Victoria from PAPER SQUIRREL created this sunny card using the MOM FLOWERS file. She says: "That special day to say “thank you” to mom for everything she’s done for us is not too far away, so get out those electronic cutters and join the "Mother's Day Cards" challenge! For my own mom, I wanted a bright and cheerful card…with flowers…my mom LOVES flowers! The basic layout is very simple, with the star being the potted posy cut from My Mind’s Eye patterned papers using The Creative Pointe’s “MOM Flowers SVG."
Carolyn from GRANNY MA's CREATIVE BLOG created the lovely card above as well as the two beauties below using the brand new MOM CARD & CHARMS set. She says: "I first cut out the card base from a svg file from The Creative Pointe with "Mom" cut out in approximately the center. Than using Versamark and a Stampin! Up stamp, Fifth Avenue Floral (believe it's retired stamp set) I placed the watermark image right below Mom and embossed with white embossing powder. Use a ribbon and two flowers for embellishing the card. For backing of the "Mom" cut out, I placed an off-white piece of cardstock behind the opening. The next two (2) cards used a card base from Birds Cards (Rose Edge Card) which features a stenciled edge of roses. The card can be used with the rose edge to the side or as I have done, along the bottom."
"I cut out the "Mom" charm and the back shadow and placed over a ribbon above the cutouts of the stenciled roses. I placed small flowers at each end of the charm and added punched butterflies for embellishments."
"I hand trimmed the backing for the blue card, and then for the green card, I joined the pieces to come up with a 'welded' look and cut out with my machine. And then trimmed it off at the perforated line. Easy-peasy...."
Pam from MZLAVR2's CREATIONS created this colorful card using the MOM FLOWERS file. Lots of lovely texture on this card!
