Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms, aunties, and mentors out there!  This is the Mother's Day Card that I sent this year.  It's a combination of new product sneak-peek and current merchandise - there's soooo much gorgeousness in the new catalog...

New beauties available June 1:
Coastal Cabana card stock and ink (blue-green card base) - the French translation for "Coastal Cabana" is "Copacabana" - feel free to sing a little Barry Manillow if you like... :)
Crushed Curry card stock and ink
Bermuda Bay card stock and ink (small label and darker blue green shading) I'm so glad it's back!!!
Artisan Label Punch
Modern Mosaic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder

Current and continuing catalog beauties:
129216c/131943wSwallowtail stamp
127790c/128562wEn Francais stamp
125845c/128436w Loving Thoughts stamp set
Chocolate Chip Classic Ink Pad
Whisper White card stock
Sponge Daubers
Stampin' Dimensionals
Versamark Ink
Basic Black Embossing Powder

It's a very simple card to make, but is very striking!  For a 5" x 7" card, I cut a 5 x 3-3/4 rectangle of Whisper White and stamped the Swallowtail in Versamark ink slightly off - center.  I heat embossed with black embossing powder and set aside to cool.  For the card base, I used a 10" x 7" piece of Copacabana card stock folded in half to make a 5"x 7" card.  The En Francais stamp is stamped 4 times on the back to cover the corners, with the "seams" of the stamping under the Crushed Curry card stock and Swallowtail image. Then I sponged the card base edges with Bermuda Bay ink and a sponge dauber.  Then I embossed the Crushed Curry (3" x 7") with the Modern Mosaic TIEF and Big Shot, and sponged the edges and ridges with Crushed Curry ink.  When the Swallowtail image was dry, I rubbed over it with Crushed Curry and Chocolate Chip ink and sponge daubers, edged the Whisper White with Copacabana almost to the butterfly and Bermuda Bay along the edge.  Added the sentiment in Copacabana ink over the Artisan Label punched from Bermuda Bay card stock.  Voila!  Enjoy!
