This was a very cool honor, one of my peers at etsy chose this card for a Mothers day treasury she put together. The treasury was chosen for the front page, which gives my shop more exposure. Thank you OhFaro, it truly was an honor to be chosen along with the other awesome crafters, my Mother would be proud of the company I keep. Here's a link to the treasury http://www.etsy.com/treasury_list.php?room_id=55112 Better yet, check out her shop, she has some awesome hair accessories made from vintage jewelry, here is her link:
I have been busily working on some Mothers Day cards for my shop. I thought I would share a few of them here. I was browsing through my Card Makers Sketch Book by Tanya Fox, and I found this idea for 3 cut sheets going in different directions. I bought these coordinating papers quite a while back, I thought they would really make it pop. I like how they came out but I had no idea how much work would be involved. I was surprised it took a lot more time than I expected. Cutting all the pieces and gluing them on, gluing the letters on (in a straight line)
was more challenging than I imagined. I cut the letters with the Cricut expression, and I used the negatives too. I like the way the lavender stripes show through the word MUM. I ordered a new product called Flower Soft, it just arrived. I will have to tell you what I think of it. I can't wait to start trying it out. Take care.
