Mom I LOVE you...

Mid-week greeting to you!
Today is my day over at The Rubber Cafe !    I today I'm playing a bit with the Extra Large Daisy stamp and have fell in love with it.   Such a sweet stamp, so I decided to create a Mother's Day card and matching gift bag, as it reminds me of my Mom and her favorite flower is the daisy.   With that in mind...
 I first stamped my Daisy onto a piece of paper and fussy cut it out to use as my base. I than stamped it again twice on two different pattern papers and cut them up and layered them together. 
I added a bit of vintage lace and felt to the top of that to soften it a bit. I embossed my card base and left it white to allow my daisy to pop and added a bit of paper to the bottom half. For my sentiment I used some scrapbooking canvas letters.

For the gift bag I used the same steps...but didn't have room for the full daisy so I cut it in half. I like the effect and plan to use it on a card. I added a doily to soften it and ribbons...and made little sentiment banners using the Pictures framed set.

     Now it is ready to fill with Mom's favorite candy!  I had so much fun making this and hope you enjoy it!  hugs, cherry
