Mothering Sunday

this is a mothering Sunday card I made for a friendto give to her Mum.
the text is computer generated, I first embossed through my cuttlebug the circle garland to surround the MuM then I embossed with the birds & swirls folder but instead of using a B plate I used a perspex plate I have with a 2" diameter hole cut in the center this allows me to emboss without touching the circle garland area, neat eh! I think you could use an old B plate & just cut a hole in it with a drill & circle saw attachment but i could not swear by this as I have not done that, my bit of perspex is part of a number plat acrylic that DH had lying around & I had a eureka moment ages ago, the bottom is the MS punch & I finished with a hand made bow in brown & cream spot & a complimenting ribon in cream & brown spot on the bottom


  1. What a pretty card!!! I love it!

    Thanks for joining us this week at The Cuttlebug Spot! Look forward to seeing more of your work!


  2. I love this card. Great thinking on that embossing technique to keep the middle circle embossed by itself.

  3. This looks pretty with the circle embossing combined with the background embossing.

  4. That´s a wonderful card! And what a great idea to use the backside of the embossed paper - it gives a very elegant touch to your piece of art.

    Thanks for joining us this week!
