Mother's Day - Verve Style

Whoo Hoo - I got another card done. This one is heading to Michelle to sell at the knitting shop. She called me last week and said that Pam was wondering if I might like to make some Mother's Day cards - baby tags - and Notes to sell in the shop. I said sure. Why not turn my creative fix into cash if possible. I love to make new cards and try techniques so this might be an outlet for that.

Any hoo. I was visiting the Verve Blog again and looking through the cards submitted for the weekend challenge and found one from Jodi Collins that I loved. I loved the colors and the butterflies and thought - let's try it and turn it into a Mother's Day Card. I also made one with the "My life is richly blessed by you" from the Verve Thankful Blossoms set. That card I'm sending to a friend that hosted a lovely dinner last night.

Ok - so the new Nesties are out and getting used. I layered the white and green classic circles and added the scallop with a bit of paper piercing. I then added a white scallop border but for this I had a twist - I don't have a plain scallop border, mine is the Fiskars with the center hole. So, put the white paper through my long rectangle Nestie. I just made it smaller than the length so that the edges wouldn't be scallped. Yes, I am quite pleased with this.

I also added a Martha Stewart butterfly adorned with Kaiser adhesive pearls. And then I trimmed the inside to match the front...

Let me know what you think - I'd love your input.

Have a great night.
