Mother's Day Delights

Hi!! It's Sandie here today with a little WOW! Embossing inspiration for you. This month our theme is Anything Goes and you can find all the details on entering our challenge over on THIS POST

I just LOVE making cards with coordinating treat boxes. They are so easy to do and they make such a wonderful gift. We've already had Mother's Day in Ireland the UK but it appears the rest of the world will be celebrating on May 12th. 

For the card I started with a pink base - sized at 105mm x 148mm. I used Victorian Velvet distress ink and the Vintage Wallpaper background stamp to create the bottom panel and I used an embossing folder for the design on the top panel. The butterfly is from the Simply Amazing clear stamp set and I've stamped it out with distress ink and heat embossed it with clear gloss powder before trimming it out with a scissors. The 'Happy Mother's Day' sentiment is from the Everyday Sentiments set

Again, I used Victorian Velvet distress ink and the Vintage Wallpaper stamp for the treat box. I used the tutorial over on Splitcoast Stampers for the box, but I changed it up a little to suit my projects. For the front panel I used the cameo and frame from Simply Amazing and layered it on top of some cheesecloth and white lace. To finish it off I added some little pearls, and white ribbon to close the box. 

That's it from me for today! Don't forget to check out the March Anything Goes challenge for your chance to win 12 embossing powders in a handy carry case!
