Try It Out Tuesday #17 -- For Mom
Hi Everyone and Happy Tuesday! :) It's Tuesday so that means it's another Try It Out Tuesday Challenge here at Susana's Store Blog. I'm a little late with my challenge today, I've been dealing with some health issues, but better late than never, right? :) Our challenge this week was to create a gift set for mom for mother's day. I lost my mom to ovarian cancer almost four years ago so this is for my mother-in-law. I decided to make a gift card holder (you can find directions HERE). It's super easy to do and makes a really fun gift.
I decided to ink up this adorable Julia With Flowers image from the oh so cute Anki's Sweethearts Line available exclusively at Susana's Store. I inked the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, stamped it onto PTI cardstock, and colored it with copics. I added some Shimmerz to the flowers and to the heart on her dress for some added sparkle. All my cardstock is SU (Barely Banana and Pretty in Pink) and my design paper is Debbie Mumm. I added a pink ribbon and some Pearls in the corner for a finishing touch.
It's a pretty simple little project, but a cute way to package a gift card, me thinks. Well, that's it from me today. Make sure to scroll down to see the other amazing creations the rest of the DT came up with.
Hugs, Christine :)
