It's time to start sending out those beloved cards for Mother's Day. I'm actually created a few extras this year for a donation at my church. Every year I wonder if it would be a good idea to have a few dozen made up and sitting at the greeter's desk on Mother's Day morning. You know, just for those sons and daughters that might have forgotten? :)
This little lovely uses the frame from Verve Stamps, Love Story back dropped by die-cut and embossed vellum.
I used the flowers from Joyful Blooms and embossed them with Stampendous Detail White embossing powder (boy that stuff is shiny!) I added some adhesive backed pearls and some of Verve's luscious Seam Binding ribbon from Spring Fling Collection and added some stitches. Oh, see I even added an embossed doily in the background (see the next card for details).
Are you ready for Mother's Day?
