Mothers Day Card

Hello friends, I haven't posted at all this week. Last week I bought myself a set of Prismacolor markers. For those who may be unfamiliar with these they are an alcohol marker similar to Copic markers but much less expensive. I love these so much I played with them daily. I've made a lot of images and today I decided I needed to start using them.

Today's card I made for my Mother-in-law, whom I adore.

You may remember this green card stock. I used it for my Mothers Easter card. I cut a piece if green swirly vellum I found at AC Moore. I think it must have been made for this card stock because it's a perfect match. I glued the vellum to the crease side of the card using a 1/4" wide line of Zig two way glue. I cut the green frame on my Cricut using the Storybook Cartridge. I then glued the tulip image on top. I forgot to mention that I had heat embossed the tulips. To do this I need to use an embossing pen. I covered just the tulips and leaves with the pen. I didn't want the white background embossed. I must say the pen worked very well.

Until next time, Jana
