Mothers Day Cards
Here is an assortment of the cards that I made for my church for this coming Mothers Day. I ended up making 98 of them, 90 for church and 8 for myself. They each hold a packet of flower seeds in a pocket which were attached to a pullout with a tab on top, shown on the bottom right of the picture. I used dimentionals on the little flower on the bottom and a half circle knotch to insert the seed packet and hold in place. I wanted to put the seeds on something so after you used the seeds you could recycle the card and send it to someone. I used the different sizzit die cuts and punches to make the different flowers. Also used up lots of different cardstock and DSP to create lots of color on this project.
While doing my mothers day cards I was using a lot of different colors of ink sponging. Before I had all my sponges in a large zip lock bag and just tryed to find the matching color. Somehow I ended up with five or six blacks and several real reds. Well I always wanted to do this but just never got around to it so decided it was time. So I took my scalloped oval punch and punched out the matching cardstock to the ink, labeled it with my label maker, then stapled it to the end of each section of the sponge. So now when I go hunting it is a lot quicker and know I have the right color this time. Love it!!!!!!!
