Mother's Day card

A Mother's Day card. 

This is a quick and easy card but always popular.

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with purple card and white embossed card. I embossed the white card with a Crafts Too embossing folder. I die cut the shoes with a Tattered Lace die and the flourishes with a Cheery Lynn die. When making cards like this I cut the coloured card, (in this case the purple card) to size then cut the die cut embellishments in the centre of the square to save on card. I printed a sentiment and die cut it with a Go Kreate scalloped oval die and then cut the next size in the nesting set in purple to mount the sentiment. I completed my card with flat backed pearls.
