While my own mother passed away more than 20 years ago, I do have some important women in my life that I like to acknowledge on Mother's Day. Three of those women are my elderly aunts who are dear people and who have collectively given birth to 18 children!! And I have even more first cousins than that. We were a BIG family.
Even my own immediate family was super-sized - we were a family of eight (six kids, all born within nine years).
Anyway, here are a couple of the Mother's Day cards I have made:
Once again my sister let me play with one of her dies - a Spellbinders Die D-Lites flower die.
Isn't it great? So easy to cut out and layer up. I did ink the ends of the petals a bit, to add a little dimension and help them look more life-like.
I added a black gem flourish above and below the flower and used some Liquid Pearls to create the flower center.
On the inside of my card, I added another gem flourish and the same small punched heart that was on the fishtail banner on the card front.
Once again I added some Liquid Pearls to the flower center. This time, though, before it dried, I sprinkled on some black glitter. It's sparkly and pretty IRL.
On the inside of this card, I simply added a matted strip of the DSP across the top. Do you think I should add a portion of that leafy flourish, too?
I've got a couple more Mother's Day cards to share with you, but I'll put those in another post
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
