A Card for Mom

Standard

I know I already posted my Mother’s Day card for this year, but this card is for my MIL! I was pretty excited to work with this week’s color story over at The Play Date Cafe!

 

After I cut out all of my letters by hand, I felt like this card was going to be a little plain, so I figured I’d replace the O with a little button. This still left the card seeming a little bit naked, so I was able to create a great looking flower out of white duct tape! Since I don’t have any scalloped scissors and I love the crap out of scalloped edges, I decided to stitch my own by hand, too! The greatest challenge of making this card was probably sewing on the button in a way to get the duct tape petals pinned down just right. I really love the simplicity of this card.

 

Garden Party Mother’s Day Card

Standard

Hey there! Before I get down to business, I’d like to say sorry for not blogging this past week. As of last week, I had to go back to work at my full-time job, which kept me pretty busy. Then our Liberty broke down while Brad and I were on our way home from work, and we had to leave it at a random Jeep dealership along the way. Unfortunately, it looks like we’re not going to be seeing our car again for at least another week. In lighter news, here’s my entry for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge!

This challenge was a lot of fun to work on! I believe the intention of the sketch was to help the participants to use up some scraps, and while I tried to pull that off, I ended up making my scrap pile bigger in the process. When I finished cutting out all of the individual squares, I didn’t think they were lined up quite right, so I then created somewhat of a frame for them out of white cardstock. I love that all the paper I used for the squares has the same texture to it; I hope you can tell from the picture! This flowery card is intended for my mom for Mother’s Day, but today is actually my mom’s 1st wedding anniversary! Be sure to stop by tomorrow, of course, to see the card I’ve made for my mom and her (relatively) new husband.

Anyway, thanks for looking, and be sure to check out this week’s sketch challenge on the Mojo Monday blog!
