CTMH Postcard Perfect Mother's Day Card for the Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Welcome to GIRLplusPAPER and my entry for the Joyful Stars May 2018 blog hop!  If you have arrived here from Marie's blog, NJ Stamping Queen, you are on the right track. 

Today I am sharing a card that uses up even more of the scraps from my CTMH Postcard Perfect paper pack.  If you haven't heard of CTMH Postcard Perfect yet, it is the product suite that is being offered this month only by CTMH in celebration of National Scrapbooking Month.  I have created 7 scrapbook pages out of the paper pack and coordinating cardstock, and you can look back on my last post to see one of them if you'd like.  I do want to quickly add that my card was inspired by a Pinterest photo, and I can't give proper credit because the website was completely in Russian, or at least that is what it looks like to me!




To create the card, I started with a card base, and added a piece of Peacock Cardstock to cover the front.  I made 4 planks of wood out of the woodgrain piece of cardstock, and I inked the edges.  I then layered rectangles of Postcard Perfect vellum to create a base for my floral arrangement.  All of the flowers and leaves were cut out of the CTMH Flower Market cartridge.  What a phenomenal cartridge that is!

For embellishment, I added some twine from the Whimsy Ribbon pack, retired Cream Ribbon and some Gold Pearls in the centers of my flowers.  The center of the big poppy flower (totally not tropical right?) was cut out of a piece of CTMH Gold Glitter Cardstock.  To finish off my card, I added one of the many sentiments from the Short & Sweet stamp set.  That little, inexpensive stamp set really touches on so many occasions, and Happy Mother's Day fit so well on the woodgrain plank.  Of course, this card will best be given in person and not mailed!
If you would like to make your own card, I am sharing my Cricut Design Space file with you.  You will need the CTMH Flower Market cartridge though.  Here is the link, enjoy!
