Mother's Day Cards and Elzybells Challenge 16

Sunday, 22 March 2009
I know, shock horror, 2 posts in one day!! As it is Mother's Day, it is only right that I show the cards I have made for my mum and mother-in-law. I decided against making identical cards this year. Thought it would be best if I challenged myself a bit.

This card is for my mum. I have used the gorgeous Elzybells Love You Teds for this card. One of the DT members, Maria Adams gave me the idea after using if for a Mother's Day card during the sneak peeks. It has been coloured in with copics before being mounted onto some pink Core'dinations CS. I'm loving this CS at the moment, it is just as good as Bazzill. The base is using the same CS with a white layer that has been embossed using good ole swiss dots! I have added some pink satin ribbon across the centre. The swirls are coordinating with the same CS. They are cut out using the Sizzix Scribbles Swirls die. "Mum" has been cut using the Girls Are Weird alphabet and the card has been finished off with the usual 3 gemstones.

I'm also hoping that this will qualify for the Elzybells Challenge this fortnight, which is Polka Dots. I know some of the DT have used the swiss dots embossing folder, so I've got my fingers crossed that I can too!!

For Jon's mum's card, I used the cute Forever Friends Family Relations decoupage pack and have mounted the image using 3d foad pads before adhering to a scalloped square nestabilty and adding some Papermania Adhesive Shimmer Dots to the 3 remaining corners. The base is made up of a piece of Papermania Ametheyst Infusion DP whilst the other half of the card has been embossed using the D'vine Swirls folder. I have added 3 more shimmer dots to the top corner.

I hope the photo's look okay. It was difficult to see how they looked when editing them as I had the sun streaming through the window and causing glare on my screen. Apologies if they're not that great.

I hope all you mum's out there are getting well and truly spoilt today! I'm off to see mine shortly with a BIG bunch of flowers and a Mother's Day Pooh Bear!!!
