Elegant Mothers Day card dressed up with Pretties Kit

Now that I've given my Mum her Mother's Day card, I can share it with you. This is another large card using a full A4 sheet folded in half.

I used Mellow Moss for the card blank and used the corner rounder punch on all corners. Using the From the Garden stamp (a Level 1 hostess gift) I stamped the image using Versamark ink onto both Always Artichoke card and also onto vellum paper. Both images were heat embossed with gold embossing powder. These were cut out and paper 
pieced onto Very Vanilla card. This was then matted onto Always Artichoke card and then onto the card blank. All corners were rounded with the corner rounder punch.

Using the Happy Mother's Day sentiment from the Occasional Greetings stamp set I stamped with versamark ink onto Very Vanilla card. Gold embossing powder was added and then heat set. A hat pin decorated with vanilla pearls and crystals was added to the sentiment. Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon was tied in a bow to the end of the pin. The sentiment was matted onto Always Artichoke card with dimensionals and added to the card front, again with dimensionals. The corner rounder punch was used again on all corners.

Finally, for the inside I printed a verse directly onto Very Vanilla card. I trimmed this to fit inside, again corner rounding. Using 
Mellow Moss ink and the Forever 
Flowers Stampin' Around wheel, I stamped a border at the edge of the verse.

Hope that you've all had a great Mother's Day.

Keep Stampin'
