Happy Mother's Day! This is another difficult day for me as I am unable to visit my mom at her nursing home for the second year because of Covid. I've been able to visit for the last month or so, but they are quarantining at her nursing home for the next few weeks because workers there have tested positive. I'm very sad that people who choose to work in that field are not getting vaccinated. It puts so many at risk, but that is their choice. I only wish they would think long and hard about that.
Anyway, I did make a card for her and my mother-in-law. I've been sitting on this Waffle Flower set for a while and I'm so glad I pulled it out for this occasion. It's so pretty! It's a stamp, stencil, and die set called Spring Blooms. I started with the stenciling using several distress oxide inks. Then I stamped the black parts (it's all one stamp which makes it so easy to do!) and finally die cut the image. I die cut it two more times to stack for dimension. I decided to use another stencil for the background. I love this stencil as it gives just enough color and design without being too busy. I mounted it on a pink piece of cardstock and then attached it to the base. I added the sentiment, sprayed it shimmer spray, and added crystals.
I hope you enjoy your day! Thanks for stopping by!
