The Sweetest

Sweetest Heather Telford

Celebratory cards continue to be the feature over on the Penny Black blog. These week the design team has created cards for Mom or Mum as I would spell it. I was pleased to see that a ‘Mum’ stamp included in the new mini set ‘The Sweetest’. To create my clean and simple card I inked the little floral corner stamp with memento markers, spritzed it with water and stamped on watercolour paper. I spritzed the stamp again without re-inking to get a paler image to the right of the first impression.

I used a banner die to create a little tag for the sentiment and echoed the shape on three corners of the panel with the ticket corner punch. I added a little bow to the tag before popping it up over the panel then attached the whole panel to a blue mat and then to the cream card base.

Karen is hosting the April One Layer Simplicity Challenge so pop on over and check out her oh-so-cool card. I’m sure you’ll get inspired to participate.
