It is amazing to me how many spectacular cards have been created by using Stampin’ Up’s elegant Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper, among the dozens of cards I’ve seen this one by Sandy Hancock really stood out to me, it is simply elegant and I thought it was the perfect Mother’s Day card for my next card class. You can easily whip this up in 15-20 minutes, unless you don’t rush through the coloring like I did. Please don’t tell my granddaughter, Aliyah I went out of the lines, she is very fussy about that. Be sure to stamp your sentiment (from Dragonfly Dreams) BEFORE you run it through your Big Shot with the Simple Stripes embossing folder, oh the frustration I save you;)
