Happy Friday, crafty friends! This is Julissa of Paper Gems by Jules on the blog today sharing a card for those exceptional women in our lives! As Mother's Day approaches, it's a great time to build your card stash to celebrate the women who mean everything to everyone. This card is dedicated to them!
This card features the new kit: The Very Best Gal, that can customize any woman in your life. I paired it with Aleah Girl and gave her a little natural grey look. To add to the background, I used the Plaid Builder Stencil set to connect the colors.

Distress Colors: Tumbled Glass & Bundled Sage
To create the background, I started by stamping the titles my friend has: Aunt, Sister, Grandma and Mother. Then I line up the stencil over the image and secured it with washi tape. I started by using the Tumbled Glass Distress ink and avoiding the words.
Using the second stencil, I lined up the first color and added the Bundled Sage. In order to create the plaid look, you now how to do the same procedure vertically.
For the vertical version, I used the same two Distress Inks. Once done, I found to other pieces of colored card stock to layer under the stamped background.
Now for Aleah, I colored a fussy cut her out. Using foam tape, I adhered her to the left side of the words. I then stamped and die cut the phrase from The Very Best Gal stamp kit and adhered it using foam tape again.
Lastly, I adhered it all to a white card base. So if you're making a card for an amazing aunt or gorgeous grandma, you know you can use this kit to customize any of your cards. And if you've a special guy... check out The Very Best Guy stamp kit too!
