Motherhood: A Sheltering Tree, Stampin’ Up

Hey all you stampers! I thought I would give you one more lovely idea for a fairly simple, but gorgeous Mother’s Day card 🙂

This card has lots of layers, which makes a huge impact. But you could use this for SO many other card styles as well. You could even switch out the color scheme to blues, or a tone on tone neutral version.

I will say what makes the card is the sponging on the edges….it really gives a feel of so much beauty and effort with a very simple technique.

There is much more info on the video, so I hope you’ll give it a glance!

As always I love to hear your suggestions and comments, so please drop me a line below,

and until next time…….Stay Crafty !!
