Happy Mother's Day

Now that it's April, Mother's Day is right around the corner.  I used the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches to put together this adorable card for the occasion.

Happy Mother's Day card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn
The bunny duo is from Lawn Fawn's Hello Baby set.  I colored the bunnies with Copic markers and cut them out with the matching dies. As usual, I couldn't resist adding a bit of white flock to their cute little cottontails!  I found a long scrap of patterned paper from my Beachside paper pad to use as a background for the bunnies.  It was matted on coordinating cardstock, then adhered to a pale green card base.  I used a grass border punch to make a strip of darker green grass for grounding the bunnies.  After stamping the "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment from the very versatile Happy Everything set on the grass strip in aqua pigment ink, I set it on the cardfront, across the patterned paper panel.  The bunny pair was arranged on top along with a teeny, tiny die cut pink heart.

Materials Used:
Hello Baby and Happy Everything stamp sets, Hello Baby dies, Beachside 6x6 paper pad (Lawn Fawn); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Aquamarine ink (Avery Elle); Spring Moss, Hawaiian Shores, and Sweet Blush cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Grass border punch (Fiskars); white flock (Stampendous); foam tape
