Mother's Day with Lori

I created an 8" x 3.5" Mother's Day card with some of my favorite products in the store. First, I used Make The Cut and a free font called Miss Scarlet with my Cricut to create my MOM cut and a shadow layer. I cut the mom layer from pink cardstock, and the shadow layer from American Crafts glitter cardstock in Leaf. I layered my patterned paper and a punched border strip on a dark purple card base, and adhered it all with Tombow mono-adhesive. I then adhered the MOM layers on top, also using Tombow.

Next, I chose three sizes of Petaloo Color Me Crazy flowers in the same style. I sponged them with stamping ink in bright pink and dark purple. (These flowers take ink beautifully!) I used a pink pearl brad from American Crafts (Brights package) as my flower center, and attached it to the front of my card with a glue dot.

Items available at Cutters Creek:

Make The Cut software
Green At Heart collection, Basic Grey
Glitter Paper, American Crafts
Color Me Crazy paper flowers, Petaloo
Pearl Brads, American Crafts
