For Mother's Day, I was inspired by this card. I love her idea of using Christmas cartridges for non-Christmas events. Otherwise, my Winter Frolic cartridge will have to be dusted off every year when I make my Christmas cards and then never used for another whole year.
For my version, I wanted to focus more on the pink. I used a pink cardstock as the card and a pink patterned paper from KI Memories Classic stack. I used my Tonic Studios corner chomper on the patterned paper. The yellow ribbon is, I think, from American Crafts. All of my ribbon is pretty much in jars and separated by color, and it isn't on it's spools. But I know I bought a lot of American Crafts ribbon at some point, so it's a good chance. The cut, like I said, is from Winter Frolic. I left off the santa hat that the mom bird is supposed to wear, and I drew their eyes on with a Fiskars gel pen instead of using the cut.
I stamped the inside of the card with stamps from Joy's Life. The "happy" comes from Joy's Everyday Occasions and the "Mothers" and "Day" are from Joy's Holiday Occasions. I love these stamps because with just two sets, you have sentiments to cover every major event in life. I LOVE mix and match stamps!
My Father's Day card was inspired by this one. I have the Wild Card cartridge, and I should be using it all the time. But I don't. So I was searching around for ideas of how to use it practically. Like the inspiration card, I used the Happy Father's Day sentiment from later in the handbook. I like the cream background with the various colors of blue.
The sentiment on the inside, "Celebrate," is from Pink by Design's Scripted Year. Perfect!
