Mother's Day Cards

Next to pedestal cards, I love, love, love pocket cards. I made these two for my mother and mother-in-law for Mother's day.

Flowers are from the 3D Flowers SVG Kit from

I made the pocket card myself using MTC by joining a trapezoid and a rectangle and then duplicating and flipping it.

Paper is DCVW and Recollections. Stamps are from My Pink Stamper.

I hope you enjoy:

Baby Shower Card for boy/girl twins

Friends of my husband are expecting twins and we were invited to a Jack and Jill baby shower. I made this card to celebrate the boy and girl that they are soon going to welcome into their family.

Card is A2. Stork is cut out at 3.5 inches. Babies are just over an inch (I think). I used colored pencils to edge all of the shapes.

If I had to do it over, I would add texture to the blankets and hat. It is definately missing something.

Card base and mat are DCWV
babies and blankets are PTI
stork cut out from scraps
Ribbon is recollections.

Baby Cards

My MIL loves to give homemard cards so she often comes to me with requests. This time it was baby cards for two showers she was invited to. Here's what I came up with ....

This one is for a boy. I used the onsie SVG file that I downloaded here -

paper is DCWV
buttons from PTI
stamp is from My Pink Stamper Everyday Occasions set

The next one is for a girl

Paper is DCWV
Button is PTI
Ribbon from Michaels
Onsie cut from New Arrival
Scalloped Ovals from Gypsy Wanderings
Martha Stewart border punch (I don't remember the name - why don't they print it on the punch itself?)
Stamp from Recollections Sweet Baby Girl set

I loved the card designed by Kristine Reynolds in the March 2011 issue of CardMaker magazine (page 58). I scraplifted the design, just suited it to my needs and my supplies.

Whooo Loves You

I have a friend who is going through a very tough time. She is my oldest daughters Godmother and practically a sister to me. I wanted to send her a card to make her smile. This turned out to be one of my favorites.

I used the gypsy and cut the owl and branch from Create-A-Critter.
The cardstock is DCWV. I used glossy accents for the wings and leaves. Ribbon is from Michael's.
Stamp is My Pink Stamper from the Punny-licious set and it is stamped in brown.
I used Card Patterns Sketch #55

Happy Birthday Mom!

My mom loves pansies. When I looked for a pansy shape on my cartridges I didn't have one (and I didn't have MTC at the time). All of the you tube videos I could find used the MS Butterfly punch, which I also didn't have. So I searched my carts to see if there was something similar.

On wild card, I found a bow on page 76 and improvised, using that instead. It required a little altering (it needed "notches" to make it look like wings) but I think it came out beautifully.
