Simply Soft Elegant Mother’s Day Card

I keep forgetting Mother’s Day is this weekend!  Thankfully, I ran a class last week specifically for creating Mother’s Day cards, so now I have a stash that I can use this weekend since I’m sure I’ll forget again and think I have a couple weeks. 🙂  Today I thought I’d share one of my favorite cards from the class using the Simply Soft hostess set.  I like that it looks simple yet elegant:

This is also one of the cards that went out this month in my Cards To Go program, so hopefully some folks are getting good use out of this design for Mother’s Day too!

To create the banner points at the end of the sentiment, I used the Pennant Punch punching technique I described in this blog post.  I love it!

Finally, I added a bit of fun to this class by creating coordinated envelopes to go with the cards.  In this case we stamped the outline shape on the front of the envelope and then did the colored flower heads on the back flap of the envelope back of hostess mothers day card envelope

 

I don’t know why I always forget to stamp my envelopes… but when you have Whisper White envelopes from Stampin’ Up! its almost a waste not to stamp on them since the paper is explicitly made to be excellent to stamp on.

I’m thinking this is going to go to my Grandma…another elegant lady in my life. 🙂

  1. I just LOVE this set! So bummed it’s going away (and that I never bought it). I love the color combo of your card. I have such a hard time with purples. I’m going to pull out these colors next week and give it a go.

Please leave a comment! I love hearing from you.
