Make My Monday: Mother's Day

Welcome back to another week at Make My Monday! We're still looking for spring cards, and this week we'd like the main focus to be Mother's Day. If you do not have a mother, please make us a thank you card for a female in your life! :)

I've been playing around quite a bit lately with a technique that I love that has turned into something else. You all know how I love to do punch window cards where the top layer is dimensionalized and a sentiment or image are stamped underneath. See here, here, and here. Well, I recently started to embellish the negative of the punch/die as well. See here. SO pretty!! And perfect for mom!

Here's my card~


It's so clean, simple, and easy! If you'd like to know how to do this, give me a holler--email me! Maybe I'll semi-bring-back Technique Tuesday tomorrow and tell you how to do this. It's fun, easy, and packs a huge visual punch!

I cannot wait to see the fabulous creations you all turn out this week--and for more astounding inspiration, please visit my fellow DT members! Happy stamping! :)

Hi Mynnette, just realised I'd lost you as Google Friend Connect has disappeared from your blog.
Gorgeous cards you've done lately too and love them all.
You may like to know that I did a post about following without the linky tool which is how I'm now following you after issues when trying to join the new linky thing.
It really is very easy and you'll find it just a few days back. The Google Friend issue only affects those bloggers without a google blogger blog.
Have a good week.
Hugs, Fliss xx

I love this card too Mynnette, it is awesome, love the image and how you cut out that frame.. Must remember this :)

Karen said...

Mynette this is so gorgeous! Would love to see a tutorial on this to know how you made it - if you stamped before dry embossing the panel or before you cut the shape out etc! hugs Karen x
