Mom's Thank You card

Ahhhh, isn't this flower just yummy???  It's a Hero Arts stamp that I used to make my mom a 'Thank You' card for my sewing machines (and future lessons!!).

She was over my house when I sewed the front of this card as a 'test' so I thought it would be cute to make it into a card and send it off to her.

I stamped the flower and embossed in black on the card front.  I stamped and embossed another flower, colored with distress inks and popped up.  Can you tell from the picture?  I know I saw this same flower being used as a tutorial recently........maybe on Lily Pad Cards? Honestly...I don't remember......but it obviously stuck in my head.

I used a Hero Arts sentiment and since the card was so off balance...I decided to use a Sizzix die cut for the corner (and to hide the sewing mistake!!)

Hope you're making it through the week OK!!!!

Thanks for your visit!


Jim........are you up? get up!

This is stunning! Love the flower and how you cut it out and it just pops with the colors. Awesome stitching, I am sure she will love the card. Ok, so some day my machine should come out....:)

Great card, Maria! Here I was wondering how you lined up your sewing with the corner accent so well...guess you fooled me! That flower is just gorgeous, too.

I love the stitching! It goes very well with the card. Sometime I have got to try some stitching on a card, too.
