A little Mother's Day Card mass production going on...












I finally finished making my Mother's Day cards for our mother's and my grandmothers. I need to work on teacher appreciation gifts too...I wish I did not require sleep :)
The cs I used is all from ACMoore (white, black, tropical green) except the Stampin' Up! (SU) Old Olive cs. Also from SU: dimensionals, white gel pen, top note die, designer series paper (dsp), and stamp. The ribbons are from Mike's. I used the SU top note die on the dsp, and the smallest oval is the stamped image. I used the gel pen on the flower centers of the stamped image. I used my Cuttlebug embossing folder Swiss Dots on the Old olive cardstock and the black oval. I also used the Martha Stewart Doily border punch.
The challenge this week (#29) at Cuttlebug Challenges is to make a coordinating envelope for your Mother's Day card. I used the scrap dsp for the envelope flap, and stamped the image on the front of the envelope (in Old Olive ink). I used my white gel pen to draw in flower centers.
