"Mom" Shaped Card

If you haven't yet, please take a second to enter my 400 follower giveaway!

I have this cute shaped card to share with you today. If you are a regular visitor of my blog, you know I LOVE shaped cards! :)
I created this card using my Gypsy and Nate's ABCs for the font.  I created the card to fit in a 3 1/2" x 6" envelope I have an overabundance of! I took the shadow and welded the letters together.  Then I flipped it to make the back of the card base. I cut the letters using this adorable paper from Heidi Grace.

I used my Bow-Easy to tie this bow.  It has like four loops tied with pink sheer ribbon from Dollar Tree.

I added some gel pen stitches about the shadow and a few pink rhinestones. Simple but charming!

Here are the last few rhinestones. Love them.  

I used white card stock for the card base.  As you can see I hid the contours on the center of the "o" on the bottom "mom" so there's not a hole when I'll be writing.

The sentiment stamp is from Craft Warehouse. It's a Studio G stamp from last year. Take a look in your local $1 bin... there can be some adorable stamps in there! :)

Cheryl,

You are so clever!!! :) I don't know why I don't make more shaped cards (maybe because I don't know how to use my Gypsy yet! ;). And your bow is incredible!!!!! I guess the bow easy is worth getting!

Thanks so much for sharing,

Jennifer
