Happy Mother's Day

Looks like we are going to have a beautiful day for Mother's Day here in Michigan! I'm lucky to be spending the day with my Mom. She is a quilter, so I like to incorporate that into my cards for her when I can. So I used the beautiful new Paisley Petals papers cut into 1" squares to make up my background "quilt" for her Mother's Day card.


I watercolored the flower image from Blessed Mother using Classic Inks and my aquapainter. I couldn't decide which sentiment I wanted to use, so I made an easel card so I could use them both! lol To make the easel base, just cut the card stock the same width as your card front (in this case 4 1/4") by 8". Then score at 2" and again at 4". Fold and then mount your card front to the easel base. It folds up to fit into an envelope. Here's another view to see the base...

I hope you have a beautiful day celebrating Mother's Day with your family.
