Mother’s Day Postage Stamp Greeting Card

By Cards

Hi all,

I’m back with an all new mother’s day card to share. For this card, I wanted to create a postage stamp as the main focal point of the card. At first I thought I wondered how I could find a postage stamp large enough to feature, then I realized how simple it could be to create one in silhouette studio.

To break things down think of the postage stamp as a rectangle and the edge is created by welding in a row of circles. I added in some various sizes of words for the sentiment and a beautiful die-cut of roses.

Here’s a closeup of those roses – look at all that sparkle!

Happy Mother’s Day Banner Greeting Card

By Cards

Hi all,

I’m back with another card for mother’s day. Again I chose to use my silhouette to create the sentiment. I had a set of these gorgeous banner die-cuts that I wanted to use at the very top of the card. I adjusted my settings accordingly in silhouette studio and created my large sentiment.

To finish the card, I used a white gel pen around the edges to create a look of faux stitching.

As you can see I am still into the corals and teals. I love how this card also incorporates some soft yellows. Also, every other banner is sparkly…did you notice? This card is just so shimmery and bright in the light. I love it!

I hope you have a lovely afternoon and thanks for stopping by!

Mother’s Day Greeting Card – Lucky Few

By Cards

Hi all,

I can’t believe how quickly the year is flying by. As a cardmaker I often try to grab a head start on the next holiday occasion and put out some cards that are appropriate each holiday. It seems like I just finished wrapping up valentine’s day and now we’re already onto mother’s day!

I wanted to concentrate on the corals and teals for this season’s cards and decided to use a common color scheme for the cards. This is one I created using silhouette studio. The sentiment was created using a couple fonts I recently purchased.

For added dimension the card background I used a small dot embossing pattern. Love the texture there! The balloon is a die-cut image that I had and I popped that up off the card using a foam adhesive.

I absolutely love the way this card turned out. I don’t know what it is about this color combo, but I am stuck on it like glue! So pretty!

What are your favorite spring colors? Comment below and let me know.

Have a great day and see you next time.
