Mother's Day 2013: Part Two

Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms!  I hope you get a chance to slow down and enjoy family today.  Although, I don't know about you, we are busy, busy, busy. Lacrosse and soccer and grandbabies today.  I wouldn't trade it for the world!  

I am sharing two more Mother's Day cards today. The first one I made for my Mom. She appreciates pretty!  So that is what I gave her.  

I started with Core'dinations Cardstock as the base of my card.  By scoring about 1/8 of an inch in around the front of the card and sanding the score marks, I created a simple frame.  The sentiment is printed on a piece of patterned paper.  Lots and lots of glitter was used to give the flowers some shimmer.  
Prima Flowers
7 Dots Paper and Sticker
Want 2 Scrap Bling
Martha Stewart Glitter (fine and course)

Next up is my Mother-In-Law's card. I went with a vintage flair for my MIL's card. 

This card is one that looks like a lot of work went into it, but really is quite a simple card.  I used the most recent sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

The 7 Dots printed paper is embossed with Craft Concepts "Christmas Vine" embossing folder for the background.   The embossing really makes it look like I did more work to create this pretty card than I really did! 

I have posted this to CropStop's NSD Embossing Challenge.  If you haven't checked it out yet, you should!  Just create an embossed project and upload to the challenge by May 18th @ midnight.
