Here is the card that I made for my Grandma for Mother's Day. We celebrated Mother's Day and my birthday on the same day :). I made this pretty back ground paper using a 3x3 rubber cling stamp that I got that M's for a couple bucks. The rubber cling stamps are really nice. They stamp great and they mount on your blocks. Anyway I stamped it with Versamark ink and then used my violet/purple embossing powder and then my heat gun. I think you get a nicer background image when embossing rather than just stamping with colored dye inks. The nice thing about this, with a little creativity you can make it look like it was all one paper. I just cut those down to 2.5x2.5 and pieced 4 of them together, then used the ribbon to cover the seams. I kept the design for the front quite simple and used these sentiments from Scrappy Moms. I also used my Apron Lace at the top and bottom. And I am in love with the bling going around the circle. So pretty. My Gram really loves all the home made cards I make her. Hope you enjoy.
