MOTHER'S DAY CARD | SIZZIX LIFESTYLE | VIDEO

by - Wednesday, April 11, 2018


Mother's Day is just coming and Spring has sprung almost everywhere! So I clubbed both the themes and made a card for my Mom! I celebrate Mother's Day everyday, the sentiment says it all :) My card features Swan Bigz Die and Garden Florals Thinlit Dies by Sizzix Lifestyle. I was inspired by The Ugly Duckling story, it was my favourite since I was a kid. I love how the creators put those expressions on the little Swan and mom Swan faces. Heart touching!! This story always make me cry!

HOW I MADE THIS CARD
  • I started making my card by folding the card stock which is not a regular sized one, it's a kind of big card
  • I trimmed another panel smaller than the main card base. Both are heavy weight in white
  • Next I die-cut the Swan Bigz Die followed by Garden Florals Thinlit Dies through the Big Shot Plus Machine out of the same heavy weight card stock in white
  • Next I placed my Craft Mat over my work surface and water colored all the die-cuts with Distress Inks (flowers - Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint / Swan - Antique Linen, Black Soot)
  • I water colored the smaller panel also with Spun Sugar
  • I gold foiled one of the Swan's wings by Clearsnap
  • I doodled a bit on Swan's nose with Copic and black permanent markers
  • Finally adhered everything together with Tacky Glue and finished the card with a sentiment from Altenew - Best Mom
