mum's birthday card

well here is my mum's b day card. i bought the stamp from the range on tuesday to take my total to £25+ for my discount. i picked this stamp as i thought it was quite versatile. i stamped it in black and used clear embossing powder. in the pressie i stamped little flowers from the daisy and dandelion clear stamp range. i then coloured it in.
the pink glitter paper is the wrapping paper from a lush gift at christmas. i then dry embossed mum onto silver card- i think dry embossing looks best on metallic card.


  1. wow that looks really effective, the pink and silver contrasting looks great! I love the forever friends stamps, they're so sweet :) xx

  2. That looks great I love the way you have added just a bit of colour to the stamped image.

  3. I think your idea od dry embossing the message is really good
    I love that stamp
    Great card

  4. i have the board that they are giving away with a subscription of lets make cards- helix craft station. i got mine from ebay but thought people might be interseted in the deal. the only thing is you have to but the greetings card separately and it is about £10 so it all adds up as there is quite a few different boards. it is good though.

  5. Lovely card, your mum will love it :-)

  6. Your card is gorgeous Alee - your mum will love it too. -x-
