Happy Mom's Day

Today's card was created for the current Less Is More challenge. I started with some simple kraft cardstock and treated it with my embossing buddy powder bag. I stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts Mother's Day stamp set using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white detail embossing powder from Recollections. Using a ruler and a Versamark dual tip pen I drew the lines on either side of the sentiment and heat embossed those. Using some large post-it notes I blocked of the sentiment and stamped the Deco Chalk flowers from Impress Cards and Crafts as well as some of the leaves and heat set those too. I added a few dots here and there for some additional balance and visual interest using my white gel pen. It was a pretty quick and easy card to do. I hope you like it!

Celeste, What a gorgeous card! Love your white on kraft design... and I am quite impressed by -- and just a tad jealous of -- those Versamark drawn lines. :)

Such a great design, kraft and white is lovely together. I think I have a VersMark pen somewhere I've completely forgotten about!
Thanks for sharing with us.
