Mothering Sunday Card

The challenge on Scrapology for making a card this month has been set by Krafty Karen who wants us all to make cards for a special lady in our lives. I have made a Mother's day card for my Godmother as my design team card.


I used cardstock and some patterned paper scraps to make this shaped card using the Cricut and the Country Life cartridge. I cut two shadows in brown to make the card base. The basic shape was cut in green to give me the leaves and stalks. Then I cut the jug in patterned paper and the flowers twice so I could off set them.

I inked the petals in pale pink and added yellow buttons to the centres with some green soft cotton thread to create large daisies.

My greeting is made with a Lili of the Valley sentiment stamp and Memento, yjo ws punched out with a Woodware circle punch and inked around the edges with pale pink. Next this was mounted with foam pads onto a green punched circle (Stampin' Up) and a white Woodware scalloped circle. All was tied in place with some green organza ribbon.

Thanks to this challenge, I'm ready nice and early for Mothering Sunday which is 30th March in the UK. Just as well my Godmother dosen't read my blog! I have another hidden away for my Mum, which I will blog on the day.

Happy Mothering Sunday and thanks for looking.
