Mother's Day Cards

Using an unbranded bow die, I made 2 mother's day cards. I cut the bow with pink and white, and added lots of wink of stella glitter to the embossed portions of the bow. I used a piece of Lawn Fawn plaid dsp for the background, and a SU! sentiment, then added 2 puffy stickers along with a clear oval gemstone to the center of the bow.

Here's a closeup of the WOS shimmer. I love that stuff!

Here's a 2nd one I made using red and white. I embossed the background with a Tim Holtz damask ef, and kept this one CAS.

I'm not entering these into any challenges - just posting them before Mother's day tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Saturday!

I see you were having a play at your sweet little bow die. I think it is going to come to be a very useful item. The red on the bottom card looks like velvet!
