Mother's Day Card

This card is one I created several years ago for a swap group in which I participated. We had 20 members, and each month we gathered at one person's home and swapped, which meant each person had to make 20 copies of their particular card. Today, I cringe at having to make multiples for swaps; when I participate in a swap, the exchange has to be a low number -- I much prefer one-for-one swaps!

This was created by tearing off a portion of the folded card stock and adhering another piece of card stock in its place. The mat layer was then cut from the torn off piece of card stock and layered with the stamped image. A bit of glitter was added to the stamped image, and pink ribbon tied on to make it really girly! The stamps used for this card were from the Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose and Victorian Lace sets, both of which have long been retired. Thanks for stopping by today! Have a GREAT day!

This is beautiful! I love the torn edge and touch of sparkle. I know what you mean about making lots of swaps - I can't do it anymore, it's tedious. But I bet the recipients in this swap loved your card.

What a beautiful card! I'm sure the ladies that swapped these with you just loved them. I know I would have. I usually don't mind making a few of one card or project, but 20 is a bit much, even for me. Bless you!
