MOTHERS DAY CARDS


These are 2 cards my friend asked me to make her. one for her mother, and one for her mother-in-law. i used the Joanna Sheene sillhouette CD to create my images which i then Decoupaged and added some flower soft to the little baskets at the corners. and to the little flowers in the girls basket and around her.i used another Joanna Sheene CD to create a picture frame which i thencut out and applied to the scene with 3D foam strips. i then made little butterflies on the computer and printed them to vellum which i cut out and decoupaged and attached to the front of the card. I applied some rennie mackintosh peel offs to the top/bottom edges and corners of the bottom card. On the top card i used hand made paper which was a duck egg blue with silver metalic swirls. I matted, layered / enameled the little mothers day poems and attached them across the bottom of the decoupaged images, and applied little butterflies to the corners of the poems.
