Mom's Day cards!

Happy Mother's Day Mom!  Sorry, they're a week late, actually they'll be later by the time they get in the mail.... :}

These are a couple of the Great Impressions monthly stamps from last month and I used the image layout of the roses and script from one of their sample cards.  Stamp the roses on cardstock and on scrap, cut out scrap image closely, adhere to image on the cardstock and over-stamp with script stamp until height (length) desired.  The script is stamped 3 times on both of these cards.


The script reads, " God created the rose in the likeness of a woman.  The rose represents beauty.  The stem represents strength. Petals are soft as her delicate skin. The fragrance is pure and so sweet.  Leaves represent arms outstretched, always giving.  Each time you look at this rose remember ... God made you special. "  I thought these stamps were beautiful and appropriate for a Mom's day card!  

To dress up the inside a bit, the roses are stamped 2nd generation to lighten the gray a bit.

Stamps: Great Impressions
Ink: Memento-Images, TH Distress-sponging; Prism Colored Pencils
Paper: K&Company-green x-pattern (red roses), Kaisercraft-green & pink pattern paper framing the image (pink roses)
Other: Red rose card-Martha Stewart large leafy border punch; Pink card-Memory Box-Catalina Wreath die (pink card, wreath cut in 2 and draped over top half, kinda gives it a heart shape look), Blue Moon-heart trinket, JoAnns-ribbon
