Mother’s Day

Apparently, I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been busy and haven’t had much time to make cards, but I did make 4 Mother’s Day cards, so figured I’d share them. Nope, not for a challenge, though I did use the first one in a fold challenge on WeCraftCards.

Mother In Law

Took a class a couple of weeks ago on making flowers. This was the 2nd card I made with this type of flower. Had fun with this, though the class wasn’t great. Granted, I had had my second vaccine shot the day before and was feeling pretty horrible during the class, so that may have something to do with my attitude.

Grandmother

This one I made for my grandmother and was according to one of the class card directions. I like the way this one turned out, though my MILs is more fun.

Mom

This is the one I made for my mom. The whole card was based around the paper I found that I wanted to use for the flowers. Unfortunately, the paper was Yupo paper which was incredibly difficult to shape, especially as I didn’t have the special tool the teacher said we needed for sweat peas. Oh well, a lot of work, but I like it. Probably wouldn’t have kept trying to shape the Yupo paper, had I not already done the rest of the card.

Abbie

This last one was made for my niece, who is pregnant. This one I used pieces from a paper and pieces set. Added a couple of fun butterfly stickers to it, too. It does continue a bit inside. I’m not fond of step cards, as there is very little room to write, so I did the back “step” as a card base and glued it to the step card. It opens up to a full inside, with room to decorate a bit and write.

Granted, I did not do envelopes for any of these cards. The flower cards are hand deliver, or make a box and pay a ton to mail. So, Mother’s Day, where all will be hand delivered.

Thanks for spending some of your valuable time with me! Have a wonderful Mother’s Day, whether you are a mother, or a “child”.

Mothers Day 2013

Just wanted to share 3 Mothers Day cards with you.

4-29-13 MD Flowering Tree

5-5-13 MD Monochromatic

5-5-13 MD Tea

I won’t tell you which one goes to who as one of the wonderful women might see, but there is one for my mother, my grandmother and my mother-in-law.  The purple one has tissue paper on the square, which was interesting to work with.  The teal/turquoise one is monochromatic (MFP Speedy TV Simple Salutations Challenge), though it does have touches of white and green on the flowery paper piece and you can see a bit of the white base card around the edges.  The first is more of a scene card as I used several stamps out of one set to do it.  Love that stamp set, called The Giving Tree (Gina K.).  The flowers on the other two cards are from different flowered stamp sets by Gina K. and the teapot and cup die and stamps are from (MFT).

Thanks for spending some time with me today!
