Mother's Day is around the corner...

...which is why I'm still making Mother's Day cards.

Here are a couple more I'll share with you today.

This card looks so delicate and pretty IRL. The pink band and the butterfly (MS punch) are both vellum. I heat embossed the sentiment and added a pearl to my butterfly.

My flower is an unbranded die with a pearl cluster added to its center. I bought a slew of these pearl clusters at least three years ago, thinking I'd use them often. They're pretty, but they add a significant "bump" to my card which requires extra postage, so I don't use them as often as I thought I would!

On the inside of my card I printed a sentiment with my computer and added a couple of tiny butterflies (Fiskars punch). The two butterfly punches that I used on this card get LOTS of use.

Here's another card using bold-colored cardstock that has some gold foil polka dots as a background for its floral pattern. It really is pretty.

I used a Spellbinder's fancy oval die for my sentiment and added a flower sticker from my stash that matched some of the flowers on the cardstock.

The fancy corner die-cuts were made with a Cheery Lynn die. I haven't used my corner dies in a long time, so I thought it was time to put them back to work.

To dress up my computer-generated sentiment on the inside, I fussy-cut one of the flowers on the cardstock and adhered it to a corner.

Since today is my oldest sister's birthday, I want to say,

Happy Birthday, Pat!

You can see the card I made for her here.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

I love both of your cards, Cheryl! I know what you mean about the "bump." I don't use many pearls for just that reason.

Both are lovely. The intricate die cuts make a card so pretty. I have a bunch of pearls too. I was using them a lot until a friend showed me how much the envelope was damaged from mailing. It is not very convenient to go to the post office to get hand stamped.

Beautiful! I especially love your fab flower die - bet you're doing a roaring trade with these mothers day cards in your store!

Love the floral floral die and you are right about the embellishment in the center of the flower - always wonder if it made it without getting torn up.
