Happy Mother's Day

I finally got in my craft room to create again. Here are three Mother's Day cards I made. They are all pretty similar. The first one is for my mom, second is for my grandma, and the third is for my great aunt. This is the first card for the year for them. : (

My mom sent me the Cricut Giant Flowers cartridge and I used it for her card. Because they are intended to be large, they are a little harder to work with when made for a smaller canvas such as a card. I will be trying more and of course will be making them smaller like this one is. The center of the flower was cut a little larger just so I could get the cut edge wrapped around. It was way too small to work with before when cut the same size. This is a cartridge that if you do not use the real dial size, it will make the layers and items proportional and will make your flower layers different sizes. I hope mom likes it and that she enjoys seeing me use my Cricut. The colors make me happy and scream my name. I think the cards with the yellow in the background stand out better. I sewed the blocks with the sewing machine. I printed the sentiment from the computer since I do not have any Mother's Day word stamps. I added the bling after to jazz the cards up a little more.

Supplies: SU mellon mambo, SU daffodil, The Paper Studio, DCWV, MME, Recollections. Cricut, Giant Flowers cartridge, Prima bling, Silk flowers, flower punch, Ribbon, Brads, Font.


  1. Love love love these colors! Jealous of the stitching, too. You know how much I love stitches and yet I don't even know how to use my sewing machine. lol Need your help with that one of these days!

    I think I like the orange on the last card the best but I do agree the colors pop best on the yellow base. Very well done!
