Happy Mother's Day

by Joanne James29. March 2014 23:07

I had a busy day in London yesterday so despite my best efforts to get ahead of myself I still didn't manage to blog yesterday and having had a class and put in my last Sale-A-Bration order I'm almost running out of time today, so before I do here is my intended share for yesterday, one of the Mother's Day cards I made in a couple of different colourways that I couldn't share before the day itself. Here it is in the predominantly pink colourway:

The card is similar to one I saw on Julie Kettlewell's blog here - I made a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square gatefold card and created an overlapping framed circle that I cut with my Circles Framelits and created a wreath of tiny stamped and punched flowers around the central bold 'Happy Mother's Day sentiment. I also made this card is an aqua colourway here using Coastal Cabana for the base:

The hardwood background stamp makes such a great background for the focal point and some flower stamping inside and on the envelopes along with a few rhinestones just finishes off the card perfectly.

My Mother's Day was rather unconventional and was only spent with one of my offspring, which felt slightly strange, but Rebecca and I had a great day in London (she was so excited that she got to have her picture taken in front of Big Ben!) and the bonus is we get to have another Mother's Day next Sunday altogether to make up for it!

Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

That card is so gorgeous, I could also see doing it in red and green for a Christmas wreath

Love cards Joanne and thank you for linking back to me, I really appreciate that as it's so nice to appreciate each other and it's not often done! Thank you!

Thanks for the inspiration Julie and for popping by to comment on my cards - it's not often I directly CASE the work of others, but sometimes if I see something I love I just want to recreate it - this was one of those cards! I always provide a link to the original idea or inspiration, as I believe credit should be given where due and you're right - it doesn't happen often enough! Thanks again!
