Happy Mother's Day Cards

Happy Mother's Day to all the mommies out there!  

I am quite happy with how our cards for Mother's Day turned out this year, so I thought I'd share.  I enjoy hand-making cards, and I maintain a stock of paper, blank cards, and supplies so I can put together cards on a moment's notice for almost any occasion.

I got out a few sets of pretty paper and let my 3-year-old choose the specific paper for this year's Mother's Day cards.  She chose this colorful, funky, flowery paper. 


From there, we decided how to deliver the message.  I usually use a stamp for this purpose, but this year I didn't want to just say "Happy Mother's Day".  I chose this stamp with a bird and cute flower that says "for you" and stamped it on yellow paper that coordinates with the main paper in brown ink.  I also ran the ink pad around the outside edge of the cut-out to finish it off.


Then Alyssa helped me choose an embellishment to add a little something extra to the simple design.  We chose mauve heart-shaped brads.  I used my Croc-o-Dile punch to attach the message paper to the main paper with the brad as shown. 


We've had a nice day of visiting with family and I'm looking forward to a quiet, relaxing evening with my kids and hubby tonight.  What do you do to celebrate Mother's Day?
