Modern Mix Mother’s Day Card

By mixing the cute silhouette of a little girl and a bold graphic print, this Mother’s Day card has the right blend of modern and traditional. Using the Stampin UP window panes (soon to be retired so get them while they last) makes the silhouette image look like a picture hanging on a wallpapered wall.

I stamped the silhouette, an upcoming hostess set called Priority Mail from the new catalog (to be released June 1), in chocolate chip ink on whisper white card stock, then matted it with early espresso card stock and placed it behind one of the window panes to create a picture frame look. The ribbon slides through slits on either side of the window pane to hold the frame in place. The ribbon I used here is Crumb Cake Seam Binding topped with Early Espresso Quilted Satin Ribbon.

For the base, I used Crumb Cake card stock, layered with Early Espresso and the green chevron patterned paper from Summer Smooches DSP.

The sentiment is from Messages for Mom, stamped in Lucky Limeade ink on Whisper White. I matted the strip with Early Espresso card stock, with a Crumb Cake Small Oval Punch and Early Espresso Designer Label Punch in the back. And because it’s for Mother’s day, what mom doesn’t like pearls? I added two Basic Pearls to the label just for Mom.

Hearted Thanks

This is a non-SU stamp that I bought years ago called Hearted Thanks. The label on the stamp is colored exactly like this, which inspired my colors for the rest of the card. I used Copic Markers to color in the stamped image, then cut it out.

The card base is Pumpkin Pie, layered with Soft Suede textured card stock. I used the Signo White Gel Pen to make some squiggles along the sides.

Across the front, I used 1 1/4″ Striped Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon and tied it in the center with white string. Then, I looped the string through the Designer Buttons-Brights Collection and tied a double knot. A mini glue dot behind the ribbon and one behind the button keeps everything tight.

Finally, I took the white string and looped it through a hole I punched in the stamped image (the paper piercer makes a nice hole for this size string). I tied the ends around the button and cut off any excess. Two stampin dimensionals behind the stamped image keep it in place, but you could also leave it hanging freely.

Another version I did uses the Decorative Label Punch. I layered the stamped image onto Poppy Parade card stock punched out with the Decorative Label Punch. Then, I added two Rhinestone Brads to the sides.

1 1/4″ Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain Ribbon was wrapped around the soft suede card stock and I attached the label to the ribbon with glue dots.
