~For My Mom~




My Mom loves roses.



I ordered this set to create her cards.



*Papertrey Ink Year of the Flowers:Roses,Versamark ink,Stampendous detail clear embossing powder,Papertrey ink true black premium ink,Papertrey Ink Eyelet lace border die,Xyron,Teresa Collins World Traveler,Ranger Tim Holtz distress ink fired brick,black glitter,Georgia Pacific white cardstock,American Crafts cardstock for cardbase,Tim Holtz distress tool,Kaisercraft rhinestones*


This sentiment describes my Mom.


She's a hard worker, considerate, honest and generous.


The world is blessed to have her in it-


especially those who cross her path!

 

I loved using the resist embossing technique with these gorgeous flowers.




I kept rubbing the fired brick ink pad around until it was the vibrancy I wanted.



The hardest part, was revealing some of the "world wonders" on the DP layer, without losing my focus on the roses.


I kept moving around that panel, and trimmed away before I lost my nerve!



I used black glitter on the border die after running it through the Xyron.








I appreciate you stopping by today!
