Happy Mother's Day: SSIC #87 & JUGS #82



I can't believe I have my mom's Mother's Day card finished. I'm trying hard to make cards ahead of time, and right now at least, I'm doing pretty well! This card was a real departure for me. I wanted to play around with vintage-ness and not use a sketch. I thought Stamping Sisters in Christ's challenge to not use any patterned paper, and Just Us Girls' challenge to use the emboss resist technique both would lend themselves well to what I was picturing in my head. Aqua Mist and Ocean Tides are my mom's favorite colors, and last year's card was Ocean Tides, so . . . the color was an easy choice. I went with white on white too, because I like the look of it when the white is embossed. I have to give a shout out to Diane Jaquay on this card--it wouldn't have been possible without her. Why? Because I won some lovely blog candy from her several months ago, and the doily is something from the goodies that I've been hoarding. Also, she's been using amazing flowers like the one here, and thanks to her I've ordered some (and that lace too, come to think of it) from Frog Feathers on Etsy. Thanks for the enabling, Diane! :-D Here are the details:

Supplies
Stamps: Verve--Thankful Blossoms
Paper: PTI--S.S. White
Ink: Versamark; PTI--Aqua Mist; E.P.--Filigree Clear
Misc.: Embossing Folder--Sizzix; Border Punch--EK Success; Doily--stash; Flower and lace trim--Frog Feathers; Pins--Maya Road; Ribbon--PTI; Pearls--Prima; Corner Chomper

ROTFL! the comment down there on another post about your Brady Bunch Grand Canyon camping name. Hilarious. Love that episode - when Bobby and Cindy put the beans in the little metal thing for the Indian boy. Anyway....I love this card...that flower is fantastic...and with the doily....it's so classic and pretty and the colors are just delightful.

Love this card, Jill - the combo of white and aqua is just perfect and the softness of all those layers is finished off beautifully by the flower. I do not need any more flowers, I do not need any mroe flowers....
