I am creating this card for my dear Mom who lives in Taiwan. I am missing her so much.
Altenew-PaintaFlowerRose-RoundedFrameDieSet-FineAlphaDie Set-Virginia#4

I stamped Paint-a-Flower Rose in three colors and die cut the focal point with Rounded Rectangles Die. I then colored the image with Artist Markers and clean-embossed the entire piece.

To highlight this colored piece, I popped up the extra dies underneath. Basically, it's another take on Spotlighting technique.

I die cut the word MOM from Fine Alphabet Die Set since the size and style fit this design perfectly.
