Happy Wednesday and welcome to the next stop on the Made for Mom Creativity Celebration.
HERE to begin the full tour. If you get lost, you will find the list of participating sites on Lain's site as well. These special treats, freebies and offers are brought to you by a group of women who met through Lain's classes. I hope you find lots of inspiration along the way.
Keeping Life Creative. She has an adorable free "feltie" printable and a super discount on these inserts for a recipe binder that would make a great gift!
I have a special card for Mom to share with you today. Designing for digital diecutting is one of my favorite things to do. The following photos will take you through the steps for assembling the card.
Here are all of the pieces needed to make this card. I cut them with my Silhouette Cameo using the Studio software but I am sharing files in various formats. The letters and hearts are cut into the top layer of the card which makes it much quicker to assemble.
Points are cut from the white mat layer to allow the alligator texture pink shimmer cardstock to show through.
When the flower ring is added the secondary pattern of white scallops is highlighted.
The "Mom" topper is layered with the center circle and raised with foam dots. Of course, I couldn't leave well enough alone...some bling was needed...
I chose pink pearls instead of the "diamond" gems to carry the shimmery pink theme.
The card base (11 x 5 1/2 inches) and the first dark pink layer (5 3/8 x 5 3/8 inches) are cut with a trimmer.
I chose to put the fold at the top of the card - I often do this for larger special occasion cards.
The shimmery pink cardstock is difficult to write or stamp on so I added an inside mat.
I used this Martha Stewart Punch around the Page set called "French Scroll." If you can't find this set locally, you can find it on Amazon HERE. The dimensions needed for the punch around the page to work properly (5 x 5 inches) were a perfect fit for the card.
The leftover hearts from the front medallion make a lovely accent on the inner mat.
You can download the file for this card with the following links. Please be sure to double check the sizes and turn on the cut lines. I have listed the sizes for all of the elements above.
