I was a little late getting my cards in the mail, but I’m pretty sure they arrived today. So I feel safe in posting the cards.
First up is the card I sent to my mom. I recently got some Flower Soft. (Joyclynn sent it to me! Thank you again!) I’ve been wanting to try it, but I think I aimed a little high for my first attempt, lol. I chose a pretty big flower and then stamped it multiple times. The final focal image ended up taking up most of the card. I tried to embellish it, but I only managed a couple little touches. I do like the card, but it isn’t the fabulous card my mom deserves!That’s what I get for letting it sneak up on me.
This card is for my mother-in-law. My hubby picked the colors and theme. It is a pretty simple card. I did decide I need to get some CTMH paper – they have a color – Bamboo – that is awesome. I have the ink, but for some reason I didn’t get the paper. I remedied that this weekend 🙂
