Mother's Day Cards

Maybe it is because I am a mother or because I have a great mother but I love mother's day! Between my husband and I we are lucky enough to have 2 moms, a stepmom and 2 grandmothers...that is pretty awesome! So this past week I have been pretty busy card making, my dads birthday is this week also(post on his card to come)!

This first card is for my mom. I chose purple because that is what I see when I think of my mom and I loved the elegance of this argyle.
I used some stickers I found in my collection to spell out mom
and these cute little flowers selaed the deal..hehe
Stickers: Francis Meyer
Everything is cut at 4.5"
all paper is from my "stash"

This card I did for both my grandmother and Jason' might be one of my favorites!
I loved this patterned paper (The Paper Studio) and have been looking for a reason to use it
This card is trifold of sorts but with that flower as a fold it is less than tranditional
I found 2 of these sentiments in a "Quote Stack" by DCWV

This envelope is so cute and using the liner to accent that cute branch is the perfect peek when the recipient gets this card

This sticker I found is makes a great address label
Everything is cut at 6"
Patterned Paper: The Paper Studio
Sentiment: DCWV "Quote Stack" vellum
Adress label and solid paper is from "my stash"


These 2 very similar cards were made for my m-i-l and my stepmom.
I wish I had made the grass green but without making the envelope in green also and then cutting the grass off and gluing it to this one I had no idea what to do :(
Everything is cut at 4.5"
solid paper: "my stash"
Patterned paper: Bo Bunny Press
Brads used as flower centers:Oriental Trading

This card I made for Ms. Bettey she is Jason's step grandmother but we love and cherish her as if she were blood. This was one of those cards that the pieces just fell together beautifully and is so simple yet I love it!

Card is hand folded: cut at 8x 3.75
ribbon: American Crafts
Plaid paper is Bo Bunny Press
Sticker is from my stash

I hope all the mothers out there had a great Mother's Day and that my mothers/grandmothers enjoyed their cards!!


  1. Great cards. I'm sure they all loved them.


  2. Nicely done! Love the Wild Card cartridge!
