Hello friends and happy Wednesday! I hope your week is off to a good start! My mother is THE single most important woman in my life and I'm honored to call her my very best friend. I hope you are all as lucky as I feel to have a special woman like this in your life - be it a mother, a grandmother, an aunt, niece or even an older mentor you admire.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. This is my go-to white cardstock for e-v-e-r-yt-h-i-n-g from die cutting, to Copic coloring, ink blending and yes, for printing my digital stamps too! I used a piece of this Neenah paper to die cut the butterfly background. I printed the two roses from the Spring Rose digital stamp set from Joy Clair Designs onto the Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. I also printed the butterfly from the Just Butterflies digital stamp set. I colored the rose and butterfly using a lot of colors in the purple family of Copic markers. I fussy cut the butterfly and roses and adhered them to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.
I printed the sentiment "Happy Mother's Day" onto white cardstock and used a large oval punch to punch the sentiment out before adhering it to the card also using 3M adhesive. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the roses and the butterfly for extra sparkle. You can never have enough sparkle!!
I hope you have enjoyed today's card and that it inspired you to think about the special woman in your life. Mother's Day is coming up on May 8th this year.
