Mother's Day Card | Graciellie Design - "You Go Girl"

Happy Friday!

It's Release Day at Graciellie Design and she's got another wonderful floral set ready to go just in time for Mother's Day...or any other day for that matter! I really like all of the sentiments in this digi set and these floral elements could be used for so many different kinds of cards!

I printed the image on watercolor paper and taped it to my heat proof cutting board. The image and background were painted with Altenew Watercolors and spattered with metallic paints. Once dry, I trimmed it to fit an A7-sized card front.

I wanted to try something a bit different with this card so I added some hand-beading and stitching. Using gold thread, I stitched small gold seed beads into the center of each flower and added a running stitch to accent the linework in the leaves. I also stitched the sequins in place by using the same beads. You can see the stitch details in the close-up photo above - it really adds dimension and a tactile quality to the card!

This color palette is a bit different for me and I'm please with the way it turned out! I hope you'll head over to Gracie's IG Page to check out all of the wonderful DT projects posting this weekend as she showcases this beautiful new set! Thanks so much and have a wonderful weekend!
