A Happy Birthday to My Mother!

Papillon Potpourri soft birthday card angle

One of my all-time favorite color schemes is Pink Pirouette with crisp white and dramatic black.  It’s such an elegant look and feel.  So I used the combo for my mother’s birthday card.  (I think I used the same colors in her Mother’s Day card too.  Oops!)  I had to make sure she received her card in the mail first before I posted it here – so now that I’m sure she has it, I can share it with all of you!  I love making something special for her, because I love her, she deserves it, and because she loves my cards and appreciates them!

First, I stamped one of the smaller doilies from Delicate Doilies stamp set down the left side.  Then, using the Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect placement, I stamped the sentiment from Blooming with Kindness in Black StazOn ink.  While I had my doily inked up with Pink Pirouette I stamped it on a scrap then stamped the butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set over that before punching it out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch.

I used the same punch to layer a black butterfly silhouette and punched out the small 4-petal flower in pink from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.  An itty bitty black circle  topped with a bitty pearl was added to the tiny flower.  My bone folder aided me to curve the wings of the butterfly and the petals of the tiny flower.

The black delicate scallop edge was punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and tucked under the stamped panel before the panel was adhered to the Pink Pirouette card base.
