Just for You Mother's Day Card

It's May already, and Mother's Day is this Sunday.  So when I sat down to figure out what I was going to make at my National Scrapbook Day event, it occurred to me that I didn't have any Mother's Day cards to send to my aunts and friends.  Oh no!

After combing through some cards I had pinned onto my Cards :: All Occasions Pinterest board for inspiration, I knew just where to borrow my design for this Just For You Card.  

A few months ago, I pinned a beautiful birthday card by one of our Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team members, Teneale Williams of Australia, and knew it was perfect for the many Mother's Day cards I had to make.  Besides, her design allowed me to use a lot of retiring products that I haven't had the opportunity to put to work.

The retiring products I used are:
  • Stamp set in the Hip Hip Hooray Card Kit
  • Perforated tags in the Celebration Basics Kit
  • Champagne Glimmer Paper
  • Baked Brown Sugar Cardstock, 
  • Pumpkin Pie polka dot paper from the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack
  • and Starburst Framelits Dies

I love the overlapping flowers in the center of my butterfly that I punched from Pumpkin Pie Cardstock using the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.  They add the perfect pop of color!

I am surely going to miss all of these retiring products, but it just means that I have to make room for more fabulous Stampin' Up! goodies, right?!

If you still need to make Mother's Day cards, this design is simple yet beautiful, and quick to whip up!  Grab your supplies and make it work, as Tim Gunn would say.  

You will find all of the Stampin' Up! products I used to create this card below.  Please note that products on the Retiring List (click the links to go to the retiring stamps and retiring accessories) are available while supplies last, so get them before they're gone forever.  The best part is mOnline Store is open 24/7!  Click any of the links below to go right to that item.

Until next time, happy crafting!
