Flourishes lc.- A Mothers Hug

Hello friends,  today I am sharing a pretty card with you using the beautiful A Mother's Hug image from Flourishes lc.  It is perfect for so many occasions - Mothers Day included.  This set is available in Polymer Sets and Digital.

The A Mother's Hug image has been stamped onto Flourishes Classic White card stock, onto the Perfectly Pierced Classic Frames Die Set, using black ink.  Stamping through the Die gives the ability to use a partial image. I have used the Die as a stencil and sponged inside the die using Imagine Delicata Golden Glitz ink.  The image has been coloured using using Chameleon Pens. This in turn has been layered onto the patterned card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  


I have stamped the Sentiment onto Flourishes lc Classic White card stock using black ink.  It has then been cut/embossed using a Circle Die, also using it as a stencil, sponging around the inside edges using Angel Pink Ink and a sponge dauber.  This has been popped up onto a larger pink circle and adhered to the top left corner of the card front.

The card front has been layered onto a filigree Diecut to create a beautiful frame using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.   The layered card front is adhered to a pre-cut white card base.   A double bow and small Mulberry Paper Rose have been adhered to the front of the layered image, finishing off with some of the beautiful Want2Scrap white pearls.
