Mother's Day Hat Card



If you are looking for the winner for my giveaway, please see post just below this one!
Hello everyone! I have a super sweet Mother's Day card to show you today! My mom LOVES frilly hats, so I thought this would be perfect for her. (MOM, if you see this, pretend like you didn't when I give this to you! LOL!) My mom is a follower of my blog so I'm sure she'll see this! LOL!
I welded 2 hats from Freshly Picked to create the card base and cut all the layers. I created the ruffle using crinkle ribbon, I pleated it and glued it to the backs of the cuts to get this look. If you want to see a wonderful tutorial on how to do this technique, check THIS video out at My Craft Spot.
I added the scallop strip to the top of the ribbon layers and added pearls using a Viva Decor Pearl Pen. I also cut a rose from Flower Shoppe and added that over the flat flower cut. To finish I hand cut the tag and stamped the sentiment.
I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
1. My Craft Spot- Mothers Day
2. RRRR- Mothers Day + ribbon
3. Go Fish
Thanks for looking and have a great night!
