ID: MC Apr/16 - Lady Slipper - Miss You Mom  card
size: 7"w x 5"h (top fold)

Created: April 21, 2016

I received a sample batch of beautiful cardstock from Paper Garden in Ontario. She invited me to submit a mother's day card. I thought this was appropriate since my mom passed away last year. PS it die cuts beautifully.

Then I also got some new stamps from Power Poppy "Orchids Rock" is one of the sets, and wanted to use the Lady Slipper...

I'm using a sentiment stamp  from Quietfire Design  as well as an eCut file available on the  Silhouette onLine store.

("In A Perfect World" 4pce set); Silhouette file "Mom - Rose - Ornament")


Scored and top folded my greenish toned cardstock.

Die cut the largest stitched rectangles (Elizabeth Craft Designs) from the pale green pearlized cardstock (Paper Gardens). Hit the embossed stitching with a mini Distress pad "Broken China". Adhered to card.

Adhered a Sari ribbon "Fairy" across card.

Die cut the Curvy Ovals (Elizabeth Craft Designs) from a Lavender & a white pearlized cardstock (Paper Gardens). Adhered to card.

Created an eCut file for the lady slipper stamp (ps I do that with almost all my new stamps - avoids fussy cutting BIG GRIN). Cut from watercolor paper, smooth side, stamped with Versafine Black Onyx, and colored with Prisma colored pencils.

eCut the "Mom" from white cardstock as well as a shadow rounded layer. The top layer I streaked with minis ("Picked Raspberry", "Mustard Seed", and "Broken China", then clear embossed.


The shadow layer I inked with Versamark and embossed with Pearl embossing powder. Adhered the 2 layers together, then linked the tail with the lady slipper and adhered to card.

Tied a big bow, wrapping the ribbon around my hand a few times, then tying in the center. Adhered to card with a glue gun.

Final touch added lavender and a creamy toned half pearls.
