Mothers Day 2

This is the card I made for my mom. Again, the designer paper was my inspiration. I have fallen in love with this paper pack. The only bad thing about that pack is that there are only 36 pages and so I can see me going through the whole pack very quickly. LOL Yep, I'll definitely be ordering more. My mom is a very special lady and I'm very thankful to have her in my life. I just wished we lived closer because I don't get to see her near as much as I wish I did. I live in Florida and my mom lives in West Virginia. So we are seperated by a lot of miles, but I know without a doubt that she's always there when I need her. She's the greatest Momma in the whole world.

So now to tell you how I put the card together,
 what products I used and where you can purchase them too.
This is an A2 size card with Very Vanilla from Stampin Up as my card base.
Then I cut the designer paper at .25 inch shorter and it's from Custom Crops called Imaginesce Garden Party.
I used the Cricut Cartridge Twinkly Toes for the scalloped oval. All the pieces were cut at 3 inches and the
1st layer is Baja Breeze from Stampin Up
2nd layer is Very Vanilla from Stampin Up
3rd layer is Bazzill Pineapple from Joann's
The word "Mom" is cut from the Cricut Cartridge Cursive at 1.5 inches and welded together on my gypsy.
I put faux stitching around the oval with my Stampin Up white gel pen.
Then I finished the card off with a little swarovski crystal bling, that I got from ebay. They are 2 mm crystals that were given as a free gift. I never would have thought to order any that small. I have since fallen in love with them and think in some cases the smaller the better. They were so tiny that I was able to put them in the center of tiny little flowers. I think they really added the one missing element to this project. I have found these crystals on ebay and have purchased them from 2 different sellers. After comparing them I will be doing my future purchases from "Tami's Place". She can be found on ebay. Her crystals just seemed to sparkle more than the other ones and isn't that the whole point of using those kinds of crystals. Getting the most bling for you buck. So if any of you are interested in purchasing swarovski crystals for your projects, check her out.
Thanks for visiting and happy crafting!


  1. Beautiful card and your mom is going to love it. I love that lacy scalloped oval. I tend to forget what's on some of my cartridges so I'm glad you used that cut and reminded me of it. I'm going to go cut a couple right now to have on hand. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Paper Cutz.

  2. What a beautiful card. Love the laced oval. Love the paper colors and can see why it will be gone soon. Have a wonderful and very memorable Mothers day. TFS!!!
