This was a little bit of a tough make for me.

Not because making a shadowbox card is hard.

But because, I’m having a week where I’d really like to

have a chat with my mom and that’s no longer possible.

You’ll start with a light watercolor wash.

Then, add the sentiment.

We’re not a mushy sentiment kind of family.

In fact, we’d like a side of light snark with that please.

But underneath that, this sentiment tells the truth of it.

Next, add a random pattern of gold, heat embossed stars.

Stamp the Little Twinkle heart on Blushing Bride

and heat emboss in gold.

Then fussy cut the heart.

Tip: To give yourself an outline to work with,

place the stamp over the embossed image and lightly trace around the edge.

Finish with strips of Petal Promenade designer paper (retiring).

While this is meant as a tribute to my mom,

it’s perfect for Wedding, Anniversary or Mother’s Day.

      Thanks, Jay! I’ll add it to my display — like mom would have done at her house.

    Aw! Sorry to hear you are struggling this week with missing your Mom, Sara! I wish we were closer! While I am sure you found it difficult to create this tribute in some ways, I hope you have also taken some pleasure in great memories. I call them “smiling tears”! It is a gorgeous card! xxx

      Thanks, Cheryll! And yes, really they must be “smiling tears” as I couldn’t have had a better mom.
