A Mother`s Day Wish.

Good morning friends, followers and visitors.

This is my DT card for Poppystamp dies, I`m sharing if you`d like a peek.

 Sharing a card for "Mother`s Day" here in the UK it is Sunday 15th March..sad day for me really, this would have been my late Mum`s  90th Birthday..

Computer text..
Thought I would share a technique I love to do..I have used the Poppystamp "Woodland Heart frame" die to Emboss this shape onto my card, then used an embossing folder with the Die still in place on the card..To emboss the whole card front..
This is the card front already embossed and started cutting the heart inner away..add 3D foam tape to reverse to add dimension..  

NEVER place your cutting die face down!! to emboss in your folder...
Once you have embossed your heart (NOT CUT ...Just embossed)  leave the die in place on your card..Add to your folder..DIE facing  up with card on top.  Leave your folder OPEN.. add your embossing mats and plate.. all machine are different, so you might need more or less shims..Never force through die cutting machine.. 

I cut the woodland heart frame in brown and white card, adhered the brown to the embossed part, inked edges of white frame in pink, this I adhered to the top and bottom tips only..

Flowers are Poppystamp Arched poppies, centre cut`s  away, infilled after inking and glittering, a few swirls added from Beverly Vine.
My homemade stick pins, feathers  with a ribbon bow.. just see under the feathers  word "Love" from memory box open studio collection.

Thank you for stopping by, enjoy your day..Pam..

  30. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous Mother's Day card. Anxious to try out your how-to info on embossing w/die. I also lost my Mom in August and miss her so much.

  31. Hello Pam,
    I love the card you made today. It is so delicate and very feminine, a card any Mom would love to get. Thanks for sharing.

  32. Hi Pam,
    another really beautiful, and stunning creation yet again.

  33. This is stunning! Thanks for the tutorial in this excellent technique. It really made such an impressive look with the cutout, layers of the die, and the lattice embossed background. The die is such a delicate one, and your treatment on this card, shows it to wonderful advantage. It's hard when Mother's Day comes around. We celebrate in May & I make few M Day cards. Yours is just so very pretty. TFS

  34. Gorgeous card and fabulous technique Pam.....thanks for sharing. Looks so elegant.
