MFT Wednesday Stamp Club: Hope for Mom!

After an email conversation with a fellow stamper, I was once again reminded of the importance of balancing my love of this craft and my family, specifically my mom as she continues her cancer treatments with an upcoming surgery sometime in February or March. I know that I haven't told her how proud I am of her strength, her courage and her ability to stay positive day after day, so I decided to make this card for her to express my admiration and love for her. Ok, let's get on with the card as I'm a bit verklempt as I write this.


I used this week's sketch from MFT's Wednesday Stamp Club found HERE and combined it with Die-namics Girly Graphic Tee Die & Stamp Set which hasn't seen ink once since I bought it months ago when we first learned of mom's breast cancer diagnosis.

Here is a bit more detail of the new Die-namics Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose and Leaf-Filled Flourish dies surrounding the personalized tee at front and center. I used a combination of kraft cardstock for the outer leaves of the rose and black felt for the rose center. I love how easily the felt rolls and fills in the center of the bloom. You can see 'MOM' peeking out from either side of the tee, a strip of kraft cardstock 7/8" wide stamped with 'MOM' from the Girly Graphics Tee Stamp Set.

Finally, the inside of the card where I'll write a personalized note to mom. Here you can see the same 7/8" strip of kraft cardstock stamped with 'MOM' as the card front. A simple black fishtail tab from Die-namics LLD Accent It - Labels and Tabs adds just the right touch to pull things together on the inside.

I hope you have a chance to play along with this week's sketch (MFTWSC107) and maybe even send that card off to someone you love...just because. ♥
