Enough waffling, down to business.
Today's cards are the ones that I sent to my Mum. I went vintage with the one from hubby and me. I used a picture that I downloaded from t'internet and printed onto vanilla Papermania textured cardstock and trimmed to fit a stamp-shaped panel. The papers are from a 12x12 Grace Taylor 'Vintage' stack from The Range. I mounted the stamp panel onto a shaped panel covered with fashion plate paper and trimmed with cream cotton lace (pleated onto a strip of DS tape) and pink satin ribbon from Paperchase. I coloured a pearl hatpin with a permanent marker and pushed it through the centre of the ribbon bow ** I always add a silver bugle bead to the end of my hatpins to prevent needle-stick injury, especially if the card is being posted** 'MUM' was cut from Papermania shimmer cardstock and adhered with foam pads. A WOC floral arrangement, heart shaped pearl embellishment (The Works) and a smattering of pink pearls completes the card.
