With Spring Come Mothers Day!

My mother loved hummingbirds! We would give them to her on special occasions. If I found a card with on for Mother's Day, that was the perfect card. Today I have a card made completely with handmade papers using the Arnold Grummer's Papermill Complete Kit. If this is your first time hearing about hand made paper with Arnold Grummer's Papermill Complete Kit, be sure to watch the Basic Paper Making video making paper couldn't be any easier. 


This past weekend was a paper making weekend! 
I usually start with paper from out paper shredder. 


I made papers with Arnold Grmmer's Gold DustArnold Grummer's Iridescent Flakes and specialty pulp.

The purple, pink and green papers were made with scrapes or of color cardstock.



The flowers were made pressed in a silicone mold the Hummingbird and heart were made with cookie cutters in the Arnold Grummer's Papermill. 


Here is my finsihed card. The base is a full pink sheet of paper folded in half.  Layered with a portion of a purple sheet with decorative punched edges. The hummingbird molded with a cookie cutter, flower that was made in a silicone mold and a leaf torn from a sheet of handmade green paper!

Here is a perfect Mother's Day Card!
