2015 - Week 11 - Mother's Day - Mam

Card No. 3
Like I said before last but not least,
here is the Card I made for my 
partners mum Kathleen.
(or as I call her Mama Kath)

This wonderful Lady raise 3 girls
(one of whom is my best friend)
and an amazing man, 
who is my beloved Fiancee.

This lovely lady also sat me down one day,
while our respective men-folk went fishing.
And introduced me to the 
Wonderful World of Card Crafting

Mam's Mothers Day Card

To begin with I used a pre-cut Scalloped Square White Card
Then for the backing paper
 I used  Iridescent Metallic Yellow Paper
(Craft Planet)

The Image I have used is

Rose And Butterfly 1 - 
By Delicious Doodles.
Which I printed out
  on White DC Paper 3 times.
And coloured it in
using my Promarker Pens

                                                        Roses -       Buttercup
                                                                            Dusky Rose
                                                                            Meadow Green 
                                                                            Pear Green
                                                        Butterfly - Buttercup
                                                                            Dusky Rose

I then used one of the Images as my Base Image,
of which I used the Duotone Special Effect. 
Using the Greeting Card Factory 
(Art Explosion)
From the next Image 
I fussy cut out the Butterfly,
and the all Large Rose.
And from the last Image I 
fussy cut out the Butterfly again
and the center of the Rose.
Then decoupaged the Rose up,
and one of the Butterflies.
The other Butterfly I placed to the top left ,
using a Black Pen to draw in its Antenna .

For my Sentiment I printed it off 
on the Image I used as my Base.
Using the English 111 Presto BT Font,
and Ground 11 Texture for the Writing
(which is Brown Pebbles).

I Handmade the Bow from 
2cm Yellow Glitz Ribbon
And I added some sparkle with 
Holographic Gold Glitter
(Glitter Magic)
to the Swirls around the Roses.
Finally I went around the outside placing a 
3mm Yellow Rhinestone in each of the Scallops
matching the gaps for the straight edge, 
And 5mm Yellow Dotted Rhinestones
to each of the Corners.
