I hope that everyone enjoyed their weekend and had a chance to participate in some of the festivities for National Scrapbook Day if that was on the agenda. I was pretty productive considering the weather was gorgeous and the hubs and I wanted to enjoy that as well. I had almost forgotten that I needed to make cards for my dad's birthday and for Mother's Day, so that was first on my list.
For my Mother's Day card, I cut the patterns from 2 Project Life cards in my April Studio Calico kit and then used washi tape to adhere them together. From there it was just a matter of stamping my sentiment and punching out a couple of shapes. I felt it needed a little more stamping so added the little row of hearts at the top and put an enamel dot on the butterfly to finish it off.
I only had a few Project Life cards left from my March kit and this one was a favorite. Turning it into a birthday card for my dad wound up being the perfect way to showcase it. I used watercolors for the stamped sentiment as well on the wood veneer pieces. I had forgotten that I wanted to sprinkle some mist droplets before adhering everything and went ahead and did it after the fact. You can see that I didn't do a good job of covering up everything and got some on the yellow star. oops!
