Mother's Day Cards

Hi!

I hope all the mothers that read my blog had a fabulous Mother's Day yesterday - I know I did!

I thought I'd share with you the cards I made for my mother and mother-in-law. I wanted to make extra special cards, so I went for a Tri-fold card for one of them. It was my first attempt at making one. I found the instructions on SplitCoast Stampers. Here is the front:



And here is the open card:



I found it a little tricky, but worth the extra effort.

For the second card I decided to go back to an old favourite: Fifth Avenue Floral. I love watercolouring that rose image! I usually colour it in pinks, but this time I thought I'd give it a go with Rich Razzleberry. I think it worked beautifully!



The Very Vanilla panel and the sentiment panel are raised on Dimensionals to add a bit of depth to the card front.

To go with each card I made up a little mini album filled with photos of my children with their Nanna/Grandma. In some of the photo slots the kids drew pictures and wrote about why they loved their Nanna/Grandma. I got this brilliant idea from the very clever and talented Ros Davidson.

Trifold Card:
Stamps: Baroque Motifs
Ink: Regal Rose
DSP/Card Stock: Love Sparkles Simply Scrappin' Kit DSP and Regal Rose Textured Card Stock, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip and Regal Rose Card Stock
Other: Stickers from Love Sparkles Simply Scrappin' Kit, Chit Chat Rub Ons (retired from Summer Mini), Flowers and Brown Brads (non SU)

Rose Card:
Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, En Francais BG
Ink: Black Stazon, Rich Razzleberry
Card Stock: Watercolour Paper, Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla
Other: Rich Razzleberry 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain ribbon, Sponge Dauber, Aqua Painter, Dimensionals, Chit Chat Rub On (retired from Summer Mini)

Catch you later,

Tina
