Tea Together Mothers' Day Card

A sweet Mothers' Day card using the Tea Together stamp set and coordinating dies
This card is for my Mother-in-Law - here in Australia we celebrate Mothers' Day on the 2nd Sunday in May.

I'm not sure how celebratory she'll be feeling, or even how we can best celebrate but this is a start.  In the last month she buried her first born child  (and only daughter) and turned 90 two days later during an Easter spent in lockdown.

Despite the emotional devastation, she's soldiering on and constantly expressing her love and gratitude to the family.

Since she has very little sight left to her, I always try to make her cards texturally interesting.  So the white layer is embossed with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing folder and the cup is embossed with the retiring Country Floral embossing folder - I then coloured and cut out the cup and attached it to the saucer with some Mini Dimensionals.

I coloured the white Flax Ribbon by dipping it into a little bit of water dyed with several drops of Melon Mambo reinker and waited for it to dry before attaching to the card.

I shortened the length of the Stitched Label die by using this method.

The rose was stamped onto Crushed Curry card with Memon Mambo ink and then coloured with watercolour pencils and an aqua painter before cutting out with the coordinating die.

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
