Mother's Day Card

As we all know, Mother's Day is next month and this beautiful set inspired me to create a card for my Mother. To create my card, I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Lovely Blooms stamp set with Versafine Ink in Black Onyx. Once the ink was dry, I colored them using Prismacolor colored pencils and then blended them using a blending stump and Gamsol.

Next, I die cut all of the images using the Lovely Blooms coordinating dies and then layered them using double sided foam adhesive to give it a more dimensional look.

The banner for the "mother" sentiment is a strip of cardstock trimmed to length. I used my Scor-pal to add the folds and then adhered it on top of the mason jar image using double sided foam adhesive.
