Many of us think of bunches of flowers for mum and so what better way to combine that and our love of papercrafts - make a 'flower pot pocket card'. I subscribe to a couple of regular forums on Splitcoast Stampers and one of the recent ones was to make a 'flower pot pocket card' and this was linked to Stephanie Luman's blog as a resource and of course there is an array of variations to be viewed in a specific gallery for the 'flower pot pocket cards' or you can even view a gallery of 'mother's day cards and ideas' (maybe an inspiration for next year!).
Anyway here are my mother's day cards using the technique of a 'flower pot pocket card'. As you can see I made the same design for both my mum and my mother-in-law:
Stamps: Occasional Greetings
Cardstock: Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla, Afternoon Tea (designer series paper)
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Groovy Guava
Accessories: 5/8" Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, 5-Petal Flower Punch, Stampin' Write Marker black, Snail Adhesive, Glue Dots and Stampin' Dimensionals
And here are a couple of photos of the special people on my mother's day:Me and my children - Emily (16) and Dylan (18), aren't they two beautiful teenagers?
My daughter Emily Mae, me, Margaret (mother-in-law) and Emily (my mum), and yes my daughter is named after my mum and me!
I hope you all had a blessed and happy mother's day and enjoyed yours as much as I did mine. Thanks again for dropping by to see what I have been up to - although not a lot of crafting this past week! Please feel free to leave any comments you might like to share on my blog.
