a mother’s day card…

It’s Friday – and that means I have another Slice project to share with you today!  Of course, in honor of the upcoming holiday, I opted to use my Slice to create a Mother’s Day Card. 


I used one of the newer Slice Design Cards – Grandma’s Attic to cut this sweet bird/nest/branch image as well as the tag behind the bird.


Would you have guessed that the line I used for almost all of my project (including the actual card base & envelope) is actually the latest Valentine’s Day line from Making Memories?  It is Je t’Adore – and it’s still available for purchase here.  I think the soft pinks and subtle designs make it perfect for a pretty Mother’s Day card.


I used lots of pop-dots, ink, and layers to add some unique dimension to the image.

The ‘Grandma’s Attic’ design card has a lot of vintage-style images and a really sweet alphabet.  I’ll be sharing more projects featuring some of these images soon!

Have a Happy Mother’s Day!

P.S. Did you notice something interesting in that first photo?  The GREEN in the background?  Yep – those are real live bushes in my yard.  Spring is FINALLY starting to think about making a debut here – yay!
