Mom U Rock Card

Who is always there for you through the ups and the downs? MOM!!!  Moms rock through life with the good and the bad, taking it all in stride.  This card celebrates mom's spirit and strength as well as her fragility and grace.  Let's dig in!

Carts Used
  • Gypsy Wanderings - music note (shadow)
  • Indie Art - guitar
  • Plantin Schoolbook - sentiment
  • Cuttlebug Folder - Allegro
I used the pink Gemstones paper from Coredinations.  I really like the shimmer it gives off.  I cut a piece at 4.25" x 5.5" and embossed it with the "Allegro" Cuttlebug folder.  I attach it to the white card base.  I welded the sentiment together on my Gypsy, cut it out in silver and adhered it to the card as well.

 I cut the music note from basic black cardstock and adhere it to the card.  I cut all the pieces to the guitar and assemble it.  I add a little dimension to it by using black and white twine for the guitar strings.  Adds a nice touch, don't you think?! (You will have to cut a slit in the guitar base to feed the strings through.  Use an exacto knife.)

I put some pop dots behind the guitar to give it some lift and a shadow.  Doing this makes all the difference.  I added a few white dots here and there with my gel pen and it was complete.

I hope you like it because I love it!  Check back on Friday for my Mother's Day Blog Hop project.  It's super cute and useful.  Until then....
