FCCB #325 - Mother’s Day!

Happy Monday and welcome to another FCCB Monday challenge! Well, better late than never ๐Ÿ˜ณ... 

Challenge #325-Mother's Day
Make a project about Mother's Day.

This Weeks Sponsor


Create a project inspired by Mother's Day

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images. If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

For this week's challenge I've created a pretty Mother's Day card using the Kim Byers Mother's Day Cricut cartridge in Design Space for the gem diecut and the inside sentiment, free this week ๐Ÿ˜‰and a free card cutfile from SVGcuts - Mia's Card. There are so many amazing freebies to check out from our awesome sponsor!! I first used Canvas Corp Ivory cardstock to cut all my diecut pieces, and then used Distress Inks to create an ombre effect for the background. I sprayed  Tattered Angels Mists and added Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam for lots of pretty shine to the top cut of the card base. If you chose to heat the Glimmer Glam it bubbles, and I love that effect!

I cut the back of the gem from a blue foil paper and then added Emerald Creek Hammered Metal Embossing Powder to the top cut for a lovely metallic effect. I sprinkled SpiegelMom Scraps sequins around for the finishing touch.

Inside, I used a Pretty Cute Stamps Mother's Day sentiment along with the You're A Gem diecut from the Kim Byers cartridge. I cut it out of the vanilla cardstock, sprayed it with Tattered Angels Mists and then gave it a top coat with Emerald Creek Fractured Ice embossing powder. And, in case you're wondering - the background papers I used in my photos are from the 7gypsies Architexures paper line. I love the vintage look they give!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fantastic week ahead!!
