New At SU April Blog Hop Celebrating Mother's Day

Welcome to the New At SU April Blog Hop as we celebrate Moms, Dads, Brides & Grads. There are so many special occasions coming up in the next couple of months and our Design Team members will be sharing projects and ideas to help inspire you to create your own beautiful projects. For my card design, I will be Celebrating Mother's Day, a special occasion to celebrate the special mothers in our lives.
For my card design today, I wanted to create a beautiful, elegant Mother's Day card and what better way to do that than with the gorgeous Expressions In Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper. The designs in this paper pack are simply stunning and I chose to use one of the patterns with the gold foil accents for my background. The Celebrating You stamp set is an amazing sentiment stamp set and I just love the beautiful script for the Happy Mother's Day image. The die cut tea cup is a Sneak Peek from the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and was created with the new Teacup Dies. The detailed butterfly die cut is from the Brilliant Wings Dies looks amazing in gold foil to coordinate with the designer series paper.

Mother's Day cards should be extra special to celebrate the amazing women in our lives. I struggle to create over the top cards with lots of layers, preferring to keep my designs clean and simple. I chose to use Gold Foil to create my detailed butterfly and the detailed layer for my teacup to coordinate with the gold accents in the designer series paper background. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image with Gold embossing powder for an elegant touch and to tie all the elements of the card together. To embellish the card, I used Basic Rhinestone Jewels for the body of the butterfly to add some bling as well as several of the Brushed Brass Butterflies to embellish the teacup and sentiment label.
