Happy Mother's Day!
Today I have two similar Mother's Day cards. If you are really behind, you can use one of these ideas for your Mother's Day card. Or, you can change the sentiment in the oval and use them for just about any occasion. The sentiment is from Thoughtful Banners which has 53 stamps, over 40 of which are words or phrases that can be mixed and matched to make the sentiment you want.
The fancy die cut on the front of both cards is done with the Big Shot and Detailed Floral Thinlts. These dies are available as a bundle with a coordinating stamp set through May 31. The ovals are cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
The background on the front oval and inside the card is done with a stamp from Flourishing Phrases. The sentiment is also from Flourishing Phrases. The stamps are kind of hard to see in the photo, but can easily be read in person. The top one says, "I think it more often than I say it, but I just want to make sure you know it" and underneath, "I love you."
Here's the second card. For this one, I cut the die cut at the edge of the card and as you can see in the next picture, put a a strip of Night of Navy on the inside of the card so it shows through the die cut. The Designer Series Paper (DSP) on the front panel is Floral Boutique. Sadly, it was on the retiring list and has sold out. That's why you don't want to delay getting your retiring items. You could use the Flourishing Phrases stamp from above to fill in the panel.
The inside of this card has the same sentiment as the other card, which I love for Mother's Day. Flourishing Phrases is full of great sentiments and phrases and I really like the font. Check the set out below.
See what I mean about it being a great set? It's also available with coordinating thinlits as a bundle through May 31.
