I often start to make a card with a particular idea in mind and as I start, I think of another idea or I don't really like what I am doing and so I change my mind. The end card is often quite different to the one I first imagined. That's how this one started but I am very happy with the end result.
I have used Whisper White and Real Red for this card. The Butterfly, hearts and the Modern Label punched piece under the Happy Birthday are all using the Red Glimmer Paper which gives a lovely sparkle to this card. The hearts are punched from the Owl builder Punch and the butterfly is the Elegant butterfly.
The larger piece of white card is embossed with the Lacy Brocade folder and the smaller piece uses the Manhatton Flower embossing folder. These were the taped to Real Red card. The smaller piece of red and white was attached with Dimensionals.
"To a Wonderful Mother" is part of the Wonderful Mother stamp set and a tag from Hearts a Flutter Framelits was used to cut it. The Happy Birthday is from Create a Cupcake. (I lost this happy birthday stamp a couple of years ago and you wouldn't believe but I found it the other day, so just had to use it). The ribbon is Real Red 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain.
This card would also be nice for a Mothers Day card.
