Papermania Home to Nest Mother's Day card
I used paper and a decoupage topper from the Papermania Home to Nest A4 Ultimate Die-cut and Paper pack to make this Mother's Day card for my mother. My mother was quite the gardener until side-lined by poor health. The Home to Nest pack has Father's Day sentiments in it, and true, it works great for Father's Day, but I think its beauty appeals equally to ladies who love gardening or birds. I complemented the Home to Nest bird print paper with this paper from Papermania Capsule Collection Parisienne Blue that perfectly matches the image's pot.
I stamped and fussy cut the lace trim with a stamp from Papermania Urban Stamp Trim Borders. I adore this stamp! When cut it looks just like lace. I've used it a few times already for some magazine submissions (that alas, I can't show you). I attached the tag with twine to the decoupage image. I like attaching to the 3D image if I can; it gives it even more depth. The lace ribbon is vintage.
