I love creating handmade gifts for the most important people…and who is more important than the mother figures in our lives?  It’s not too late to create something today…here’s an idea to get you started!!
Good morning Fancy Pants fans! Nicole here to share some fun cards using the Bright Side collection! I am a huge paper hoarder, so I am always trying to stretch my paper supplies as much as possible.
I created these cards with minimal supplies and you can too!
Mom cards
I started by fussy cutting several sprigs from the pretty floral paper in the Bright Side collection 6×6 paper pad. I cut a few whole images, but mostly just the half shapes around the outer edge of the patterned paper.
Once I had all the pieces cut, I added a few washes of bright yellow paint to two different card bases for a big POP of color!

For this first card, I used a frame from the Bright Side ephemera diecut pack. Once I adhered it with some foam adhesive to the front of the card base I added in lots of those fussy cut flowers along the one edge of the frame. All that was left to do was add a title using of puffy letter stickers from the Joy Parade collection to add a sentiment.

For my second card, I used those same fussy cut flowers and adhered them around a sentiment stamped pennant title.  I added some tiny little fussy cut red flowers from the same patterned paper  and a few enamel dots to complete the design on the card.

This is a great way to create multiple cards with a similar look, but unique as well!  Most of us have more than 1 card to give on Mother’s Day so it’s a fun way to create a handmade gift for those that are so deserving!  Thanks for joining me today!
