So it has been some time since I have been able to update. I have made lots of projects, but finding the time to post has been the problem. So I thought today I would post the cards I made for Mother’s day and Fathers day. When I got married 7 Years ago, I took on the responsibility of making cards for both sets of parents. I make them very similar and add a twist, like changing from landscape to portrait or adjusting the layout somewhat. I really liked how they all came out this year.
First Mom’s (my mom is my best friend, and I am one of those women blessed with an amazing mother in law)
This was left over from another project and was my inspiration
And this layout is what I designed it around
I just got the Spring Rain card stock and some new dies from PTI and wanted to experiment. You can’t see it very well but each square has a texture or addition.
for My Mom
For my Mom In Law
It took some time sorting out the squares and making sure they were evenly spaced, anyone have any tips for next time I will gladly take them.
Next Dad’s(Both dad’s often let me know how much they love these cards, which is an accomplishment for me, as guy cards are the hardest)
This was my inspiration
And this is what I came up with…
For my Father In Law
For my Papa
I love these alphabet dies! Another new card stock color for me from PTI, Canyon Clay. You can’t see it real well but the patterned paper is a layer below the main front of the card.
Hope you liked, thanks for visiting!
