Cecelia Marie Morneau-DecoteauMom, words can't express how blessed I feel to have a mother like you. Your warm heart is a true treasure and you share it with everyone. Most people do not possess that kind of beauty, but you do!
Thanks for all you've done for me, all the love you have showered on me, and for being my mom. My wish for you today, and every day, is all the hapiness and joy you can hold! Happy 89th Birthday, Mom!
The card I made to celebrate mom.
I cut four chipboard panels 4x6", and painted them with black acrylic on both sides, joined them with black gaffers tape, then painted the remaining exposed edegs. On an excursion to Temecula, I purchased a large sheet of vintage ladies from TheStampin Post. I had them tucked away to use for this project. Cutting out each image, 3 1/4x5", I used Golden Gel Medium from Dick Blick's Art Store to affix them, a different lady was used on the front and back of two of the panels. On the other two panels I stamped birthday greetings and "I Love You" in gold, embossed them, then sprayed all of the pages with gold webbing. (This close-up shows the webbing and trim.)The panels with the ladies were decorated with gold strips of Magenta Style Stickers (also from The Stampin Post). Thin decor lines around the pictures took a bit of time but the end result was well worth it. I used another package of the stickers, gold floral squares, to further decorate the corners.
