Springtime is here! Easter is this weekend and Mother’s Day is just around the corner. We have had lots of rain in Louisiana. April showers bring May flowers, right? Pecan trees like a long winters nap and are usually the last of the trees around here to produce spring buds. Well, the pecan trees are budding, so it’s time to plant our spring garden. I’m ready for some home grown fresh vegetables! When we moved into our house 20 years ago, we planted some climbing roses in our front garden in memory of my grandfather – he always had a rose garden. My first rose of 2019 is blooming!
Mother’s Roses coordinates perfectly with the garden themed kit AND it contains layers for added interest and dimension!
I featured elements from both kits on a set of springtime/Mother’s Day themed cards.
I printed the digital kits without resizing any elements and trimmed. I like working with a sketch and used instructions from one of the cards in Club Scrap’s card making Idea Deck.
The decks are no longer available in printed form, but Club Scrap now offers two digital formats that include thirteen card making formulas each with cutting instructions. (All available supplies will be listed at the end of this post.)
Card 1. Layered Roses
The layered roses are a cinch to trim with detail scissors. I also like to use my Silhouette Cameo to cut elements for cards, but I fussy cut the layers this time. A little foam tape and they make a beautiful focal image!
Card 2. May 2019
I trimmed elements using the measurements on the Idea Deck card and layered onto the card base. I inked the edges of the panels with Club Scrap Earth ink and a finger dauber, added some green pearls and Diamond Stickles for a little sparkle on the flowers.
Card 3. Birdie Darling
I just love the vintage images on this card. The background panels are just beautiful and I love the mother and child cut apart on the upper left. I trimmed the sentiment from one of the tags. I adore that sweet term of endearment! Some green pearl gems were added for interest.
