April 2022 NC Demos Blog Hop

 Welcome to the NC Demos Blog Hop we are here the last Sunday of each month and so happy you could join us this evening.  The theme for this month is "Spring Special Occasions" and I have decided to do a Mother's Day card.  I have looked over my cards the last few years and realized I had not done a Mother's Day card in years so it was time.

The base of my card is Fresh Freesia cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4.  I then cut a piece of the 2021-2023 InColors 6 x 6 DSP to 5 1/4 x 4 and added it to the front of the card.  Then I grabbed the Cut and Emboss machine and went to work cutting pieces from the Scalloped Contour Dies and the Penned Dies.  The scalloped piece in white and the label piece in Fresh Freesia then the solid flower piece in the Freesia and the detailed floral piece in White.  I did stamp some splatter on the card to add more color and then I attached the two Floral pieces and put them on the Scalloped piece with dimensionals and put this whole piece on the lower right side of the card with dimensionals.

The Label in Fresh Freesia I stamped the sentiment in Basic Black and added that to the upper left side of the card.  To finish the front I made a bow from the Fresh Freesia Open Weave ribbon and added that to the card with a dot and then added 3 rhinestones.

For the inside I cut white 5 1/4 x 4 and added a strip of the DSP to the bottom that measured 3/4 x 4 1/4.  My card is now complete and I love it.

Thank you so much for stopping by and make sure you check out all the blogs for some great stamping ideas these ladies are amazing.  Till next month take care and be safe.
