Mother's Day Card

As soon as I saw the Happy Mother's Day set from My Favorite Things, I knew I wanted it! I thought the dress would be perfect for paper piecing (probably my all time favorite technique!) and I could do some paper tole effects with the pot of flowers. Here's what I came up with (you may have to enlarge to really see how many layers there are):
I think I used about 6-7 layers in total, including a couple layers of craft foam. I even popped up the bitty flowers in the corners of the frame! I had so much fun with this set, I can't wait to play with it some more! The frame can be cut off if the words aren't quite right for that particular project, and the pot of flowers can even be used by itself. Hey, you could even just use the pot and stick some different flowers in it! Such versatility from a mini set!

Other materials used: white cardstock from Georgia Pacific; patterned papers from K&Co.; Copic markers; Stickles glitter glue; Dew Drops from the Robin's Nest; Prima flowers; ribbon from May Arts; Nestabilities.


  1. What a beautiful card!!! I love everything about it!!! Love all of the layers!!

  2. What a gorgeous card! I love all of the layers!

  3. Stunning card! Love all the layers.

  4. Glad I'm not the only one who eyes up everything to see if I can decoupage it! This is a great card.
    Incidentally, although the UK had mother's day in March, I think France (and rest of Europe ?) is same day as US: It's towards the end of May here.

  5. HOLY COW! THIS IS AWESOME! Sorry for screaming but HOT DAWG! :)
