Hello everyone, happy Saturday! Today I am sharing the Mother's Day card that I sent to my mom. As I mentioned yesterday, this was a busy week but I HAD to find tine to create cards for my mom and Doug's mom.
While browsing the Silhouette image store I found this fun layered flower cut and thought it would be fabulous on a card. There are four layers to the flowers and you can add a contrasting center if you prefer. I chose to add dark pink brads to hold my layer together and to serve as the flower centers. I fluffed the layers of the flowers up a bit to add texture to the flowers.
I used scissors and paper scraps to hand-cut my flower stems. I used the same green embossed cardstock and created the double-layered punched border at the bottom of the card - front and back of the same cardstock.
I used the same border punch on the pink rectangle on the inside the card that I used on the front border and corner caps. The stamps are the same two from my generic stash that I used on Doug's mom's card yesterday. I did, however, reverse the placements.
I know this card is very simple in design, but I did not want to overwhelm the flowers. To me the flowers were the perfect focal points.
Thanks for stopping by today. I want to wish all of my readers who are mothers a very Happy Mother's Day!! I will share photos of our mother's day celebration one day next week.
