Mother’s Day Bee

Mother’s Day is around the corner. It’s in about two weeks- May 13th. Have you done any planning? What will you give to mom, grandma, your best momma friend?
Mom’s spend so much time imparting wisdom, love and graciousness into our lives that it is a “holiday” that requires special attention.

I couldn’t think of a better way to make mom feel special than to make a handmade card that is a little more fluffy than normal and pulls out all the supplies.

You can see what I’m getting all the mom’s in my life on this post {Ultimate Mother’s Day Gift Guide}!

A Swallowtail Mother’s Day Card

I love the Swallowtail stamp. It is beautiful. It makes a perfect Mother’s Day card. The card base is Whisper White Card stock.  I used the Large Scallop Edgelit to cut out a crumb cake scallop for the edge of the card. I stamped the Swallowtail in Crumb Cake ink to coordinate. I used Sassy Salutations (my go to greetings set, have you noticed?!) in Calypso Coral so it would stand out. I tied a Pink Pirouette Ribbon around the card. Done. So easy, so pretty.

I wrote a little Mother’s Day note inside.  {Check out the new background. I put a colored cardstock on my 6 cube organizer so it would have colored backing.  I love it! I’ll post a picture of the whole organizer soon. I am in the process of renovating my craft room and its coming along slowly.}
