Altenew Painted Flowers for Mother's Day

For such a straight-forward card, this one uses a wide variety of companies' products.

Here's the supply list:
  • Stamps: Altenew Painted Flowers, CTMH Perfect Fit - Mom (retired)
  • Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
  • Watercolor: Tim Holtz cardstock, Holbein Water Color Paints
  • Accessories: MFT Frame Stitched Die, CTMH Artiste Cricut cut, silver rivets, Embroidery twine
I started by watercoloring blue over almost all of the 4.25 x 5.5" panel.  I concentrated the color along the top and right side.  Then I added splotches of orange and green.  When it was dry, I stamped the flowers so the leaves were generally where the green was.  I then angled the stitched frame die where I wanted it and ran it through my cuttlebug. I cut the black panel 1/8" larger than the floral panel and glued them together.

The sentiment label was cut from Artiste at 1.5" tall.  After I stamped the sentiment, I punched rivets through the ends and threaded thick embroidery floss through.  I added foam tape on the back, attached it to the floral panel, and taped the floss on the back.  More foam tape adhered the floral panel to the card base.

A few more Mother's Day cards to make this year and not a lot of time left to do them.

Until next time,


  1. Beautiful! Thanks for explaining - I wouldn't have guessed how you did this and it is brilliant!

  2. I loved this mother’s day card! I am sure your mom would have loved this card. This year we celebrated this day at my mom’s favorite event venue. She usually visits there with her friends. She was very happy with our efforts.

  3. Gorgeous, Becca - love seeing you create with your new stamps!

  4. What a gorgeous card, Becca, and I absolutely love the bouquet you made using the Altenew Painted Flowers set! Beautiful! Hugs!
