More Mother's Day Cards!

Here are three more cards I designed for Mother's Day, each one is unique!  The first one uses a die cut that is in the shape of an apron.  I embossed the entire shape after it was stamped.  I then added stamped flowers that I cut out individually and attached using small glue dots for a little dimension.

The second card was distressed on the edges of the mat, the border strip that I cut from a new Martha Stewart punch, and the flowers made from a Tim Holtz die cut -- lots of fun!  

The third card used three embossing folders:  one for the top section of the card, one for the bottom section, and the third for the hat.  I used a circle punch, a scalloped oval punch and a smaller oval punch to make the hat.  Added a small width ribbon to the hat brim, punched a small flower, added a tiny yellow pearl in the center of the flower...and added the vintage lace around the center for texture.  

Let me know what you think!

Here is the Mother's Day card I made for my co-worker 's kids 
to give to their mom.  

I used a printed cardstock for the front, printed the words on my computer, cut out the tags and attached them to the flower stems using bright yellow-orange twine.  

The inside verse was placed over a pink cardstock mat that coordinates with the front of the card.

Let me know what you think!

Mother's Day Card

I made this card for one of my co-workers needing a Mother's Day card for his wife.  I like the coordination of the ribbon that has the brown border and the printed cardstocks.  I also was happy with the flowers and how well they balanced the card front.

Let me know your thoughts!
