This year I really wanted to make mother's day cards, especially for those friends of mine for whom it was the first mother's day. The problem was that time just kind of ran out... as it always does, right? With very limited time (which is a recurring theme on this blog and in my life) I banged out close to 40 cards in one evening. Of course, they were very simple -- but I do like how they turned out. For me, this is verging on artsy fartsy with those abstract leaves. ;-)
For this card I broke out some vintage supplies. The tree, leaves, and butterflies are all from the Stampin' Up! set, Branch Out, which is now sadly retired. Then sentiment is a vintage A Muse Artstamps wood mount. The inks are Stampin' Up! as well -- Green Galore and Glorious Green for the leaves, Only Orange for the butterflies, and... uh... I think Chocolate Chip for the tree and sentiment. Or it could be Close to Cocoa. Gah! My mind is failing me.
The kraft card base is from Paper Source -- I think they call the color "Paper Bag," and I really like it. Vanilla paper is from A Muse.
And by the way, if you are ever looking for a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Amy Corr is second to none. She is located in Lexington, MA. Visit her webpage!
More soon; thanks for stopping by.
