Friends With Flair

Hello everyone!  Today I have a card to share with you that I made for my mother for Mother's Day.  This card uses both {ippity} and Unity stamps.



I have this paper from paper Making Memories called Sabrina which is a collection of papers in pink, black and white. I have always loved this collection and thought it would work well for the card I wanted to create.  I started with the {ippity} stamp set,  Friends Plus Flowers = Friendship.  This is truly one of my favorite {ippity} stamp sets because of the fun flowers in this set.  I just think the flowers in this set are so versatile and are  the perfect shapes to easily cut out.  I stamped each flower at least once onto patterned paper, then cut them out.  Each flower was attached with a pop dot for dimension and pearls were used to accent the center of each flower.  For the sentiment, I used the Unity stamp set  A Mother's Love.  This inside of the card was stamped with light gray and pale pink flowers then I printed the sentiment on top of the stamping.  I was really happy with how the card turned out.  My only problem is that my mother does not like a dark card.  The only card  I made her that she didn't like had a black card base and she didn't like the black.  As a matter of fact she mentioned that to me this morning when we were talking on the phone.  So I hope she makes an exception this time!  

On another note, did you see the new {ippity} stamps that were released last night?  If not, check out out my post from yesterday to see all the new stamps sets and a card I made using the new sets.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today and Happy Mother's Day to everyone!
