Mother’s Day is always a little sad for me every year. I lost my wonderful Mother in 2011. She was an amazing feisty southern lady. I still miss her so much. While I miss my Mom on Mother’s Day I am very very fortunate to have an awesome Mother in law who treats me just like a daughter. So, I look forward to showering her with my handmade gifts.
For my Mother’s Day Project, I have a card and a matching Square Pillow Box. I’m sure I can find something pretty to fit in this pretty box to give to my Mother in law. I think she will love it.
I used the Circle of Spring Stamp set for both my card and my pillow box. I just love this set. It is so pretty.
I wanted my wreath to have a softer look so I stamped it with my Pear Pizzazz ink pad rather than Black. I really love how it came out. I colored the flowers and leaves using my Stampin’ Write Markers in Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive. The wreath is cut out using the Wonderful Wreath Framlits then I centered the wreath on top of Whisper White card stock. Happy Mother’s Day is stamped in the center of the wreath with Black Memento Ink. I popped my wreath up with Dimensionals and added Basic Pearl Jewels. I added a strip of Subtles Designer Series Paper and layered Blushing Bride Cotton Ribbon on top. The card is finished off with a layer of Melon Mambo card stock on top of a Blushing Bride card base.
I pretty much copied my card on top of my Square Pillow Box. The front of the box is Blushing Bride and the back is Mellon Mambo. I used Tear and Tape adhesive to put this box together to make sure it had a strong hold.
I have a complete supply list at the bottom of this post. I hope you have enjoyed my projects today. Please continue through all the blogs. I know you won’t be disappointed. Happy Mother’s Day!
