Now don't go assuming I'm skipping Easter because I am posting Mother's Day cards. I am most certainly not. But I do know how overwhelmed I felt with Valentine's Day orders so I wanted a head start. :)
Here are the two designs I've come up with:
The first one is a simple card to make. I used framelits to cut out the MOM and stamped the front and inside with the Painted Petals stamp set. Simple enough!
I just love these flowers! I hope this is a carryover set!
The second card I made features the flowers from the Indescribable Gift stamp set. I believe there cherry blossoms. To get the colored effect, I stamped the two splatter stamps from Gorgeous Grunge over the petals.
I then took my aqua painter and added soft suede ink. I just flicked the tip of it to add the messy look to the front. I hadn't tried this trick yet and was quite pleased. I can't take credit - but I'm not sure either where I read this tip.
I added ribbon and a button to the front and stamped the inside of the card too.
These cards were a lot of fun to make. I hope that they bring a smile to whatever mom or "friend" may receive them.
To all my friends who have lost their moms, I love you. Keep smiling :)
And to my BFF waiting for an adoption, I pray this is your last Mother's Day alone! <3
