MFT April Creative Challenge–Mother’s Day

creativechallenge_2012apr10

Hi, everyone, it’s time again for the MFT Creative Challenge! This month the design team was challenged to make a Mother’s Day card or project. Nothing says Mother’s Day like MFT’s Clearly Sentimental About Mothers, so that’s what I used for today’s card.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you over on the MFT Blog.

This card reminds me of my mother: flowers, the stitching, pretty ribbon, and the music—she loved all of them. After I put my card base together, I added a
Die-namics Dizzy Doily layer which has a circle of patterned paper made with my Die-namics Circle STAX. You can’t see it too well in the picture, but it’s peeking out :) I adhered my bling on top of that, then I added a Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX element with some music patterned paper. Then I added a seam binding bow with a twine-tied button and the sentiment, stamped on a Die-namics Layered Label die cut. Finally, I added a Die-namics Royal Rose and some Die-namics Royal Leaves to finish it off.

Here’s a close up of the rose. I love this rose die! And the leaves—perfection, I tell ya!

Here’s a close-up of the sentiment—I sponged the edges to add a vintage feel.

And here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set.
