An Image-less Card

I've been meaning to sit down and blog for days now, but it has become impossible since I've been doing a lot of family stuff, plus I've been helping a friend cleaning, and organizing her craft room,  spending most of my free time with her. My "crafting time", or the time I can dedicate to "artsy, blog and video stuff" is very limited, so lately I've just been doing other things. I did however create this card, and for a change, I did not color an image for it, like I've been doing with my cards lately.
Perfect for Mother's Day, and I wish I would have been able to post it Sunday, right on Mother's Day, but hey, better late than never, right? I used my Stampin up Doily background stamp, which I embossed on a piece of light green vellum using white embossing powder. Underneath the doily I added some gold mesh trim I recently purchased.
For the sentiment I used one of my Spellbinder's Fancy Labels die, and I embossed a sentment from a Unity Stamp set I never had used before. It is called A Mother's Love. I added two gold buttons to the sides of the label, and set the complete embellishment on a mat of kraft cardstock, which I embossed using my Swiss Dot Cuttlebug embossing folder, and glued onto a green card base, in a not so straight manner I might add lol. I always have issues gluing mats straight on my card, not to mention making straight cuts... You think I can blame it on my trimmer?? lol.
I absolutely love this doily stamp and should use it more often. Hope you guys like it!

  1. This card is really pretty. I like the gold trim. Where is that from?
    I know what you mean about the matts never being glued down straight. I go through the same thing. My husband is the one that notices it. I could care less. I used to care. LOL.

    1. Hi Ana, the trim is from the warehouse down in Miami. Janet and I split it. The mats never being straight drive me insane! lol
