Hi friends! Happy Saturday! Please welcome back special guest designer, Kelly Rasmussen to our blog! Read on for more information on this lovely card design for Mom and enjoy!
Today I’ve created a Mother’s Day card using some Hero Arts and Simon Says Stamp goodies. My design was inspired by a card I created last month on the Hero Arts Blog that you can find HERE.
I started out by die-cutting the heart opening from a 4.25 inch square piece of woodgrain cardstock. Then I created a watercolor background using Picked Raspberry and Abandoned Coral Distress Inks. I adhered the watercolor panel to a Fog Gray card base, followed by the heart window.
Next, I die-cut the letters for the word “mom” using the Hero Arts Luggage Tag Alphabet Frame Cuts and the same woodgrain cardstock. I adhered these letters to the watercolor panel and then finished stamping my sentiment using the Simon Says Stamp Mom and Dad Icons set.
And the part that I think really makes the card is the sequins! These are Hero Arts Blush Ombre Sequins, which come in a pack that includes a variety of sizes and colors. The arrangement of the sequins gives the illusion of a shaker card, but they are all firmly adhered in place using Mini Glue Dots.
I’m thinking this design would work great for a Father’s Day card as well! You could change up the color scheme and switch out the heart for a circle.
Thanks for reading today, and to Kelly for being our guest!
