I love mom with Joy Clair

Today's post is for a special post on Joy Clair blog for mom, be sure to check out what we all created. There are some beautiful cards on the post.

Then die cut the word mom from the woodgrain cardstock. I used my misti to stamp I love you on the pattern paper and on the first M so the sentiment would line up properly.

Then I placed the die cut letters on the card using foam adhesive and added some chunks of glitter for sparkle. After die cutting the letters I still had the panel with the die cut word MOM, so I made a second card to use the panel. Picked some pattern paper so that it would show through the words.
