Attic Boutique for a nostalgic Mother's Day Card

Attic Boutique Designer Series Paper is full of eclectic  designs that are made to remind you of days treasure hunting in the attic, or shopping at a quaint boutique.  I liked the paper so much, that I didn't want to add a lot more to my card, but still wanted it to be soft and feminine for mom. This pretty paper is only available for a few more days since it is in the Occasions Mini Catalog, which expires April 30th. 

My card base of Soft Suede cardstock was embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  I then added a piece of Very Vanilla 1/2" Seam Binding before adding my cut piece of Attic Boutique paper.  The paper was cut with my Big Shot and one of the Framelits Label Collection Dies.  A Pretty in Pink flower was punched with the Boho Blossom Punch, and accented with a neutral brad.  I also embossed my stamped sentiment, and sponged some Soft Suede ink to the edges for added dimension.

This is one of the cards I offered at this week's stamp class.  Some of the girls added an additional Framelits Label in Pretty in Pink behind their Designer Paper.  This offered a nice alternative to those wanting more color on their card.  So easy to change things up a bit with the 6 sizes of Labels Collection Framelits Dies to choose from.
