Three cards I finished up this morning for Mother's Day.
inside - created with an element from the Love You Mom digi kit by JMC Designs
that I recolored in Photoshop Elements
The first, very colorful one was given to my Mother. Not the typical card, aside from having flowers on it, that I gave to my Mom. It's much bolder colors than I normally use, which was a fun change. Why did I go so bright on this card ? It was originally designed for an upcoming design team project. After having completed it, I found out that I had to go a different route with my project so I added the Happy Mother's Day tag and gave it to my Mom.
This colorful card creation fits the newest photo inspiration challenge at Sunny Day Crafting perfectly, Challenge #6 Make A Colorful Project OR A Project With Fruit.
The second card is one I've had in my premade cards stash for quite some time. The colors faded shortly after stamping it, so I never gave it away. It was a precut card gifted to me, the card stock seemed more porous on the inside and semi glossy on the front panel, neither side held the ink well. I added more color, a touch of glitter glue on the flower petals, vellum strip for the sentiment and a piece or peach organdy ribbon knotted before giving it to my sisters mother-in-law.
I'm entering the above card in the Week #275 Pastel Colors Challenge at Less Is More.
Thanks for looking :) I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day.
