Happy Mother’s Day


Today is a new release from McMahon Five Design Team.  I used an adorable digital package by Image That called A Flower For You.  Aren’t those little boys cute?  I decided to use both boys and make a card for my grandsons to give to their Mom for Mother’s day.


 A Flower For You - Boy

Details:  My card base and front panel is Neenah Card Stock in both 80# and 110#.  The remaining colored papers are from my stash.  The card measures 5-1/2” square.  The top layer I used both digital images since my grandsons have blonde and brown hair with blue eyes.  You can get this adorable digital package here.

On the blue layer I hand stitched the edges using a cross Stitch pattern.  The three corners have tiny bows created using a mold.   The flower is from my stash and I colored the top petals and pearl using two Copic Markers (Golden yellow and Chinese orange).  I added some Wink of Stella glitter brush to the bows, flowers, and grass.  Inside verse reads:  Some kids are born lucky.  They get to have the best kinda Mom.  And I’m the luckiest…coz You are mine.  Happy Mother’s Day… Mom!
