Mothers Day Cards

Hello fellow Crafters:) Hope everyone had a great weekend and a fabulous National Scrapbook Day. I found some time to craft this weekend, and made these two beautiful mothers day cards. At first glance they might look identical, but their slightly different lol. I made these Mothers Day cards to give out to my Mom and Mother in-law for Mothers Day.

The paper came from DCWV and also from I think it was a My Minds Eye paper stack (sorry I don't remember the name of the paper).  I used lots and lots of My Creative Time products for my card. I love, love, love the dies and stamps that Emma releases. Trust me, you need to get your hands on some of her products to play with:)lol

I cut the frame out from chipboard and then took some of my brand new Ferro Brenstein-Gold paint. OMG this paint is awesome! The picture doesn't do it justice. Not only is the paint a rich and shinny gold, it also leaves a bit of a granny residue to give it a rustic effect, totally awesome! I got this paint at Scrapbooking Made Simple, my new favorite crafting store to go to, I just wished I lived closer to them lol:) 

For the inside of my card I kept it simple.

Loved how my cards turned out, there chic, classy, and girly:)lol. 

Supplies used: All dies and stamps can be found at My Creative Time online store.
Stiched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies 
Stitched Postage Frame Die 
Lowercase Fun Dies 
More Gift Card Sentiments 
Rolled Flower Dies 
Stitched Leave Dies 
Ferro Berstein-Gold/Amber Gold paint can be found at Scrapbooking Made Simple

I would like to enter my cards in the following challenges:

Peace, Love, & Creative Hugs!
