More Mother's Day cards.

This first card uses the same Caardvarks sketch from THIS post. I used my Curved Rectangles Nestabilities to cut the shapes from the green gingham Christina Re paper and the brown Bazzil cardstock. The green crinkled paper is what I saved from my birthday bunch of flowers.........it was too pretty to throw out, and I'm doing my bit for the environment! I sewed this to the brown Bazzil card.

The greeting stamp is from a Stampin' Up Saleabration set. I added some thin green satin ribbon, paper flower and a Paper String Daisy by Sandie. My friend Sandie makes these so go check them out! Added a button and green embroidery thread to the flower centre.


This second card also features one of Sandie's Paper String Daisies . The pink flower underneath it is a foam flower, which I sprayed with Tattered Angels Pink Vintage Glimmer Mist, there's a brown paper flower under it and I added a blue heart brad to the flower centre. The design paper is by Cloud Nine, I used a Cuttlebug border embossing folder with a button design, the greeting is again made with my JustRite stamper. I cut out the circle and scalloped circle with Nestabilities dies, also used Fiskars Water Threading punch along the bottom edge of the design paper.


Thanks again for dropping by my blog, have a great day!

I love them both, Lyn. The first one is just so soft and warm. The second is so feminine and love the punched edge too! Thanks for commenting on the I/O blog.
