Good morning all, I hope you had a Valentine’s day filled with love and lots of chocolate! I had a nice dinner with my friend Kim, baby Izzy and her brother Kevin. For today’s card I’m posting the Valentine that I gave to my mom. One of her favorite colors is purple so I used Wisteria Wonder Card Stock for the Base of the card. I used my Big Shot with the Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on Very Vanilla for the background, I love the deep detail this folder gives. The Mixed Bunch Stamp Set and the Blossom Punch are two of my favorite items from the Occasions Mini. I stamped the flower in Wisteria Wonder Ink on Wisteria Wonder Card Stock and punched it out with the Blossom Punch. For the leaves I used the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch and inserted them half in the punch for a second time to make the leaf shape. A 2011-2012 In-Color Designer Printed Brad through the middle creates a great flower. The greeting is from the Messages for Mom Stamp Set, It’s really versatile because it comes with greetings that can be used for a variety of cards. I popped it all up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My mom also loves butterflies so I added two from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit for a great finish to the card. I hope you like the card as much as my mom did and thanks so much for stopping by!
