Here is the second Mother’s Day card that we made at my last card buffet. I LOVE this one…it kind of has that “Shabby Chic” feel to it!
The card base is made using CRUMB CAKE (11 x 4 ¼ scored at 5 ½). The next layer is our WHISPER WHITE (5 ¼ x 4).
CRUMB CAKE ink was used with the various stamps in the TIMELESS TEXTURES Stamp Set. One of the rectangular stamps was used first by stamping a border all the way around the whisper white paper. Then other stamps from this set were used to fill in the middle. Lastly, I grabbed some TIP TOP TAUPE and added some splashes to the bottom left and top right corner. You can add as little or as much filler as you desire.
Next, one of the TEA LACE PAPER DOILIES was cut in half and adhered to the top layer of the card. The edge of that was covered using SAHARA SAND LACE TRIM** and tucked behind and secured with scotch tape to the top layer prior to adhering it to the card base.
The A NICE CUPPA PHOTOPOLYMER** Stamp Set was used for the sentiment. The tea cup was cut out using the BIG SHOT and the framelit dies (were on the “retired” list and are no longer available). The rectangular stamp that was used to make the border around the white card layer was used on the sides, top and bottom of the teacup to finish the look. The sentiment was stamped in CRUMB CAKE INK as well.
Last but not least, I made the little banner for the upper left-hand corner and secured one of our BOTANICAL GARDEN JEWELS with a GLUE DOT to give it some “bling”.
NOTE: Items that have ** behind them are on the “retired” listing. Items on the retired list are going fast so if you are interested, you might wish to order them soon! See the retired list here for what is still available!
So, which card do you like better? The one that I posted yesterday or the card above? Inquiring minds want to know–so make sure you leave a comment!

Both cards were a lot of fun to make. Why don’t you consider coming to my next card buffet where you can create such gorgeous works of art? I bring all of the ideas and the supplies, all you have to do it put them all together. I will be HAPPY to help you with tips and tricks of the trade (i.e. there are two sides of paper for a reason!).
My next card buffet is scheduled for Saturday, May 21 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at UW Oshkosh in Sage Hall, Room 3206. You can choose six cards to make for $15.
Let me know if you have specific cards that you are in need of (i.e. birthday, wedding, anniversary, sympathy).
RSVP by Thursday, May 19 so I am sure to have enough materials cut and ready for you to create!
Hope to see you on May 21! Thanks for stopping by!
