Mother's Day Cards

I found the first card on Pinterest and made the bottom 4 following it. The papers I used are Recollections Dark Purple Plaid w/ Recollections Bright Plaid Dots, Colorbok Spring Morning Pattern Pack, Basic Grey Out of Print Storyteller w/ K & Company, and then K& Company- I don't remember the collection because I was given the paper from a friend. "Happy Mother's Day" was stamped- Studio G I Clear- on My Mind's Eye Happier pieces of 6x6 pad. The green striped ribbon is American Crafts Premium Ribbon, the green & pink ribbon is American Crafts Peachy Keen Premium Ribbon, and the other 2 are from Heather Lynn. The flowers on each card are Studio 18 Terrain Chipboard Stickers. I used my Xyron 1.5 Create-A-Sticker to adhere the ribbons and the stamped pieces. I love using it in my cardmaking and scrapbooking!
I'm going to give these to my mom, stepmom, and both grandmothers. I saved myself a little money this year by making them all a card! :)  I have to write a short note in each and mail 2 of them. I'll probably see one of my grandmother's on Mother's Day. My other grandmother is in the hospital right now for rehab after having a pacemaker put in due to congestive heart failure so I'm sure she'll love my card. That's what inspired me to make my Mother's Day cards this year! :) I tried to trim each one to fit in an envelope & still need to trim them down some. I'm gonna give the tallest one to my mom. I don't wanna trim that one down! That was the first one I made and then remembered I needed to trim them to fit in an envelope! I don't usually mail my cards so I don't think about the envelope. I ended up trimming the envelope by mistake! I love my XACTO paper trimmer! As you can tell, I love using my EK Success 12x12 mat!  TFL & have a great Mother's Day weekend! :)
