Time to Make Mother's Day Cards

Hi PND Fans! Betty here today....Mother's Day is just a couple of weeks away. I am lucky that my 88 year old mom is still with us to celebrate this special day.  It's time to make Mother's Day cards and today I'm sharing one I made with the newly released digital stamp called Emma with Pinwheel from Paper Nest Dolls. I also added some flowers from the Fairy Set to create this simple, but cute A6 size card. 

For this card, I used digital images to create the card front along with sun and cloud die cuts. First I imported the Emma with Pinwheel and the flowers from the Fairy Set into my Silhouette Studio software and sized the images for an A6 size top-folding card. I then created the Happy Mother's Day sentiment and placed it where I wanted it. I then printed it and used a retangular die from Gina Marie Designs to cut it. I colored the images using Copic markers.

Copic Markers Used:
Hair: E15, E34, E11, YR20
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000
Cheeks: R20, R30
Green (shirt): YG17, GY13, YG11, T3
Purple: V17, V15, V12
Blue: B02, B00, B000
Pink: RV02, RV00, RV000, T1
Green (grass): YG67, YG25, YG23, YG21

Next I die cut the sun using light yellow cardstock and clouds using white cardstock. For the cloud in the middle, I glued two together to add dimension and cut part of the cloud on the right. 

I used light blue cardstock and patterned paper from my stash for the mats and adhered the card front, sun, and clouds. To finish the card, I added a few enamel dots from Gina Marie Designs. 

Thank you for visiting and have a creative week! ~Betty~
