Chickaniddy Crafts: Mother

Post 2 of 2 for me today...click HERE for my Top Dog Dies/Whisker Graphics post.





Hello!

Today is my Chickaniddy Crafts Day!

My project for today focuses on the theme:  Mother

I had fun combining Chickaniddy Crafts Date Night and Twirly Girly Collections for today's card:

Supplies:  Paper (TG14OSO8; DN14OS12; DN14OS10) Mini Sticker Banners (DN14EB03; TG14EB03) Brads (DN14EB06; TG14EB06) Enamel Hearts (DN14EB07) Mini Sticker Sentiments (TG14EB05)

Don't you love how the two different collections flow together seamlessly?  I super LOVE all the texture on the card.


























The twine gives that portion of the card a banner look.  Isn't the enamel heart, well, delish?

The flower in the lower right circle has been reduced by one layer.

TIP:  The original embellishment in the lower right hand corner had 2 layers of flowers.  I made it smaller by removing the larger die cut layer.  It made it a smidge smaller so that it would fit perfectly on my card.  I'm saving the other layer to use in another project.  I can easily use another brad with it!


I using the Mini Sticker Sentiments!  The one I used on my card has been adhered with foam tape so it packs a punch!  Similar to the top 2 circles, those stickers are also on foam tape.

TIP:  Adding different 'heights' to your card is a great way to add visual interest.  foam tape is an easy way to accomplish this.

I can't wait to give this to my Momma.  Of course, it will come with a Starbucks Gift Card.  Earlier this year, we gave my Momma a new phone, an iPhone 5C (sad to say that I still only have a 4S!) and we're slowly teaching her new things.  This weekend I'm going to be introducing her to the Starbucks App...Life is Good.
