Wonderful Mother

Hi all! Well it's been a wet day here for sure, after catching up on some work I spent a good while curled up on the couch with a book - the cats definitely appreciated being able to curl up in front of the heater!

Here's a simple Mother's Day card (no Mum - this isn't your one!) that I shared with a great bunch of ladies over the weekend. It was inspired by a card on page 111 of the current catalogue. I love the look of the spiral punch, but always forget to pull it out - I'll have to show it some more love!
We used two of my favourite sets for this one, Priceless and Wonderful Favourites. Everyone loved the different combinations for the sentiment that Wonderful Favourites provides - it's the perfect set for a cardmaker or scrapbooker (and you can't beat 23 stamps for $46.95!) Some ladies chose to make a card for their sisters, daughters or friends.

This card's about as simple as it looks, the Vanilla layer is up on dimensionals, as are the cut out butterflies. The pale plum squares were punched out with the 1 1/4" punch.

I used my quick cheat for the sentiment - just stamp it on an angle! No worrying about if it's straight or not, and it looks great with these curly fonts!
Hope you had a great Wednesday, only two more days till the weekend!

  1. Yay for the spiral punch ... I love that look too ... must put the punch back on my wish list! Wonderful favourites sounds like a wish list item too.

  3. That looks amazing... what a great concept... Wonderful Favourites has moved up my wish list along with the spril punch. Thank you for sharing

  4. Love the colours in the card - and even your simple looks so glamourous! Yep, that spiral is looking like a good idea. I think I'm likely to end up with almost all the punches one day!! LOL
