Mom’s Day: Cosmos with a hidden message

Sending Hugs 2019

Here’s a Mother’s Day card with “Mom” hidden within it. Can you see it? I was going to save this post for Saturday but decided, why wait?!

This card features Simon Says Stamps Cosmos Background Stamp colored in with copic markers.

The following picture makes it easier to see the word “mom” within the background. I love using this technique.

Supplies: Altenew Bold Alpha Dies, Simon Says Stamps Cosmos Background Stamp, Gina K Amalgum Ink, Simon Says Stamps Sentiment Labels Dies, Concord & 9th Retro Petals Turnabout Stamp, Versafine Onyx Black ink, Altenew Crystal Clear Embossing Powder, Wink of Stella Glitter Pen, Altenew Artist Markers Set D (which includes: Cosmic Berry, Rose Quartz, Purple Wine, Puffy Heart, Mocha, Rocky Shore, Sand Dune, Volcano Lake, Lagoon).

How I Made It: I stamped the Cosmos background onto Neenah Solar White, Classic Crest, #80 card stock using Gink K Amalgum ink. I then colored in the flowers using the alcohol Artist Markers. Once that was complete, I cut from NSW #80 card stock 3 sets of the word “mom” using the Altenew Bold Alpha Dies. I glued 3 layers of each letter together. I then centered and placed the letters m and o on the card front and die cut. I then die cut the last m. I glued the floral letters on top of the white card stock letters. I then glued the card front onto a card base made of Neenah Solar White, Classic Crest, #110 card stock. Once that was in place I added the letters M-O-M back into the card front making sure all the lines of the flowers matched. While that dried I heat embossed the sentiment onto NSW #80 card stock using Versafine Onyx black ink and Altenew Crystal Clear embossing powder. I adhered the sentiment down using foam tape.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Welcome and Hi there! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. To give you a little background about myself, I am a Christian, have been married for 33 years to my wonderful husband and I have two beautiful, adult, married daughters who are dear to me. I love to craft and find it relaxing, challenging, and a way to express a deep desire to create and make things with my hands. In the past my greatest joys in creating came from cross-stitching and sewing (I was a design major in college). But now I find it in paper-crafting, more specifically in card making. My other passions are bike riding, weight training, chocolate, and ice cream.
