Since Mother’s Day is coming up, I decided to do another FREE card pattern for this week’s Make It Monday. This pattern is from our now retired Originals Card Pattern Book and is called Winning Combination. As I’ve done in the past, I altered it a tiny bit so that my stamped image would fit properly. Always feel free to alter to your needs!

I chose to use the *NEW* Amazing Mother Stamp Set for today’s card. There are 2 other new Mother’s Day Stamp Sets being offered right now, but I’ve been using this one to create a variety of cards already (it’s my favorite!) I’ve been mailing out bunches and bunches of handmade cards during this social distancing time and thought it would be nice to send all my wonderful mom friends a card this year. So this stamp set has gotten a lot of use!
To add some texture to the card, I used the Light Candy Apple Cardstock and debossed with the *NEW* Quilt Embossing Folder. I love the subtle texture it adds. And apparently others love this embossing folder too because it’s already on backorder and it’s only May 4th! Don’t fret though, it’s anticipated to be back in stock by mid-May.
