I managed to make a few cards lately too. And I've started something called my Track Back Project. Check it out here.
This one is just like the one I made for my mom and sister for Mother's Day.
I just love how blue and brown go together so nicely. I used my QuicKutz tool to punch out the flower petals, and my new "word window punch tool for the "congratulations" message from Stampin' Up.
I couldn't think of a way to incorporate a sentiment on the front of this card after I was done putting it together. It would be useful for just about any occasion, so I think I'm just going to leave it blank on the outside.
Ever since Liz's Stampin' Up party, I've wanted to try the scalloping technique that Amy Corr taught us. So I went to AC Moore last week and bought one of these corner rounder tools, took off the guard, and voila! LOVE how easy it is to make a scalloped edge now! And to think, I've been handcutting them all this time.
I had this sentiment stamp made through Impress Rubber Stamps because I like the quote so much. I used a lot of scrap pieces of paper on this card.
My mom has been able to sell a lot of cards at the salon lately so she needs me to send her more. Gotta go work on some Father's Day and graduation designs. But before I go, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all you moms out there! :)
