Mother's Day Card at Cardz TV

Happy Friday crafting friends!
We are starting a new term at Cardz TV. Mary has shaken things up a bit. We now have two teams that post every alternate week, so there is inspiration for you every Friday. I'm happy to tell you that I was selected for the Mailbox Smiles team. Our other team is the Card Crazy Crafters :-)

As always, our challenge is Anything Goes.
Prize ~ A stamp set from Cardz TV.

As promised, I'm going to share with you the very first card I embroidered and what was the start of a new branch of this card making hobby of mine. I love embroidering cards!
I made this card to give to my mom on Mother's Day.

I love these pretty colours together and love the linen card stock base. So elegant! For the center of this card, I used one of the new flower stamp and die sets from Cottage Cutz. I used copic markers to colour in the image. I punched the corners with a decorative punch and added a little gem for some additional bling.

 I stamped and cut two sets of the rose stamp, so that I could fussy cut the center rose and pop dot it to add some dimension to the image. I went over the roses and the butterfly with a Wink of Stella pen to add a little sparkle here and there.

On the inside, I used the Going in Circles stamp set from Cardz TV.
Here is a quick look at this stamp set. It has so many greetings for a variety of occasions. I also like that you can add a little image to the center for a little extra interest :-)

You can view and/or purchase this and other Cardz TV stamp sets HERE.
