The day when I get to be pampered and treated well and showered with gifts.
(Hope my family reads this so they know what I expect. hee)
It's also the day I get to be super extra sweet to my Mom.
I don't take time often enough to tell her that I love and appreciate her.
So of course I had to make her a card and I thought carefully about what I wanted it to say.
To begin, I pulled out this fabulous piece of My Mind's Eye paper from the "Miss Caroline" collection - one of my all-time favorite paper lines.
I also pulled some older MME paper from their Stella and Rose collection.
I'll be honest, it kind of hurt me to cut into this for a card, because it's the super thick MME paper that they didn't have the last couple go arounds.
It's my favorite paper texture EVAH! But I'll carefully preserve the scraps. :)
So here are the delightful starting papers....
I pulled the top sheet out because I love the colors and that gray section with the flowers seemed very lady-like to me.
Perfect for Mother's Day!
I made the card base out of a gray cardstock and used the yellow piece to back the front.
I used the blue die cut paper to cut my title out on my Cameo. The font is Dancing Script. A new fave.
Put it all together and bada, boom, bada, bing.....we have a card:
I mounted the gray section on a piece of cardstock to give it weight and then popped it up.
I also made the little banner that says "i love you" by adhering two pieces together the same size.
I really like my cards to have a lot of weight. It gives them an expensive feel.
For the inside, I used another strip from the top paper and mounted some more yellow inside:
Awww! I am SO SWEET!!!! :)
I'll write Happy Mother's Day in with my handwriting - maybe the lines will help me write neatly and I'll have my little girlie write something too. You know Moms love anything handwritten.
You did know that - right?
So have you made your Mother's Day card yet?? Get on it girl!
