Happy mothers day to everyone, hope you are all being spoilt rotten :) I know I have been with the cards and gifts I've received from my lovely hubby and daughters.
Well I got up today and remembered that I hadn't done my mums card, I know what a plonker. Luckily I had an idea in my head but couldn't use the SU embossing folder I really wanted to as its still in transit and won't be here until Tuesday so pretty difficult don't you think? So I settled for the next best thing and used one from my own stash. I ran it through the big shot and hey presto a lovely embossed piece of Whisper White card.
Now, when we were at Leeds training the other week, we were given the opportunity to "play" with the big shot and some of the new dies from the mini catalogue. I fortunately chose the butterfly embosslits die on pg 9 to practice with so had them already cut out ( this is another item in transit, can't you tell I'm very organised...lol) so decided to use them on the card as well. The colour combo is Whisper White and Pretty in Pink along with the Rhinestone Jewels. The sentiment is from Occasional Greetings and is stamped in Melon Mambo.
I just love the way this picture shows the depth of detail on the butterflies, the sign of a good quality die.
I'm off to enjoy the rest of my day and a glass of wine. Thanks for visiting and take care. I'd love it if you left a comment, good or bad :)
