Mother's Day Cards

 This year I made Mother's Day cards for my four daughters, one daughter-in-law and one granddaughter-in-law. The cards are the same with a difference in color and sentiments on the inside.

The topnote was cut from Core'dinations Whitewash cardstock using the Cricut Songbird cartridge, edges  inked, embossed using Cuttlebug Kassie's Brocade folder and sanded to highlight the embossing. Happy Mother's Day was cut using the Cricut Wild Card cartridge and embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. The topnote is raised from the base of the card with foam popups.

Envelopes were made using the Martha Stewart scoreboard
