Beautifully Penned – Wonderful Mother

Welcome back…lots of inspiration for today’s card…

My creative choices were influenced by:

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Flirty Flamingo cardstock.
  • Accent Panel: (4” x 5¼”) Black and White Leaf patterned piece of paper from the retired Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper pack.
  • Tag: (2” x 3¾”) Basic Black cardstock
    • Two Tailor Made Tags Dies were nested together and die-cut to make the Tag Shaped Frame.
    • Frame Inset: (1¾” x 3½”) Black and White Floral patterned piece of paper, also from the retired Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper pack.
    • The upper most Flower was colored with retired Light and Dark Pink Pirouette (for Blushing Bride) and Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends to match the Butterfly.
  • Rectangle: (2” x 1½”) Basic Black cardstock scrap
    • The sentiment, Happy Mother’s Day, from the retired Wonderful Mother stamp set (Circa 2012) was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with White Embossing Powder.
    • The Label was then dry-embossed with the retired Dotted Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder.
  • Shape Element – Butterfly: Retired Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper.
    • The Multi-Butterfly patterned piece of paper was die-cut with the Brilliant Wings Die resulting in a multitude of very pretty butterflies.
    • The smaller Blushing Bride/Flirty Flamingo Butterfly was chosen for this card.
  • Embellishments: Basic White Baker’s Twine and Basic Rhinestone Jewels
    • The piece of Twine was wrapped around the card front and threaded through the Tag Hole and tied into a bow.
    • Three Basic Rhinestone Jewels were colored with the Dark Flirty Flamingo and Basic Black Stampin’ Blends and added to the sentiment label.

All of the elements were adhered to match the mirror image flip of the sketch.  I love using Black and White and Flirty Flamingo is a nice complementary color.
