Mother’s Day is almost here, and the new Momma and Baby Giraffes A2 Stencil is just perfect to use for a Mother’s Day card.
Charlene here from Dream Craft Create, and I am so excited to be posting for the first time on the Picket Fence Studios blog! For today’s card I paired the Momma and Baby Giraffes A2 Stencil with the Marvelously You Word Topper Die and the A2 Cherry Blossoms Cover Plate Die.
First, I dry embossed a white A2 sized piece of cardstock with the Momma and Baby Giraffes A2 Stencil. Keeping the stencil in place, I ink blended in pink, yellow, and blue ink on the diagonal using my Life Changing Blender Brushes. I overlapped each color to achieve a rainbow effect. I love blending inks to make a rainbow!
Next, I ink blended again in pink, yellow, and blue ink on a separate A2 sized piece of cardstock. I made sure to keep my piece of cardstock in the landscape orientation while I was ink blending. Once I had another rainbow of color, I die cut the cardstock using the Marvelously You Word Topper Die.
Once I was done with my rainbow pieces, I die cut an A2 sized piece of cardstock using the A2 Cherry Blossoms Cover Plate Die. This cover plate is gorgeous. I want to use it to make a shaker card, but that is a card for another day! Once cut, I used my scissors to trim out the middle portion. I set the middle portion aside to use for another card.
All that was left to do was to put everything together. I used liquid adhesive to adhere my pieces to an A2 sized card base in the order of giraffes, blossoms, then word topper. I added a little bling using sequins from the Day of Rainbows Sequin Plus Mix.
I hope you find some time to craft today, and that my card inspires you. You can find more cards using products from the recent April release on my blog. All the supplies I used are listed below. Happy crafting!
