Mother's Day Inspiration

Mother's Day is only a month away so time to create a special card for a special lady. Debbie Frost has designed this beautiful mixed media card.

Handmade by Debbie Frost

Transfer foils "Carnival" S57271
Clear Foam Pads S57126
8" x 8" White Card Blank S57340

Sky Blue Tinted Card A4250TINTSKYBLUE
Double Sided Polyester Ultra Sticky Sheet S56971

Sizzix Tim Holtz dies Detailed Butterflies & Wildflowers
Tim Holtz Distress inkpads
Versamagic inkpads
Craft canvas on a roll.


Debbie has used the Stix2 with Heat Range and has started by using the Tim Holz Wildflowers dies with the Various Materials Sheet.

She then sponged the die cut flowers softly with the pastel colours of the Versamagic pads before removing the paper backing sheet (a bit tricky but worth it!) and laying in place on the canvas which she had previously sponged with the Distress inks.

Now cover the flowers with Parchment Paper and heat with the Craft Iron. It's important to leave the Parchment Paper in place until completely cold or you will peel off your design too! This effect gives a beautiful water colour look. She then glued the piece of canvas to a piece of lavender card and mounted to the left of the Stix2 Card Blank.

Next she took a piece of the Double Sided Polyester Sheet and peeled off one backing paper to stick it onto a piece of card. Debbie then die cut two butterflies using the Tim Holtz Detailed Butterflies set using the solid butterfly die.

She also die cut two butterflies in Pink and Blue Tinted Card using the filigree die. She peeled off the remaining backing sheet on the "solid" butterflies and applied the hologram Silver Transfer Foil from the "Carnival" set.

What a simple but stunning effect!

Now simply lift the wings of the lacy butterfly and attach it to sit over the silver one. To finish Debbie has stuck the butterflies to the Card Blank along with the stamped sentiment and she has added some Clear Foam Pads covered with Transfer Foils as embellishments.
