Mother's Day Card and Blog Hop

Welcome to the third day of the Blog Hop with the Crafty Power Blog and Perfect Paper Crafting!
(There are awesome giveaways...!!! See instruction below!)

I made a mother's day card with selfmade paper and paper/motive from the Domestic Goddess collection from 7Dots Studio and I will show you the tutorial of it.

Just a view words about the materials I used.
I used a piece of handmade paper I made with paint sprays and stencils by myself and papers from 7 Dots Studio (Domestic Goddess). To cut the papers into layers I used the tool perfect layers from Perfect Paper Crafting and a cutter. The perfect layers are great to cut the papers correctly and to make multiple layers. I tried the perfect layers for the first time and I'm enthusiastic how easy and useful they are. Here you can read more about the use of them. For fixing papers I used the E-Z Dots permanent Refillable Dispenser from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I rounded the edges with the crop a dile corner chomper.

The pic collages shows you the development process.

1) the basics I used
2) cutted out the motive and fixed it with the E-Z Dots permanent Refillable Dispenser from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
3) used the perfect layer no.1 (1/8) for a perfect cut
4) rounded the edges
5) fixed the paper on the second layer
6) cutted the paper with perfect layer no.2 (5/16)

7) fixed a tag and the paper on paper for another layer
8) used perfect layer no.1 (5/8)
9) sewed zig zag for the title
10) fixed paper for the last layer
11) used perfect layer to cut out the background perfectly
12) now finishing with sticker & co

For the decoration of the card I used some stickers from Domestic Goddess. I finished the card with black splashes and some words and stickers.
