Five Mother's Day Cards

Happy Mother's Day!  I thought I would share a few cards that I made for a co-worker of my husband.  She needed a few Mother's Day cards and I was happy to help her out.

I used patterned paper from KaiserCraft's Lush Collection for each card.  There are some great die cut tags and labels in the pack.  At the CHA show in Chicago two years ago the people at the KaiserCraft booth were so generous with their goodies.  I received several 6x6 paper pads, glue sticks, embellishments and more.  It's sad that I hadn't even touched this paper pack in two years!  Shame, shame.

It felt good to finally use some of these gorgeous papers.  It was so easy to make a few quick cards combining the papers with a variety of small embellishments.

Here are the cards:

The layout for the last one was CASE'd from Natasha Trupp's card HERE.

Have a great week,

You have been a busy little bee! Each and very card you made is so beautiful and your colors, all so perfect, they really make such elegant Mother's Day cards.

These are all so pretty. I'm sure your friend loved them all, and some mommas are very happy now. I really like the last one, with that half circle.

Very pretty cards!! I love the colors you used, and I like how you let the patterned paper stand alone on some of the cards. And I love that embossing on white cardstock, too. Beautiful!

Oh wow! I'm sure she was thrilled to receive these! My favorites are the first and the last. I love all the bold patterned papers you chose to use!
