Busy Card Making in May

May is crunch time at my house for card making--a couple birthdays, graduations, Mother's Day, Thank You cards for work.

Mother's Day, in particular, always sneaks up on me!

Today's post is a show-and-tell.  More information about these cards to follow.

Starting with not-my-favorite.  I made this card in 2 hours because it HAD to get into the mail on Wednesday afternoon.  I like the papers and the birds, but I don't love the fabric flowers.  I can't quite put my finger on why.  The colors are right, but something is off about them.  Probably should have used felt flowers.

This is a double Z fold pop up card for Mother's Day.  Finished size is 6" x 5.5".
Splitcoast stampers has a good tutorial, and check out Pinterest for more ideas.

The birds are from Jolee's Boutique, they're called "stitched colorful birds."




Now this card IS my favorite.  My daughter and I purchased the vector flowers from GraphikCliparts to create her grad cap.   Since it's a vector design it scales to any size, thus, this graduation cap spring fold card.

I cut the footprints with my Silhouette Cameo.  They are MINUSCULE!




That's all for now!
