A Sweet Card for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is just around the corner! I won’t be able to see Mom on Mother’s Day, but I was able to send her gift and a sweet card I made for her (I hung out on the phone with her while she opened her gifts – such fun). I used some new products (and some unexpected color combinations to make this card I sent to her for her special day:

Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper, Stampin Up!, Brian King, Mothers Day cardI wasn’t expecting to use these colors on this card (that’s Cajun Craze!), but I have to admit I like them very much! I had pulled Berry Burst to accent my Bubble Bath pieces (it looks like Berry Burst in the center of the little flowers in these papers until you look closer). The floral pattern and the striped panel behind it come from the same page of the Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in this double-pack of 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper:

Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper, Stampin Up!, 161640How fun are these pages?! So many to love! The $30 pack of papers includes 48 12″ x 12″ pages – so many of the patterns work with stamp sets and bundles throughout the catalog. I love that! The sentiment on my card is mounted on two layers of the Nested Essentials Dies. I LOOOVE the four labels at the top of the picture below, but the rounded rectangles worked perfectly for my “MOM”. Here’s a look at the Nested Essentials Dies:

I added Adhesive Sheets behind the cardstock, cut the letter and then added them to the card. So easy! Here’s a look at the Alphabet a la Mode Dies:

In the end, though, I was really happy with the addition of Cajun Craze into this project. Such fun! If you like this unexpected mix of Bubble Bath, Old Olive and Cajun Craze as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference:
