Mother's Day Cards

Check out these amazing cards to celebrate Mom!

Mother's Day Cards

I decided to work with my Silhouette Cameo to help in the creation of my cards today!  I used a cut file for the first one that was in the shape of the word MOM.

I cut the base in white so that I could use some pretty patterns in the rest of it. The colors of "Welcome Spring" are perfect for making those Mother's Day cards too! 

As I worked on it I realized I needed something extra so I cut out the "I heart mom" phrase in yellow to add an extra pop of color and added a shadow to it. A fussy cut yellow butterfly added the final touch.

For my second card I was inspired by the patterns on the paper and decided to do some serious fussy cutting to create ruffles.  I love looking at patterned papers and trying to find some different way to use them!  I used the 6 X 6 paper pad for this so that the cuts were more card sized.

After cutting and adhering the rows of scallops, I rolled them up so that they got that ruffle look.  I then went through and added IRocks throughout the rows.  

I liked the look of the sentiment on my last card. So I used the same sentiment cut from my Silhouette as I did on the previous card and added a simple knot at the top of the card to finish it off.

Supplies Used:
Imaginisce: Patterned Paper (Welcome Spring), IRocks
American Crafts: Cardstock
