Hi Stamping Friends,
Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful ladies out there. We are all mothers on mothers' day...to children, friends, family members, pets, plants - whatever you may nurture in your life...so celebrate the day!
Stampin' Up! has these wonderful doiles in their Spring Catalog called Tea Lace Paper Doilies. They're not thick and are easy to manipulate. I crumpled one and then flattened I did make a little vertical pleat to make it a little smaller. It's attached to the card front with a bit of SNAIL Adhesive. The pleat is covered with a piece of Tea For Two Designer Series Paper, popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals. I wrapped Island Indigo Baker's Twine around the card front three times and tied a bow.
Another great product in the Spring Catalog is the 5/8" Vanilla Flower Trim. I used two that I had sponged with So Saffron Ink and a Sponge Dauber. These are attached using Glue Dots.
I snipped the "legs" off a Designer Builder Brad (also in the Spring Catalog). I punched a small circle using one of the Itty Bitty Shapes Punches Pack and used a Glue Dot to attach to the center of the brad. The brads come with little adhesive "bubbles" to cover the circle of DSP. It's attached using Stampin' Dimensionals.
The greeting is from the set, Teeny Tiny Wishes, and is stamped on Vellum Card Stock in Island Indigo Ink. I snipped the end and added a half dimensional to the other end. I slipped this end under the brad to hide the dimensional. Vellum is not very forgiving with regard to adhesives showing through, so try to hide them whenever possible.
Teeny Tiny Wishes has almost every greeting you would ever need and they are tiny. My greeting measures 1/8" x 1-1/2". A lot of times teeny, tiny is all you need. Just look at all these sayings.
