Happy Mother's Day Cards

Wanna see the card I made for Mom & Grandma for Mother's Day?

I had received this printed acetate DP in the Stampin' Flybabies Spring 2009 Craft Kit. One sheet...I wanted to get my "money's worth" out of it! I love it. But I was still trying to come up with ideas on how to use it. Unique ways that pack some punch. I decided to run it through the Big Shot with the Butterfly Bigz Die! Oh WOW! I love these butterflies! I mounted these on the side.

Diane will be please to know I've just about used up all my buttons. She'll probably be more pleased when I use them ALL up. Just a few left. The bottom panel was created from paper scraps mounted on a scalloped piece of PTI White. The butterflies and buttons are attached with glue dots. The glue dot does NOT show under the acetate!

Here's my inspiration for this card: me sale-a-bration card from maryloves2stamp's gallery on SCS.

Later on, I'll show you the matching gift box and some of the unique cards inside.

Paper: Barely Banana, Making Memories Flower Patch, PTI White
Accessories: Making Memories Flower Patch Buttons, Barely Banana ribbon match, sticky strip, glue dots, SU! Scallop Border Punch, Big Shot, Bigz Butterfly Die


  1. Very nice! Of course I just love the butterflies!!

  2. Love those butterflies and your layout.

  3. Looking again, the buttons and ribbon and that panel all work so well together with those butterflies to make GREAT cards.
