Mother's Day Seed Pack Cards

Here are a whole mess of cards that I made for Mother's Day. I am loving this evolution of the card thing I have going. These aren't in the order that I made them in. These two are the last two cards that I made.

I used Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, and Perfect Plum. I built these cards based on two different challenges. One challenge is Stampin' Royalty's sketch challenge for the week. These cards do mostly fit that sketch.

Another challenge this set of cards fits is the Create with Connie and Mary color challenge for this week. The challenge is to use the color Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, and Perfect Plum, and Whisper White.

Each card has the sentiment happy mother's day from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set that was punched with he oval punch. It is layered on a the same DSP as the top note (from the patterns pack hostess set) that was punched out with the scallop oval.

I used various edge punches on layers. About halfway through this evolution, I thought to put these little white loops of ribbon at the top of the seed packet so it could be easily pulled out from behind the top layer on the card.

The card is still beautiful after you pull the seed packet out!

This card was born out of seeing that sketch on Stampin' Royalty and knowing I had these seed packets to use to make mother's day cards.

I really love the way this turned out. They all follow the same basic pattern, but at the same time, they are all different!

Thanks for looking!
