Mother's Day Card DT Project By Rhon Marquess

May is for makin' according to Maymay & I've been wanting to learn to use Ranger's Distress Oxides. They seem like a lot of fun & a great multitasker for my stash. Check out this Mother's Day card I created where I use a Distress Oxide ink pad for ink dragging. 😊

7. Use AGG to adhere the black mat to the front of card base & 2nd white mat inside card base

*Don't forget to sign back of the card
*Use what you've got in your stash - could be decorative paper, purchased die cuts, etc
*We cut 8.5x11" cardstock in half to create card base; so why not make 2? All our supplies are out anyway, right? Simple & easy 2 for 1!
