So just before the actual day, I thought I’d post the last cards I made this year.
I managed to come across the new With Love From Me to You range and loved the Mother’s Day related items and picked up the cute stamp set. Finally, some great Mother’s Day stamps! So now I finally had the stamps I’d been looking for [what seemed like] ages for I set about making some simple, pretty cards.
First Edition Blank Canvas was once again my papers of choice. I picked out a nice flowery paper as my background with two more plain complementary papers to go with it. I then cut a scalloped circle and rectangle out of them, along with a cream circle to stamp on. I added some crochet ribbon to make it a little less plain, added some similarly coloured flowers and then completed the card with a stamp inside (from the same set):
I then decided to do another one with a bit more colour to it.In all honesty, I think there could have been a better way to arrange the panels on this card, but I do still like it. I really like these cards and it’s a template I’ll probably use again. I’m beginning to really enjoy using those paper flowers, so expect to see more of them!
What do you think?
