Birthday Card for Mom

This is a recent card I did for Mom for her birthday.  2017-09-03 20.37.45

I used Lawn Fawn’s Leafy Tree backdrop to cut out some Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid fall paper.  I used some Bazzill cardstock for the brown rolling hills and the green tree leaves.  The sky paper background is from unknown paper – I just had a scrap of it in my stash which I think I put to good use!  The focal point stamp is from Neat and Tangled’s “My Favorite Nut” set, which I cut out with the matching die and coloured with Copic markers.  I popped this element up using foam squares.  I used a clear Wink of Stella pen on the acorn leaf to give it a bit of shimmer.  The sentiment was stamped with stamps from Lawn Fawn’s “Mom + Me” set.

Mom really liked her card – there’s something about handmade cards that are really special.  I think what I like best about cardmaking is that I can indulge my crafty urges (often with just using scraps from other projects!) which can then make someone else’s day.
