Mother's Day Cards


Hello everyone and welcome new followers.  I have been working outside my comfort zone this week making a few Mother's Day/birthday cards.  Although I love cards with floral decoration I have always found it difficult to use grouped flowers and leaves on my cards.  Recently I bought a Sizzix large flower die and embossing folder, I bought it to make a wreath with Spring colours but also wanted to use this in my cardmaking.  


The sentiment was foiled onto a square of papermilldirect white linen card.  This was layered onto an embossed square of  papermilldirect Dark Violet plain card and then onto a white linen card blank.  The large embossed flower and leaves were positioned at the lower right hand side of the card and sequins and pearls added.


A second card was made using a tri-fold card.  An aperture was die cut from the front of the card and the flowers  flowers and leaves added, a foiled sentiment was added to the inside fold.  To add interest I embossed the inside of the card before adding a printed sentiment. 


Materials used:

I enjoyed playing with the large flowers and will be making the wreath next.  The flowers have been cut out using a wide range of colours so I have plenty of flowers for my future projects.
