S & S Midweek Throwdown Challenge - Mother's Day Card

March is the month for Mother's Day Operation Write Home anyway!  The deadline for Mother's Day cards is March 31st so it is no surprise that the S & S Midweek Throwdown Challenge is to make Mother's Day cards, is it?  ;)

This card is made using a technique called "One Sheet Wonders."  The floral pattern was all hand stamped and then cut into specific pieces following a template.  You then match up these pieces with coordinating card stock, sentiments, and embellishments and wha-la you have 10 cards.  This is my first attempt at this technique and I wouldn't use it all the time but it is great for low mojo days, if you know what I mean!

The flowers were stamped in Regal Rose and Rose Romance and the leaves were stamped in Certainly Celery and Old Olive with a few Summer Sun ditties to fill in the blank spots.  The stamps are SU Watercolor Garden.  The sentiment is FREE and can be downloaded here.  The Certainly Celery card base was dry embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  The ribbon, flower punch and brad are all SU as well.

If you would like more information about the "One Sheet Wonder" technique just let me know by leaving a comment and I will be happy to send you a link to a tutorial.

Happy Stamping and God Bless!
