Mother's Day Card


This beautiful card is definitely not my normal style of card.  To start with, I chose a different size than I usually make.  Normally, I wouldn't run my distress tool around this type of card, but I decided to just go for it and lightly distressed around ALL the layers on the outside of the card with my Tim Holtz Distress Tool.  Here's what you need:

Paper Trey Ink Vintage Cream cardstock - cut 11" X 5 1/2" + a piece to die cut "Mother"
Dark Blue paper - cut at 5 1/4" X 5 1/4" + a 2" X 4" piece (from my stash)
Tradewinds matstack - 2 coordinating pieces 5" wide
- the light piece was 4 1/2" high and I believe the dark piece was 2" high
Offray ribbon
Prima flowers
Blue misting spray
Cricut "Heritage" cartridge

I used some of the scraps from the Tradewinds matstack to finish off the inside of the card.  For more information, please see the video.
