The World's #1 Mom


Okay, I know most people say that they have the World's #1 Mom; however, I know that I do for a fact.  Heck, the woman gave birth to 14 kids...say no more.  hahaha  So I dedicate this card to my mommy and to all the wonderful, patience, kind, caring mommy's in the world.  We need more like you!!

Again, I was playing on my Cameo and came up with the idea of creating a "blue ribbon" card.  I thought about what it would look like and then bounced some wordart ideas off Paulette over at Create with TLC and she designed the perfect topper for my card.  Thanks again, Paulette!!

Here's my creation (featuring Paulette's wordart)...

World's #1 Mom
My apologies...still working on my camera lighting.  I live in a cabin sorta.  I cut all my cardstock out on my Cameo and used a Cuttlebug to emboss the top layer of my cardstock.  I then used the folded paper flower technique and made the medallion.  I cut my out my wordart and mat using my Spellbinder's circle diecut.  I finished it off my adding Stickles around the edges of the medallion and circles.  It was a very simple card to put together, but I think it is elegant and my mom will be happy to get it.

I hope this inspires you to tell your mommy how much you love her.

Thanks for looking and commenting.
