I can now show you the cards I made for Mother's Day. They are very feminine and I love how they turned out. They were relatively quick to make and our Mums loved them.
On both of the cards I used twisted paper flowers which I made on my daisy wheel. A daisy wheel is a small knitting loom use for making wool flowers. They only take a couple of minutes each to make. I have been making a stash of them in different colours whilst watching TV. I combined the twisted paper flowers with vellum flowers and glittered silk flowers as well as a button from my huge button collection that you may remember from my previous post! Two down and many many more to go! LOL
The Mother's Day sentiment I wrote in gel pen on a scalloped tag I cut using the Storybook cartridge and my Cricut Expression. The swirls looked too much on the blue card so I removed them and used them as part of the flower.
I also made a very tiny dent in my ribbon and lace collection too using some on the cards. The longest piece was only 16cm(6 & 1/2") long. Oh well I guess every little bit helps!
I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day including those of you with furkids!
