Hello everyone I'm here with your Saturday inspiration for Live & Love Crafts. Well as you know Sandy asked us DT girls for Spring Themed cards. Well to me Spring means Mother's Day in the UK as its Mother's Day here in the Uk tomorrow I am showing you a Mother's Day Card.
Now I made this card for someone, the request was a Box Frame Card & it was to be red.....
here's what I came up with...........
Ok so I've not actually used Spring papers........no no no I've used my utmost favourite red papers which are Maja Design 'A Gift For You' christmas papers. Of course I've used the ones that have nothing christmassy on them..........I love it when some papers are like that.
I cut the 'FOR YOU' from a 12x12 sheet of the same collection. Made a heart of flowers in the centre of the frame.
I really was stuck on what image.......however this gorgeous LOTV Bear cried out to me........after all he's holding a heart. He was of course coloured using distress ink pads & inks.
I also added a small piece of the design paper to the patch on his heart ;-)
I put a flowers display in the corner using larger flowers, Magnolia Sprawling leaves & one of my favourite Noor Design dies, the 'Swirl Leaf' die. I've also added Pearl String in there & a 'Mother' charm from my stash.
I decorated all the sides, inside & outside of the frame. The top layer I actually stitched a few rows around with my sewing machine.
The banners I made myself using my laptop. At the top I also put Rose Organza Trim which you cant really see in the pic. Think you can see it in the ic with the corner flowers a little bit lol.
Well I have a busy day today & its spending it all with my family & we are going to a shabby chic shop that my eldest son found. So excited about that. Tomorrow I'm getting taken out for Mother's Day dinner..........first time since I became a mum 24 years ago, definately excited about that as well.
I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend & hope all you fabulous mums get spoilt rotten tomorrow.
Tatty bye lovelies.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxxxxxx
