To Mom


This doesn't happen very often, but I made a card without any stamps! I used stickers from Stampendous to make this Mother's Day card. First I placed the vase of flowers sticker onto white card stock and colored it with watercolor pencils, cut it out and glued it onto torn blue paper. It was then glued to a card and holes were punched along the spine and eyelet stickers (these are so much easier to use than eyelets!) were place over the holes then tied with gold cord. I then put a butterfly sticker on white card stock, colored with watercolor pencils, cut out and popped up on the card. A butterfly chain was placed at the edge of the card and a blue panel was glued to the inside of the card for a border. Letter stickers were placed on a vellum tag and tied to the card.
I am now off to take my Mom to lunch for her 75th birthday. The family took her out Sunday night for a nice dinner, so this will just be me and Mom since my daughter is on Spring break, but she is at the mall with friends and my son is in school (it's year round). Hope all of you have a great day!
