Mother’s Day Gift Idea Hop Card and Vase

Good afternoon all,

We are having another wonderful mini hop over at Creative Cutter Room. Up for grabs is the wonderful Mother’s Day Bouquet Cartridge.
So be sure to head over to CCR and join in the fun!

Here is the criteria for the challenge. You need to incorporate the following in your projects.
Must Use the color Pink
Must use Ribbon
Must use Stitching (faux or real)
Must use two different types of flowers.

Here is my project

I am going to give this candle holder to my mom so I thought I would “dress it up” a bit. I made the flowers by using my 50 States Cartridges and the large rose was made using my Gypsy and welding some “leaves” together.

The card was made using the Beautiful Rustic Die Cut With A View Papers and the Lacy Labels Cartridge. The tag was cut at 4.5”

Here is a close up of the flowers. They started out as white and I glitter misted them and inked them.

Here is a shot of the card.

This is an angled shot to try and show the pretty glitter on the paper. The cut really well in your Cricut.

Be sure to also head over to the other Design Team Members
blogs and check out their wonderful work!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Just stunning! You are so lucky to have a Mom to give it to. Cherish her with all your heart. In a flash she could be gone. How I hate Mothers Day since Mom left us. TFS!
