Mother's Day card for Donna Salazar

It's a special weekend to celebrate the mother's in our lives. I'd like to wish each of you who are mom's a special day on Sunday. To celebrate, I've created this card for my mom. Donna's designs and products are so great to work with for shabby mixed media projects like this.

Mother's Day Card

Tips and Techniques
These sweet roses are created with the mulberry paper from Donna's Mix'd Media Stax 2 cut with her Spellbinder's Bitty Blossoms Dies, then brushed with gesso. 

Underneath the flowers, I've layered Donna's Mix'd Media Stax 2 Dictionary Paper and Want2Scrap Corrugated Board along with other delicate elements. 

Inside and out I dry brushed the background with gesso, then mixed Donna's Clearsnap Mix'd Media Inx Reinker into gesso and dry brushed that over top.

The edges are distressed with Donna's Distrezz-it-All by Zutter, then machine stitched.

I hope you've been inspired to grab your Donna Salazar products and created a card for a special mother in your life.

Beautiful beautiful card, love the soft colors and the twigs look amazing.. the first thing I thought of was the song... on a hill far away, stood an old rugged cross, the emblem of suffering and shame..and i love that old cross where the dearest and best for a world of lost sinners was slain... beautiful card..
