a pop-up Mother's Day card. What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday, #257

Well, it's so small (atc size, 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches), it's more like a gift tag:

Gelli plate print backgrounds--made the lace to match, can you tell?
You can see the lace detail in the print if you look closely.  
The stamps are from Something Tattered

Rose image from Altered Pages, "merci" stamp Something Tattered

ugh, I really don't like my lettering.  Working on that . . . fortunately, my
mother didn't mind a bit!  She was over last night, and saw her flowers, so . . .
she got her flowers (plants) a little early this year!
That's it for now, working on some other stuff too, but can't show yet, you know how
that goes.  Happy What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday to you--see you around
Julia's Stamping Ground!

Hi Trisha
Wonderful gift tag/card. I don't think any of us like our own lettering. (smile) I think yours is perfect!

Great idea on how to match your lace! It may be a small card but it's very pretty. I'm sure your mom loved it!

Mary said...

Gorgeous card. Thanks for visiting my blog. Yes, I will show the project, but it's for a design team I'm on, so it will have to wait until Mid-June. Happy Crafting!

I like your lettering, too! SO pretty with the pop-up rose. I love using lace as a stencil , too. leaves such a nice imprint.

Your card is sooo pretty - I love the colors you used!!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

You made a fantastic card for your mother, and it went perfectly with the gift you said you gave your mom. That is more like a gift than a card. Yes, I see the lace in the gelli print. And I agree that it saddens me, too, when people don't sign their cards. Thanks for your visit and happy WOYWW from #5.
