Happy mother’s day

3/7/21 Rising Star at A Place To Start!

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a great weekend! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! It’s time for a new challenge over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #56 – March Anything Goes! I probably hold the record for the most Mother’s Day cards showcased on a blog, lol! I’ve been commissioned to make quite a few, so I figure why not share them?!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock cardstock. I printed the gorgeous Botanical Orchids pre-colored digital image from Jan’s Digi Stamps on linen cardstock and cut it with a stitched circle die. I picked out some pretty cardstock with coordinating patterned paper to create the background panel and cut it with stitched rectangle die.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of the patterned paper used on the front and cut it with a rectangle die. I stamped the sentiment in black ink and then layered the panel on a stitched rectangle die cut.

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! See what I mean… I have to share these, lol!

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
