I'll be showing cards for moms who like bling, moms who like flowers and moms who like silly.

Oddly, all of my projects are cards, but this first "Bling" card has a 3D.  The flower embellishment that is the main image of the card is a removable pin.  It is adhered with dots of Green Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue that I allowed to dry on the card before attaching.  The pin peels right off the card when you want it to do so.

The MOM label will also easily peel off the flower petals because MOM probably won't want to announce it on the jacket or bag to which she clips the flower especially longer than a week after Mother's Day.  I think the glitter on the Very Vanilla under the Pink Pirouette doiley adds a bit of fun to the Beau Chateau designer series paper colorscheme.

Next, is this Floral stained glass look card. It was created by using vellum with the Designer Cuts Cards and Envelopes set from the Occasions Mini catalog. I like the idea of giving this floral heart to a woman rather than a Valentine/man since it is so frilly, so when my downline Valerie showed a similar card to me, I had to find the tutorial by Patty Bennett and CASE Brenda Crenshaw. I used lighter colors and added a really need to try this one. It is such fun!

Finally, I have a silly card to give to a mom who isn't necessarily your mom.   I may have to explain my intent?  The idea is that Mom is sprinkling happiness and making the child grow...Perfect to give to a mom on her first Mother's Day....

Pin It
