Happy National Scrapbook Day and have a wonderful Mother's Day!!


The Vase of Roses die was used to create the focal point for my Mother's Day card.  I die cut the image four times - once from watercolor paper that I created a pattern using Bister stains, once from white cardstock, and twice from white fun foam.

I cut out the vase from the cardstock and adhered it directly to the white cardstock then I colored the flowers with my Copic markers.  A Wink of Stella (Clear) was added to the roses for added sparkle.

The background for the flowers was also die cut from white card stock using the Diamonds Background by Die-Versions and the sentiment was die cut from the Cuppycake font.


I wanted lots of dimension to my roses and since there are so many small opening throughout the image, I decided it would be too time consuming to cut up small pieces of dimensional foam to achieve the effect I was looking for.  Fun foam to the rescue.  The double layer of fun foam gives me lots of added dimension.  Plus, all the layers were easy to adhere to each other with liquid glue.  It really brings the vase of roses to the foreground.  The photo on the right gives you a glimpse of the effect.

I also distressed the edges of the yellow cardstock and added some Mon Ami Gabby bling around the corners.

Now it's time to visit Archana and see what beautiful project she has created for you.  Happy hopping!  Don't forget to become a Follower of each of the DV design team member in order to be eligible for the grand prize.  We all appreciate it!
