Happy Mother’s Day Mailbox Bouquet

3/13/22 Top Pick at Jan’s Digi Stamps Challenges!

Hey peeps! Does this year seem to be flying by as fast as last year?! Hard to believe it’s March 1st already! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! Our new challenge has launched over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog this morning and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #58 – Anything Goes + optional Fancy Fold! You know how I love me some fun folds so this challenge was right up my alley! And my yearly commissioned Mother’s Day card creations have begun! I think I mentioned in a previous post that we have a hardware store here in our little town that also sells lots of other kinds of housewares, and the owner commissions me every year to make Mother’s Day cards, so I try to make a nice variety. I love this one so much that it would go to my own mother if she were still here with us! ;)

I cut all the pieces from American Crafts White cardstock; CutCardStock Basis Magenta, Basis Coral, Basis Gold, Pop-Tone Bubblegum, Pop-Tone Tangy Orange, and Pop-Tone Orange Fizz; Stampin’ Up Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi cardstock; and Stampin’ Up Share What You Love Specialty DSP. That’s a lot of cardstock and patterned paper, lol! I always say the most fun is the assembly, and I had a blast putting this together and watching it come to life! I stamped a sentiment from the Trinity Stamps A Sentiment For (Almost) Everything stamp set in pink ink on a white cardstock scrap, trimmed it and adhered it to the bottom front.

Here are angled and back shots. I added a plain white panel to the back with a stamped sentiment from the Prickley Pear Stamps Christmas Holiday Gift Tags stamp set.

And one more look… the card is folded flat for mailing. I sure do love how this turned out! The array of colors is breathtaking!

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
