Easy Mother’s Day Card

Mother's Day Card

Hi All,

A little bit of news… I added the latest forum topics back into the right margin. Someone said they missed having them on the front page, so voila!

Today’s card is pretty easy to make. You can do it with any flower stamp that has a coordinating die (I used Friends of Life and Forget Me Not Flowers). I used two Zig markers and some water to create the tie-dye looking background. I added some glossy accents to the centers. Here is a close-up:

    A very clever use of your dies with matching stamps. I can also visualise this technique working well with heart dies and stamps.

    Love the colors, so vibrant and fresh, this is a fabulous and easy card to make in minutes and yes, I agree with Connie, you can use hearts too.
    Thank you for sharing Darlene.

    Beautiful card Darlene! It does look a bit like tie dye and I really love the look. Love those flowers too. Hugs, Brenda

    I see my favorite color, yellow! Yellow always makes me smile no matter where I see it. What a great card! I love all of the colors and how you did it. It has a very 60’s vibe to it, you know, Flower Power!
