It's that time for me to work on my Mother's Day cards. Not only do we usually send out four cards, but I also have to make quite a few for the store. Last year I think I only sold 2; the year before I think I sold more than 12. So who knows how many I will sell? :)

For this card, I wanted to showcase these two flowers, so I kept the rest pretty simple. I stamped the flowers onto the white cardstock and then stamped the iris again on purple and green cardstock so I could cut out the respective parts and layer them over the lily of the valley. I also used Copics to add some shading. I attached the iris flower with a foam dot and used some lavender chunky glitter.

Then I matted it on yellow cardstock, adhered that to the white base and stamped the sentiment - Papertrey Ink's Mega Mixed Messages.

Thanks for taking a peek!

Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Lily of the Valley), Stamp Zia (Iris)

  1. That is very beautiful! My mother loved purple flowers so that card would've been perfect for her if she was still alive! I always miss her so much, but especially on Mother's Day and her birthday (which is in February)
