Drapery Fold -Ornate Garden Designers Series Paper

 Recently I held a virtual Drapery Fold card class and this was one of my samples.

I decided to use some Gold Foil for my mat as it brought out the Gold in the pattern of the Designer Series Paper.  For the image I decided to use a gold hoop to draw attention to the flower.

ICS Blog Hop - April 2021 - Jar of Flowers


 Welcome to the ICS Blog Hop for April 2021!

This month our theme is "It;s A Girl Thing" and we are showcasing cards for the lady or girl in your life.

I have chosen to make a Mother's Day card for my mother who I haven't been able to visit for almost a year and a half due to Covid and travel restrictions.  I am so hoping that I will be able to visit her soon.

I have used a number of different stamp sets for my card, however the floral focal point is from the Jar of Flowers set in our Annual Catalogue.  The flowers are coloured with a varitey of Stampin' Blends.

Here is the inside of the card:

The products used for my card are listed below.

Hydrangea Hill

I am really going to miss the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper.  It makes it so easy to make a very attractive card with the Designer Series Paper.  For this card I used a sheet with the flower design on the bottom...so easy!

Using the Ornate Layers dies for the frame with the greeting inside really jazzes up the sentiment, along with a double bow.  Thanks to Stamp with Shel for the card inspiration.
