One Colour not in short supply in the Stampin Up Colour Range is Green........and with St Patricks Day just around the corner I started to play with different green colour combinations to make a card.
However instead of one for St Patricks Day I ended up making a Mothers Day Card.
I love using scraps of leftover cardstock or papers, so with the green I trimmed off the side of the second layer of this card I used it on the front of the card to draw more attention to the flowers.
The other thing I loved about making this card was I got to use my paper piercing mat. Until I brought this (it is part of the Mat Pack sold by Stampin Up) I don't think I had ever really used paper piercing in my card creations, now I use it whenever I can , it is especially good to add that extra touch when I feel that my card is missing something.
