"A Smile for Mom" by Gerry van Gent


Happy Sunday Sizzix friends!

Maybe you have already guessed (by the title!) that my
blog post today is dedicated to my mom. Living far away from
my mom is not only hard for me but also hard for my mom.
That's why I love sending her photos - and of course, some of
the photos are scrapped like this one today.
Perfect present for Mother's Day!
I chose my favourite "scrap" canvas which is A4 size and
perfectly matching the Sizzix Big Shot Plus machine.

My very first step was to emboss the background paper.
I used the A4 Embossing Folder included in the Starter Kit.

The die-cut letter "a" was adhered underneath an epoxy sticker.

I die cut a few times both of these Decorative Bubbles 
using different papers. Then I began mixing them and 
creating embellishments for my photo.

The big flower was created by using both sizes Bigz Die flowers included 
in the Starter Kit - I die cut them so many times until the flower looked "full".
For the centre I hand made the rose by using one of the old dies (558504 Rose 3D)
I added a bit of Stickles.
