Mother's Day Card Two

My Mother In Law just bought the Silhouette Cameo and she made this awesome flower pot card that I could not get out of my head.  So I decided to make a flower card for my mom.  I used Country Life for the flowers and vase and Elise for the paper colors. I added extra flowers from Prima and a plain ribbon. I made the banner from the left over scrap from the bottom card base.

Mother's Day Card One

I had two Mother's Day card to do and of course I waited until the last minute (like everything else).  The first one is for my Mother In Law.  I used the Imagine More cartridge.  I had all the shapes I wanted to cut and print on the Craft Room but it would not sync with my Imagine so I ended up doing it all on the Imagine.  The print paper was a scrap that I found when I was cleaning!! The only shape that is not from the Imagine is the Happy Mother's Day  Bubble.  That is actually Craft Room Basics and I used my Expression to cut that.

My husband asked me to make a baby book and card for a guy at work that just had a baby.  This was on Monday and he needed it by Wednesday!! Seriously!?! Usually it wouldn't be a problem but I knew that Tuesday we were going to spend the day in Pittsburgh.  Luckily while we were there he found out that the guy wouldn't be in until Thursday so I had an extra day. I made the card super simple so that I would have lots of time on the book and I tried to make it match too.

For both the book and the card I used Baby Steps and New Arrival.  The book is a chipboard book that I picked up at Michael's in the dollar bin.  All I had to do was cover it.  The front is from a page kit from Wal-Mart by ColorBok. I also used the same on the back cover too.

I erased the photo, name and info but this page I used paper from Simply fun by Reminisce. I believe the shapes are all from New Arrival.                                                       
For the three pages the paper is from Simply fun by Reminisce again and and shapes are from Baby Steps. I used Baby Steps a lot in this book.  The vine and banana stickers were embellishments that came with the paper stack. I think if I would have had a lot more time I could have more detail but I was really rushed at this point and wanted to make sure that I got it done.
