Mother’s Day is coming up soon and the new release of Flourishes stamps will make it easy for you to create gorgeous feminine cards. Today the first set being showcased is called Love and Lace. It was designed by Lauren Pope along with a matching background called Antique Lace.

For my sample I stamped the image circle in brown ink on white cardstock, cut and embossed it with a Standard Circle die and layered it on a piece of Kraft cardstock, cut and embossed with a Fancy Tag 3 die. The wreath image of Love and Lace was stamped in pink ink on white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Standard circle die, then adhered first on a slightly larger Kraft circle, then a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Tear Drop Circle Nestabilities die.

Part of a sentiment from Love and Lace was curved on the stamp block, then stamped in brown ink on the bottom of the pink wreath. Rhinestones were added on the outer edge of the pink wreath.

A piece of patterned paper was cut and embossed with the smallest of the Grand Square Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded, then stitched before Ribbon was threaded through one of the Tear Drop circle holes and tied around the patterned paper square. The layers were adhered to the card base, Kraft cardstock cut and embossed with the smallest Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die.

Since I only used part of the sentiment on the card front,  I added the entire sentiment on the inside of the card. The background was stamped in pink on white cardstock and cut and embossed with the bigger heart die from Home Sweet Home.
