Mother's Day

Mother's Day is a great day to celebrate those special women in our lives who have provided love and support. So what better way to tell them you care by making them a little something special to go along with their tokens of love.

Here are three that I made this year. Each was created to match the personalities of the people who are going to be receiving them. I try to make them each a little different and special in their own way.

The first used a scroll background using my SCAL software and my Cricut. I chose to keep it simple with design but I still wanted to make them elegant. I loved the mint and pink coloring. I chalked the lettering because originally it was the same pink as the base card and I really wanted it to pop.

The second card was using Sentimentals cartridge. I embossed the teacups using my Sizzix texture boutique. I was in a color splash mood and decided to use a bold background for my tea set. I think the emnossing really enhances each piece without going over the top. I was tempted to color it more, but decided that the clean and simple look worked best.

The third card was made with the SCAL and I embellished it with the ribbon and flowers.I created the textured background using my Sizzix Texture Boutique. I am really loving the multiple uses of this! I was trying to appeal more to the recipient with this card. She enjoys the earthy colors and I wanted to give her something that would reflect that.

I hope you enjoyed the cards! Happy Mother's Day to all the women who have one of the toughest jobs out there!
