Embossed Love


I started to work on some Mother's Day cards this week in order to get ahead and then I had some requests so once I got started I could not stop. I am loving this color combination and of course, how could I not love the simplicity of these cards using the CB folders? These are just a must and I am thrilled to be using them so much!

The first two cards showcase Garden whimsy from SU with Pink Piroquette and Baha Breeze. Very simple cards, I added a little bit of stickles to the wings of the butterfly to make it shimmer which you can not tell but it is so pretty!

The fore card is made with Pink Piroquette from SU and white cardstock which is embossed with my CB folder. I added a little pink and white polka dot ribbon and sentiment and done. The Upsy Daisy is from SU as well as the oval circle punch. I love this card b/c I love the set and it is clean and crisp. The card to the right is made very similar to the first and even a bit more simple in that I just mounted it to white cardstock added a strip of ribbon and wha la! What I did with the flowers is I stamped in PP and then in craft white just set off a little bit. I love the look. The card to the left is made with the one of the SU hostess sets and I colored it with my copics, layered it my embossed cuttlebug slip and added the sentiments. The image and matte are done with my spellbinders.

I hope you all have a blessed weekend and that the signs of spring will show!
