May is full of birthdays for us, also my mom has hers in this month. I wanted to make her something super special to express how much I love her.
This card was heavily inspired by the current Lawnfawnatics #53 Challenge Spectacular skies. And by the current weather in Budapest: so unpredictable with lots of rain.
I started with creating the smiley flower: i die cut all the elements of the Stitched Flower frame die from Bristol Smooth cardstock and used Distress inks to add colour to it: Mowed Lawn for the stem and leaves, Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar for the flower. The middle of the flower I die cut with the Outside in stitched flower and added Squeezed Lemonade distress ink to it.
I also die cut grass with a grassy hillside border die and coloured it with Mowed Lawn Distress ink again.
Then I worked on the background: on a piece of Bristol Smooth paper I applied Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean Distress inks, sprayed it with water and dabbed it off with a paper towel. When it was all dry, I die cut it with the Rainy Backdrop portrait die and backed it with silver glitter paper.
I stamped and coloured with Copics the fairies from my favourite stamp set: Fairy friends. I die cut them with the coordinating dies, added some clear shimmer to their wings and a little gem in their buns.
I assembled the scene, adhered everything flat apart from the fairies which I popped up with 3D foam squares, I die cut the Happy birthday border sentiment from white cardstock and the Mom from pink cardstock 2 times and stacked them together.
I will link this project up to the Lawnfawnatics #53 Challenge and also to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Bright Colors Moodboard.
I hope you liked my card (my mom definitely did!) and will pop in again soon for more inspiration.
See you soon,
