Happy Hedgehogs for Mothering Sunday

Last week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa project was the non-stamping version of this card I made for Mothering Sunday.

This card uses the Happy Hedgehogs Bundle (Happy Hedgehogs Stamp Set & Hedgehog Builder Punch) from the Mini Catalogue.

The colours for the cardstock is the same as the class project, with added Early Espresso and Crumb Cake stamping.

Using Stampin’ Write Markers, I coloured the leaves and flowers, then went over them with a Blender Pen. I also used a Blender Pen on the hedgehog prickles.

For the toadstools, these were stamped, coloured using an inkpad and Blender Pen and then fussy cut.

The green grassy area is created using Pear Pizzazz and a Sponge Dauber. This has coordinating Baker’s Twine wrapped around and a bunny ears bow.

A touch of sparkle is added to the flowers with some Wink of Stella.

Again, using the Lovely You Stamp Set and the Double Oval Punch, the sentiment is layered and added.

As the card was being hand delivered, the toadstools were layered and the hedgehog was raised up on double-stacked Dimensionals.

Finally, some Pearls are added to the centre of each flower.

This card has a few hidden meanings. Not only was it Mothering Sunday, it would also have been my Dad’s Birthday, the second without him. As you may have heard me mention before, Dad loved nature, so this is a nod to his Birthday as well as celebrating Mum.

Plus, Dad was allergic to mushrooms, so the toadstools (mushrooms) are a little reminder of him too. He would have appreciated the humour!
