Pink and Green Mother's Day Hanging Card

This is the card I made for both my mum and my mum-in-law. It is also my entry to this week's Pink Elephant blog challenge, the theme of which is Spring.

Three panels were cut from dark brown card using the Label 3 die. A panel of the Whisper paper from the Basic Grey Sultry paper pad.

The two sentiment toppers were created by stamping the 'Just For You' circle sentiment, from the Papermania Just For You stamp set, twice, using Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink and cut out using a circle Nestabilities die. These were both matted onto a larger pink circle and a brown scalloped circle, also cut with the Nestabilities die.

The 'Happy Mother's Day' circle sentiment was created in Word and cut out using a Nestabilities circle die, and adhered over the 'Just For You' sentiment.

For the centre panel, the Waiting Tilda image was stamped using the Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and coloured using the Copic Sketch pens.
(Hat: RV06, RV34, N3; Jumper: YG07, YG17; Trousers: E35, E57, N5; Hair: Y00, Y17, E35; Skin: E00, E02, E11, R20).

The image was cut out using the Nestabilities Label 3 die, and matted onto a hand-cut panel, made by cutting around the outside of the same die with a craft knife. This was then matted onto the brown label shape.
For the reverse side of the hanging card, the letters to spell out 'MUM' were die cut using the Sizzix Sizzlets Bounce die cuts cut from pink and brown card and matted onto white and pink panels cut using the Labels 3 Nestabilities dies. This in turn was matted onto panels of the Polished and Dressy papers from the Sultry paper pad and green paper.

A pink paper flower was attached to each of the panels and a silver Papermania shimmer dot was added the their centres.

Holes were punched to join the three panels together and threaded with olive green organza ribbon.
