TLC166 - Mother's Day Card

This card is for my mom for Mother's Day and for yesterday's Try a New Technique Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers (No my mom doesn't read my blog, so she won't see her card). The challenge was to make a two way open card and I would definitely recommend making one, the directions on the challenge thread were easy to follow and the card was fun to make!



I used the Fabulous Flowers stamp set and did the rock and roll technique using Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose. I stamped the flower twice and cut out just the center of one, then added a rhinestone brad and popped it with pop dots. All of the flower petals, even the flowers inside the card were all out lined with my clear Spica glitter pen (love this pen, you have to get one!) it adds such a pretty shimmery glitter with out over doing it. I added the Barley Banana flower on the front using a blue rhinestone brad to help hold the front flap down (if you have Hodgepodge Hardware I would recommend using a piece from it to do this).

Sorry some of my pictures are not the greatest, personally I think its my old camera but my DH thinks its the person behind the camera, LOL!

Supplies: Fabulous Flowers, All Holidays, Full of Life (for saying inside card), Ribbon, Rhinestone brads, Two scoops Basic Grey designer paper, Spica glitter pen, Pop dots. Colors: Not Quite Navy, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Barley Banana.
