Make a Quick Mother's Day Card!

PhotobucketPin It 
Today's 5" x 7" card was made using the Florals Embellished Cricut cartridge.  I cut the flower at 3-3/4" and used the Imagine to simplify the color selections.  But, you could also cut this flower using the regular Cricut machines. The sentiment is by My Creative Time's "Mom, You Rock" stamp set.

As you can see above, the flower layers from the bottom up and gets thicker as you get up to the last piece, the light purple center.  I like how this adds dimension to the die cut.

I changed out the blue background on the first layer, as suggested by the handbook above.  I liked white better.

Here's another close up of the flower.  The circles in the center cut out nicely with a sticky mat.

I added a 1-1/2" strip of coordinating paper on the inside, as glimpsed above.
I also used another My Creative Time's sentiment on the inside - "Moms are angels put on the earth by God..." - I love that!  Here are all the sentiments on the set:
Paper was by DCWV, Core'dinations and Echo Park. Ribbon by Papertrey Ink.  Scalloped oval combo by Stampin Up!
