Stampin' Up! Mother's Day - Best Friends Forever

I wanted to quickly share the Mother's Day card I made for my mom for Mother's Day. I was inspired by Kay Kalthoff (I love her style!). Here is her card. I chose Poppy Parade because my mom's birthstone is ruby and I also chose Tempting Turquoise because she always wore turquoise jewelry when I was a young child. (Fortunately she outgrew that phase!) I used Pretty in Pink to offset the two bold colors. Did you notice the scoring in the Pretty in Pink border? I always wanted to try that so I finally did!

I forgot to take the picture of the inside before I wrote my message to my mom, but I'll share. I love to make people laugh so inserting a funny sentiment into my cards is not uncommon - even for Mother's Day!

The leaves are from Best Friends Forever (retiring), the "Happy Mother's Day" is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. I love the versatility of that set! The "MOM" is spelled with the Lovely Letters alphabet set, and the flowers on the inside are from For All You Do (retiring). Make sure to get your favorite stamps and supplies before they are gone!

Supplies used for this card:

  • Stamps: Best Friends Forever (Retiring), Teeny Tiny Wishes, Lovely Letters, For All You Do (Retiring)
  • Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Poppy Parade, Tempting Turquoise
  • Paper: Poppy Parade, Pretty in Pink, Tempting Turquoise, and Naturals Ivory card stock
  • Tools/Accessories: Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Butterfly Sizzlit, Pearl Basic Jewels, Lace Border border punch
