Pop ‘n Cuts Dies for the Big Shot are a great way to show case your Mother’s Day cards. I am just loving this new die, the matching All Dressed Up stamp set and the framelits.
There are so many ideas that you can incorporate for the front of the card and then it’s easy to also decorate the inside of the card. So often we forget about the inside. So for display purposes, the recipient of the card has the choice to either display the front or the inside.
Flowers are always a favourite gift for Mother’s Day and so why not put them on the front of the card. They will last for a very long time and bring back the memories of the gift and the celebrations of Mother’s Day. What about Easter? There is a lily image in this set that would be perfect for an Easter card and then there is the daisy to celebrate Spring. The possibilities are endless with this stamp set.
I used a great technique on this card to make the flowers appear to be delicate and airy. First the flower images were stamped with Versamark on Sahara Sand and embossed with White Embossing Powder. After the flowers were cut using the Secret Garden Die Cuts, the petals were painted with Whisper White Craft ink and the Aqua Painter. You will need to let the craft ink dry but if you are impatient, use your Heat Gun.
Next, using the markers and the Blender Pens to color the petals. It is fairly easy to shade the petals where the shadows may lie. Start with the dark colour and then blend out to the middle and end of the petal.
The sweater was cut using the All Dressed Up Framelit and cropping the bottom part of the dress and cutting down the middle and adhering to the dress. Rhinestones were added for some bling and of course a flower punched with the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and a rhinestone in the middle sets off the full outfit. Ohhlala!!
