Scrapmart: Mother's Day Shaped Card

How was your (inter-) national scrapbook day?! I used Spellbinders™ Grand Nestabilities® in some of my projects :) To create a shaped card for Mother's Day, I pulled out LF-249 Grand Big Scalloped Circles and LF-114 Grand Circles.

Mother's Day Shaped Card by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Cardstock: The Paper Company (white) and American Crafts (yellow); Patterned Paper: Teresa Collins (Everyday Moments Collection); Bling: Want2Scrap; Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (LF-249 Grand Big Scalloped Circles, LF-114 Grand Circles, S5-115 Round About, S5-114 Spectacular Spin and  S4-352 Spiral Blossom Two; Adhesives: ScarPerfect (The Best Glue Ever)
Shaped card: I cut/emboss two LF-249 Grand Big Scalloped Circles #2 (the smallest die is #1) and adhered together so that I have a complete shape, not flat nor folded at the top or side. LF-114 Grand Circles #2 was cut/embossed to frame the card front.


Card base: I scored about 3/4" from the top on one of the die cut (this was my back piece) and adhered the scored area with my front card base.


Card front: I cut/embossed one of (from the top) S4-352 Spiral Blossom Two, S5-114 Spectacular Spin #2 and S5-115 Round About #3. Then I layered all and adhered onto the card base. The yellow bling was added to finish off the look.


Here's a second look at the card...I loved how it turned out! I hope my mom thinks so too!
