Happy Mother’s Day Card

Hello Crafty Friends! It’s Laurie here! I am sharing my Happy Mother’s Day Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using Lulu with Peony. I decided to make a Mother’s Day card since tomorrow is Mother’s Day, but Lulu would be great for so many other cards like birthday, thinking of you, and more!

The Details of My Card

For my card, I decided to colour the peony a hot pink colour using my RV Copic markers. We have peonies in our garden that are this gorgeous colour and I just love them! I went with purples and greens for Lulu since these colours go so well with the peony colour!

When I looked through my papers, I didn’t have any peonies the particular colour. So, I went online and found some digital papers to match my colouring. This is a great resource for papers that you may wish to find. It’s amazing how many digital papers are available!

The other papers were pulled from my stash to match the purple and green of Lulu’s dress. I already had the Graphic 45 die cut green piece leftover from another project. So, I decided it would work for this card to give Lulu a nice backdrop from the peony paper.

The sentiment was stamped in Berry Burst onto a tag that came from the Artistry Collector’s Edition Vol 2. The doily under the sentient and stamp also came from that Collection. I love it when you get a collection that has all these fun elements that match the papers!

I added a wooden butterfly layered on top of the stamp to add interest. The rhinestones and glossy dots added some sparkle to the card. Clear Wink of Stella was added to her bow and to the peony for shimmer.
