Well, Mother's Day will be here on Sunday and so these are the cards that I made for my Mum .
I haven't decided yet which of the Mum cards I will give her- it's a tough one 'cos I love 'em both! The Mum cards have had 2 centimetres cut from the right hand side of the front, covered with patterned paper, then the cut edge was trimmed with Fiskars Cloud scissors. The inside back of the card was covered in a contrasting pattern (sorry, you can't see from the photo). I cut a panel for the front & covered it with more patterned paper, trimmed it with a ribbon & flower, Laura Ashley fabric brads (in the centre of the flowers) and three brads at the bottom of the panel. I then cut out the sentiments- Mum & Happy Mother's Day,glittered them & stuck them into place. The panel is raised with foam tape ( much easier to use when fixing large panels!)
The Nan card was made with a panel of patterend paper adhered to a piece of pink card with a scalloped edge. I added a smaller strip of paptterned paper, a ribbon & flower and a scalloped frame which holds the sentiment. I rounded the top right corner of the panel,which was adhered to the card with foam tape again. I added some pricking for added emphasis. I have to apologise in advance,but you will see a lot of cards like these over the next few days!
