Happy Mother’s Day! (this post was supposed to be completed and go live last Sunday) 😉
I wanted to make Mom a very special card for Mother’s Day and thought it was a good time to try making rosettes. They seem to be all the rage right now in the paper crafts world, so I was finally trying this trend! I used my Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge because it has 7 or so different rosettes to choose from. I cut two strips out and scored them with a Martha Stewart score board and stylus, and used a hot glue gun to attach the pieces together and then to attach the rosette to the card. In order to cover the seams where the two pieces joined, I added some sweet buttons (CTMH Buttons Pink Assortment) and some sparkly Pink Glitter Gems to the rosette. For the center of the rosette, I used my CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut a shape that was similar to the stamps I used from my Perfect Fit—Mom acrylic stamp set.
Here is the card sketch that inspired my card:
Since this was a sketch from earlier this year, I didn’t play along and enter the contest or link to the blog post – but that’s OK. I just love all of the inspiration I get from those Mojo Monday card sketches!
I hope everyone enjoyed their Mother’s Day. I love my mom very much and I am very blessed to have the perfect mom designed for me. 🙂 God definitely knew what He was doing when He created me for my parents, because I wouldn’t ask for anyone else to have raised me. <3Pin It
