Today, I share a nontraditional Mother’s Day card. Since moving to Mesa, Arizona, almost three years ago, I am fascinated by cactus. You can imagine I love Stampin’ Up!’s Cactus Cuties Stamp Set and the coordinating Cactus Builders Bunch. Find these products on page 66 of Stampin’ Up!’s January-June 2022 Mini Catalog.

Cactus Cuties Mother’s Day Card
I used the slimline card design.
The base measures 8 1/2 inches x 7 inches. Score at 3 1/2 inches.
Paper choices include Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green, Artfully Composed 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper
Sentiment comes from the Happy & Heartfelt Stamp Set

Butterfly Brilliance Mother’s Day Card
The emboss resist technique provides awesome results. Here’s an outline of how this card comes together.
Place the Butterfly Brilliance stamp onto the Stampartus.
Ink the stamp with Versamark ink.
Stamp the image onto Basic White card stock.
Pour White Embossing Powder on the card. Shake off the excess.
Heat the image with the Heat Tool.
Choose an ink color. Use the Blending Brushes to apply ink to the image. With a paper towel, gently rub off excess ink. (I used the new In Color of Fresh Freesia.)
The images should “pop” on the paper leaving you with white butterflies.
Add any sentiment and embellishments you choose. For this, I embossed the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment from the Dressed to Impress stamp set in white on Basic Black card stock.
This card works for a variety of occasions. I can see it as a sympathy card, a birthday card, thinking of you, and more.
