Mothers Day card #1








This week was mother's day card week. I had to make a card for my mom and my mother-in-law. So I turned to some online inspiration and found these two sketches to help me get started.



I decided to make them into easel cards so that my moms could display them. I also had found this great designer paper about 6 months ago that had Mom written all over it which I thought would be perfect! I also used some designer paper I had bought back in November that was white pearly paper with swirls and thought it would go well! I made handmade flowers using Accent Essential Cricut Cart to make the layers, added a little bling and a butterfly button, and voila- 2 different mother's day cards!
