20 Minute Card ~

Hey there!  I have a few posts that will go up this week – I’ve been into the whole water coloring trend here lately, so I signed up for the Online WaterColor for Card Makers class.  If you haven’t already, you should sign up and learn some of these fun techniques!  While watching the first couple of videos and playing around making my step-daughter a birthday card, hubby asked for a Mother’s day card as well.  Since I only had an hour to make two cards, I opted for a CASE. 

I chose to CASE this card by my old teamie, Maureen Merritt. I still had the Stampin’ Up In Colors out from the last time I got crafty so I went with the color combo of Strawberry Slush (totally in <3 with this color!), Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding.  It really is so nice of those peeps at SU to come up with colors that go so well together!  {wink}

wanda mothers day 2014 I apologize for the quality of the photo – I took them with my phone and emailed them to myself.  Aaaannnddd promptly deleted them from my phone.  This is the worst one and the only one that went through the email properly.  :-/  I love the Mom word die from Lil’ Inker Designs, so even though my MIL got a card with this die for Mom’s day last year I went ahead and used it again.

wmd d    I cut the die out 4 times and stacked them atop one another.  It’s a much easier way to add dimension to these thin die cuts rather than trying to add foam tape to all the little places. 

    So that’s it for me today!  Since we are having a super crummy weather day here in Colorado (sleeting/snowing, freezing temps), I am headed to the cave to catch up on the watercolor videos and have a little fun time! 

    I hope all you mothers have a wonderful Mother’s Day!!
