This card is going to a hard working doctor who is also the mother of two adorable twin boys. It was pretty simple to make except for all the fussy cutting. Starting with a pre-made step card blank ( Hot Off the Press), I chose some Graphic 45 printed paper which reminded me of wallpaper. The package of 5 cards comes with a pattern to cut printed card stock to cover the card, but it was not correctly sized so I ended up measuring and cutting my own pattern. I stamped the Penny Black image twice, once on a printed paper and once on white marker card stock. After coloring the image with Copic markers I cut it out and glued (Martha Stewart glue pen) it onto the printed chair before cutting out the entire chair and sitting lady. I adhered the chair with foam dots.
The side view shows how more dimension was added with a 'happy mother's day' banner (Lawn Fawn) and small roses.
Here is another version of the card I made for myself and mothers in blogland who would rather craft than clean. LOL! I used Ai stamp sets for the images and saying.
I made the same sitting lady fussy cut image for the inside of the card and added a stamped (Dandelion Designs) sentiment on a Sizzix die cut. I hope all of the messy, crafty mothers out in blogland have a good day of relaxation and crafting.....cleaning can wait!
