Hi Everyone! Cindy and I have some Mother's Day card inspiration for you today.
Cindy created this stunning and striking card. She was drawn to a sentiment she found on a card at the local Hallmark store. Printed it on the card and created her simple design around it. She used the white background as her canvas so the small colorful details would pop, and for a little added texture, she embossed the small hearts layered with the large red hearts. I love look of the two contrasting patterns.
I decided to make two cards, one that is cute and one that is more traditional. The first one uses these adorable elephants I cut with my Silhouette. I love how the pattern papers from the 6x6 tiny tablets are smaller. They added so much texture to the elephants. I kept the design simple, so I stamped a repeating phrase on the background for the sentiment (I <3 U Mom) in a light color. I think this would be a cute card for a new Mom or for a child to give.

For this card, I cut out a shaped card and layered another piece of pattern paper a little smaller on top. Stitched around the base of the card. Using my Silhouette again, I cut a doily and leaves to place under the chipboard flower. Added a border punch from the Destination collection to bring the eye to the Sentiment. And added a label, chipboard button and twine to finish it off.
