For my card, I used a wonderful stamp by our sponsor this week, the very generous STAMPlorations. I used MOM Subway Art Builders #3 "Quiet Strength." It is one of a series of subway art stamps for moms and I loved the various descriptors...they fit my mom perfectly! This card is going to her, for sure.
While you could cut this stamp up to separate each phrase, I just masked repeatedly with a post-it and it worked fine!
For the frame, I did some inlaid die cutting, replacing one layer of the "frame" with a floral patterned paper instead of cream card stock. While it may look multi-layered, my card is actually only one later on top of the card base, so it is very flat and easy for mailing.
I'm also linking my card up to the April CAS Card Challenge at the STAMPlorations Blog where the theme is "Anything Goes" and green is the color twist; I used some floral paper with lots of greens!
What comes to mind when you hear MOM? I can't wait to see your cards! Be sure to link them up by noon on Monday (Central time). Be sure to check out the Design Team and Guest Designer blogs, too!
