So I kept thinking about what to get my mom for Mother's Day, and I know she enjoys when I make things for her, so I thought a nice note card/stationary set would be perfect! And this is what I came up with:
This is a set of 6 note cards placed in a desktop organizer (template found at papertrey ink).
I used white card stock as my base, and then stamped a flower image on sage shadow cardstock and cut that so that it was a little smaller than the base. I then used a corner punch and punch the corners of both pieces. The polka dot ribbon is AWESOME! I am in love with polka dots and I think that it adds some fun and a modern touch to the floral design. My moms name is Bonnie so that is why it's a 'B' monogram.
The desktop organizer was made out of one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 Kraft cardstock. Lauren Meader makes the best templates! So many things you can do with them, they're very versatile and worth the $5.00!
This is the card I gave her. I FINALLY used my new cuttlebug for a card! I love this machine and I am so excited to about using it more. The chocolate chip cardstock is embossed with a polka dot border. I used a ticket corner punch to get that look on the corners. I was inspired by this layout from clean & simple stamping.
