CCJC9 – Mother’s Day Cards

Wow…I can't believe our Occasions Edition of Create with Connie and Julie is over!  This is our last challenge and then we'll announce the winners on Friday.  This week's theme was Mother's Day cards.  


My card is a tri-fold card from Rose Red cardstock and it was hard to get a good photo of it closed!  I took my colors from the Sweet Pea Designer Paper.  I knew I wanted to use the small floral designer paper in that package…then ended up almost covering the flowers up!  Oh well! 


I stamped MOM from Stampin' Up!'s Messages for Mom stamp set in Taken with Teal on Whisper White cardstock, then layered it on Taken with Teal cardstock.  Only the left side of it is secured to the front panel of the tri-fold card.  I wrapped some Rose Red 1/4 Grosgrain Ribbon and tied a small bow.  I added some Beautiful Wings Embosslit butterflies and the clear rhinestone stickers from the Eggcellent Egg Kit!


Opened up, you can see the inside greeting stamped in Taken with Teal on Whisper White and again matted on Taken with Teal cardstock.  I added a Sweet Pea Stitched Felt Flower and leaves to the bottom right corner.

Inks:  Taken with Teal

Cardstock:  Rose Red, Taken with Teal, Whisper White
