Mother's Day - 6" Paper Pads

Hi Ladies,

Mother's Day is only a week away, and for those of you who enjoy making handmade cards, I thought I would share a couple of cards created for Craft Queen, using the gorgeous Prima Divine 6" paper pad and the matching Notecards and Crate Paper Fourteen 6" paper pad.  Using 6" paper pads with a few gorgeous embellishments and a little washi tape or ribbon are a quick and easy way to create a special card without too much fuss, to show one of the most special people in your life how much you care.

Hugs and Kisses
I cut out the centre of the Prima notecard and backed it with some of the Prima paper, then stamped my greeting in the centre for this card.  I also cut out the teacup from one of the other notecards and layered it with some foam tape.  The floral washi tape was torn and used on the edges of the card base and I also adhered some to the back of my crumpled peekaboo corner.  Finished off with some pretty mint satin seam binding tied into a bow and topped with a cream pearl resin flower.

Special Day
On this card I tore the chevron pp and overlapped it on the heart pp, tucked some pink stitched ric rac underneath the torn edge.  I also cut out 3 hearts and gave them some dimension by adhering with foam tape.  The ocean lace washi tape was torn and adhered to the edges of the chevron pp.  I then stamped the Kaisercraft flutter and greeting stamp in black over the top.

The little flower cluster was made with 2 sheer organza flowers with some aqua paper flowers from my stash underneath to create some softness.  I folded the sateen white flowers in half and tucked them under the flowers, then topped the flower centres with a small round pearl.  I finished off with a couple of the cute pearl 5 petal flowers adhered to the torn edge of the pp.

Thanks so much for stopping by ♥
