Happy Mother's Day Card ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     What mother wouldn't want to receive flowers for Mother's Day? I colored and fussy cut these yellow roses with the Charcoal Flowers stamp from Red Rubber Designs onto this tag/card that I made for my mother-in-law!

     My design inspiration came from sketch #3 used for this months Card Challenge @

     The background squares were colored with Distress Inks onto white cardstock, cut with decorative scissors, and machine stitched around the edges. I used the Beauty Of A Woman Background stamp to create the script on the green squares, by simply using water onto my stamp and letting it react with the Distress Inks for a softer look. To the yellow squares, I used a dotted stencil with some white gesso to create some polka dots. Then I stamped some smaller dots onto the white tag, using the Speckle Background stamp, and raised it up a little with some pop dots. 

     For the sentiment I used the Contemporary Greetings stamped along the bottom. Thanks for looking!


House of Cards ~ Add script and/or color inspiration: I stamped the script on the green squares with water.

Dare 2 B Artzy ~ Polka Dot Challenge: I made polka dots on the yellow squares with gesso, and stamped dots onto the background of the tag.
