Mother's Day Cards

So far I made 3 cards today.  Husband was off and I really wanted to spend some quality time with him even if we had the 1.5 yr. old with us it was still fun.

Mother's Day Card Recipe for both of this cards is

5 1/2 L X 12 W of Cardstock
Score at 4" and 8"
1 1/2" in cut from 6" to 10" on both sides
Score at 1 1/2" in @ 6" on both sides
Score at the 10" score line inside the 1 1/2 cut

The papers I used on this one is from Stampin Up Raspberry Tart.
The bouquet of flowers is a freebie from Simply Cards & Papercrafts Magazine.  I accented the flowers with Stickles "Star Dust"

The main sentiment is printed from vellum.  The "Mama"(1 1/2) die-cut is from Cricut Mothers Day 2010 Cartridge with Stampin' Up's Pop Dots.  I also used Papertrey Ink stamp.  The ribbon is from Michael's

The Paper from this one is from K & Co Berry Sweet Stack which already had glitter in it and double sided.  The Mother's Day (4") cut is from Cricut's "Mother's Day 2010 cartridge"

The inside sentiment was also printed on Vellum.  The Mama die-cut (1 1/2") is also from the Cricut Cartridge.  The flower is from Daisy Doodles the brad in the middle is glittered and from Memory Keepers and ribbon from Michaels.

The recipe for this one is really simple it's a standard gate fold

Paper is 8 1/2 L X 5 1/2 W
Scored at the 2 1/8 and 6 3/8

Patterned Paper on the front panel is from Nana's Kids Stack and ribbon is from Michaels.

The Mother's Day die-cut (4") is from the same cricut cartridge.  The inside panel is patterned paper freebie from Simply Cards & Stamp Papercraft Magazine.  I also used a little bit of Stickles (Star dust) on some of the flowers.

All the cards if not bulky should fit regular A2 envelopes.
