Recently I was asked to create a Mother’s Day card for a contest sponsored by Paper Garden, a paper company located in Canada. They sent me a sample collection of some of their papers and it was really nice to work with! It is thicker than the Close To My Heart cardstock I like to use, so I needed to adjust my cut settings on the Explore so it would cut all the way through. I used some of their shimmery/pearlescent finish paper for my Mother’s Day card. It is hard to see in the photos, but the white background and the lavender layer on the roses are cut from this shimmery paper.
The corner rose cut came from the Quarter Note Cricut cartridge. I tweaked it a little in Design Space to add another layer. The sentiment came from Artiste by Close To My Heart. I think it makes a simple, yet elegant card and I know just the Mom who will receive this card!
This card will be entered into the contest where you can vote for your favorite entry on the Paper Garden website HERE. Of course, I would be honored to have your vote. (Insert blush here!) There are some nice prizes which will be given to each winner. Hop on over to their website, check out the entries and pick your favorite!
For a little fun, I added a couple pictures of my “cat assisted” photo shoot. Stella was a BIG help, let me tell you! But isn’t she pretty?
