Mother's Day Easel Card With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi everyone! It's just around the corner from Mother's Day and so I thought I would make a Mother's Day Easel Card using Cheery Lynn Designs Dies. It is also this week's challenge too, so check it out. This easel card base was made using the second largest "scalloped circle" It is about 5 inches which the size I typically like to use, but if you like a bigger card you can use the biggest "scalloped circle" which is around 6 inches around. I then cut the "scalloped circle" the 3rd largest in a lighter purple. It is about the same size as the "florence filigree doily". I die cut the doily out in white twice and saved all the pieces inside for later. 

The "sweet williams strip  flowers" were cut twice and all the centers were inked with dark distressing purple. There are different size pearls in the centers. Each flower the same size was layered on top of each other which will give you 4 flowers sizes per die cut run. The inside pieces of the "florence filigree" was originally white and I just inked both sides in green distressed ink.  The sentiment was from Microsoft Word and printed  in purple on white cardstock. The die cut is the third smallest "pierced stacker #4" Afterwards, I fussy cut around the die in a dark purple cardstock to enhance it a bit more. Place pop dots under the sentiment because this will be how the card will stand up later. 

Here is a closer view of the flowers and "flourish #17" leaves. They were die cut and then placed through the embossing machine to show the leaves lines. The "dandelions" were cut in white and then inked purple on the flower ends. 

I added a purple double looped bow on top and you can see it folds flat for mailing or placing in an envelope. Lots of occasions you can use this card for...Birthdays, Thank You, Wedding, Thinking Of You....and of course Mother's Day! 

Hope you enjoyed! 

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to check out this week's challenge Mother's Day for your chance to win $20 at the Cheery Lynn Designs Store. 

Im also entering this card to this week's Card Concept #54 Spring Flowers inspired using the color purple and the flowers. Im thinking this is a freestyle collage.
See you next week!
