Happy Mother's Day!

I want to wish all the moms out there a very Happy Mother's Day! I made a pretty card for all of you!

1. Trim Elan Metallics Candied Violet cardstock to create a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch card.

2. Using a die cut template, cut the dotted "overlay" from Petallics Ice cardstock. Trim to fit card front. Attach the dotted overlay with foam tape for extra dimension.

3. Using a selection of die cut templates, cut flower and leaf shapes from Twist cardstock. The sample uses Twist Lime, Lilac, and Yellow.

4. Ink the shapes as desired and form into a flower cluster. The Twist cardstock is smooth on one side and mulberry paper on the other. You are able to create amazing paper flowers! 

5. Use Natural Smooth cardstock to trim out a small tag. Stamp the sentiment with gray ink. Attach the mini tag to the right side of the flower cluster with foam tape.

6. Trim Natural Smooth cardstock to fit the inside of the card. Stamp the sentiment with gray ink. Attach the panel to the inside of the card.

Thanks for looking!
