Another card...

There have been a few requests for some Mother's Day card ideas. I looked through my stash and could not find one single stamp that said Happy Mother's Day on it. And since hubby and I already sent off our cards to our Mothers, I decided to do something a bit different.

I have a very dear friend who is serving overseas right now in the Air Force. So, I decided to make this a Miss You card instead for her. But, I think the overall design would work perfectly as a Mother's Day card as well. Just change the sentiment and voila! :o)

Hope this provides you with a little inspiration! Until next time...

Recipe:
Vase: Walk in My Garden Cartridge (page 102) ~ 2 1/2"
Flowers: Sweet Treats Cartridge (page 49 & 50) ~ 2 of each flower ~ 1 1/4"
Burgundy cardstock ~ 4 x 5 1/4
White ~ 3 3/4 x 5
Burgundy Strip ~ (punch design first, then measure) ~ 1 x 3 3/4"
Green Strip ~ 1/2 x 3 3/4
EK Success Slim Border Punch "Open Scallop"
EK Success Paper Shaper Heart Punch
2 green rhinestones
White pen for detailing on flowers
Tim Holtz Distress Ink ~ Frayed Burlap (for shading around vase)
