Today, on the Bella Blvd blog, we are sharing Mother's Day cards. I pitched in with two cards of my own, and for once, I have cards made and ready to go, days ahead of time!
When I sat down to create my cards, I had some colors in mind that I wanted to work with. And right away, I turned to the Tail Waggers & Cat Naps collection. Yes, I pulled out a pets collection to make my Mother's Day cards. I love the brown woodgrain paper, and used that as the base of my card. And the circles paper is another favorite. It has random colored hearts in some of the circles.
It also has paw prints in some of the circles. Which I figured I should cover up, right ;) So I took a regular old hole punch, and punched out some of the heart circles from a leftover piece of the circle paper. I used mini pop dots to adhere them directly over the paw print circles. It gave the card some added dimension at the same time.
I used some of the same patterned papers for my second card, but added in a bit more pink this time. I used a cloud border punch from Fiskars on a few of my patterned paper strips, and layered them along the bottom of the card.
In these photos, the flag appears to be a shade of blue that doesn't really match the aqua patterned paper. Interesting. I'm positive that it matched in person. LOL. I liked the idea of mixing the flag, the chipboard letters, and the mini alpha stickers, to create my card sentiment.
