Well, the calendar says Mother's Day is this Sunday - boy did that sneak up on me!! So I set out to make a few simple cards - quickly, so I could get them in the mail in time!! I decided to use the Butterfly Thinlet stamp set again but used the smaller butterfly this time.
I had a different design in mind when I set out, but this is what I ended up with. I was going to do some embossing and put the butterflies on one side, but I wanted my greeting on the front. So, I decided to put some ribbon down one side and scatter my butterflies like they were flying around the greeting.
I was happy how they turned out. I used Very Vanilla for my base card as well as for my layer. The butterflies are stamped in Old Olive, Pretty and Pink and Wisteria Wonder and then die cut. I used a Mother's Day greeting on the inside that I found years ago in the $ bin at Michael's. The ribbon is half white and pink satin and I placed a few rhinestones on the butterflies to dress them up for the occasion!
It looks like we're going to have a beautiful weekend! Everyone in the Pansy Patch would like to wish all the Mom's out there a very Happy Mother's Day!!
Thanks for stopping by,
