Mother’s Day Watering Can Bouquets

5/1/20 Top 3 at Cut It Up!

Hi, friends! Happy Sunday – I hope you’re having a beautiful weekend and staying safe doing the ‘social distancing’ thing! I’ve popped in this morning with a couple Mother’s Day box cards I created with my Scan N Cut paired with the awesome Defined stamp set from The Project Bin. These turned out so pretty and could be used for just about any occasion calling for a bouquet of colorful flowers!


I cut the watering cans from heavy kraft cardstock, and used one of my favorite 12×12 paper pads to cut the panels, one in blue and one in purple. I cut the flowers the same except for the coordinating cluster of posies at the top to match the panels. I stamped the front sentiment in matching ink and the ‘mom’ sentiment on the back panel in black ink. I used matching Dot Sparklers for a little bling. Here’s the blue one:

And here’s the purple one:

And here are both box cards folded flat, ready to be mailed in their matching envelopes:

Love, love, love! I’m just tickled with how these turned out and I know the girls are going to love them! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. I’ve been trying to figure out the fold. is this a 5 x 7 envelope? These are so cute and love the purple one in particular. We are partnering with ArtsyStamper this week and would love you to join us at Double Trouble as you have already met our requirement “Spring Things” and the optional twists. Hope to see you there, our link is on the ArtsyStamper challenge blog.
