A Delicate Aster Kind of Card

I believe this to be the last of the Mother's Day cards that I made for the fundraiser at my work.  There could always be a stray set of photos which haven't been edited, but I think this is it.

I'd mentioned earlier this week that I always thought these asters were a bit prickly in shape, but this set of cards demonstrates why I've come to love my Heartfelt Creations Delicate Asters dies.

I used an older Heartfelt Creations border stamp and gold ink to add the filigree to the left of the card and lots of pearl elements to embellish and accent these cards.

The set really turned out to be lovely and somethig I thoroughly enjoyed making.  I am hoping that the receipients of these cards felt special and cared for too!

I'm linking this card up with the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge Simon Says Flowers

Word Art Wednesday's  Challenge #230-231 Anything Goes

I thought I'd share a few photos of the cards sale at my work.  It was a very good idea and something fun to do.  I'm pleased we were able to help those who help our soldiers.

These cards were made by Bonnie Grassi, the person who led the fundraiser and a very creative sister at my workplace.  She's so creative and these cards are lovely.

In the end, only two cards were left unsold.  I am unsure who had more fun - us as crafters or the people who purchased the cards.

Our beneficiary was Soldiers Angels who support our troops and send care packages to soldiers overseas  A fantatic charity that I had the pleasure to join.  Check them out at the link provided.  Have a fantastic day!


  1. Sure is pretty and delicate, I like those at the card sales at your office too!

  2. Pearls, swirls and wonderfully layered flowers...priceless. Thank you so much for posting this lovely creative art in the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #230-#231 - Anything Goes.
    Blessings, Carole

  3. Beautiful cards and so glad the sale of them went really well - no surprise because they are all gorgeous! TFS

  4. Beautiful cards, but the pink asters stole my heart--stunning!

  5. I just came across your beautiful Mothers Day Aster cards and wanted to tell you how simply beautiful they are! I love the colours, and they do look like the Asters growing in my garden! I am hoping to buy some of those dies you used so I can make my own. My mum has passed away now but I can make the cards for ot
    her occasions. Thank you so much.
    New Zealand,


Thank you so much for your kind words. Isn't it fun to encourage one another, even from a distance?
