A traditional Mother's Day card

Good morning all

I'm sure I don't need to remind anyone that Mother's Day is fast approaching
If your mother is anything like mine - she likes a traditional card
flowers, pretty, pink - you get the picture.

So I've made this card as a little inspiration for a traditional pretty
Mothers Day card

the inside

I made the shape of the card by simply folding the square 7 inch card back at just above the half way mark and decorated with pretty papers, and die cuts.  I used collall 3d glue gel to glue it (after adding the papers) as I didn't want it to lie flat, but instead created a slightly dimensional fold
My main inspiration was the Die'sire word dies, I find them so useful, you can make them the central focus of any card really then just add embellishments.

What I did.....

Papers,- Little Angels and Sara's country garden from Sara's Signature collections from Crafter's Companion
Embossing folder - Floral swirls from Sara's signature Floral delights by Crafter's companion
Dies  Words Die'sire essentials female words and words of emdearment sets from Crafter's Companion
           Flowers - Heartfelt Creations from Butterfly Medley collection (dies and stamps)
           Frame  - Spellbinders nestabilities Majesty
           leaves - Memory box fabulous phlox
flower centres - floral punch from woodware
Glues used, Collall 3d glue gel and all purpose glue
Flowers embossed with white detail embossing powder and washed over with Ranger Perfect Pearls in pink gumball

I hope I've given you some inspiration for Mother's Day cards - I'm sure most mums  love flowers for Mothers's Day
