the opportunity to create my Mum a beautiful, handmade, one of a kind card that is special for her. Today I chose to use products from the Love You Always Suite in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. I chose to use one of the designs from the True Love Designer Series Paper (item #154281) with the Forever And Always Bundle (item #156200). This pretty paper is so easy to color with Stampin' Blends Markers and you can customize with your choice of colors.

This clean and simple card is easy to assemble and is nice and flat to make it suitable for mailing. I love coloring with Stampin' Blends Markers and this beautiful paper is perfect for this technique. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the colored images for a touch of shimmer to step up the background. The Gold Foil lettering adds a lovely elegant touch to the design and Gold Glitter Enamel Dots are the perfect embellishment to finish off the design. This card design would work well for a variety of occasions and you can change the look and feel of the card simply by changing the colors. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my Mother's Day card will help inspire you to create your own beautiful cards to help celebrate this special occasion for the wonderful women in your life. Coloring is a wonderful way to relax and unwind and provides you with the ability to customize your card designs to suit any occasion.
